    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Father Henle's books because they are excellent preparation for understanding classic Latin literature. Through the study of Latin, I have learned so much about my own language and its grammar.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to understand difficult tenses. It is amazing to read something someone hundreds of years ago wrote in a dead language and actually understand it!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never neglect vocab! It is the key to not falling behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking Latin 1. It has helped me in many ways through the years since I have taken this course. First of all, it has helped me understand English far better than I did before. By learning the grammar of Latin, I more fully understand English grammar. I also have a far wider vernacular because many English words come from Latin. This helped on the ACT and the SAT because when I came across a word that I didn't know, I could compare it to similar Latin words and gather the definition from that. Also, if you want to learn any of the Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian), Latin is a great foundation to build upon. So, learning Latin is a valuable experience because you can get a lot of good out of it. However, there are some things you should note about Latin 1 before you take it. You cannot take this course and expect to learn it without work. It is not difficult, but it can become overwhelming if you don't memorize the vocabulary and grammar quickly. Don't give up! Keep working and you will get it, even if it doesn't make sense at first. If you don't understand it, go to your teacher and ask for assistance. Latin 1 is a wonderful course to take. It helps in practical ways throughout your life, especially while you are in school. It might not be easy at first, but you can understand it if you persevere!

    Course highlights:

    Latin 1 has taught me many things. I understand English grammar a lot better because I am familiar with Latin grammar. Understanding unfamiliar English words is easier because many of our words come from Latin and are very similar. This course is extremely satisfying when you realize what you have accomplished and can read basic Latin sentences and when you see what help it has been to your English skills.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the vocabulary until you can recite it while you sleep. If you don't know what the words mean, you will be lost when you start to learn how to decline and conjugate them or to create more complicated sentence structures. Also, the grammar is crucial. I did not take it seriously and when I took Latin 3, I had a very hard time trying to remember the old grammar and learn the new. However, it is not difficult if you learn it each week and don't let it pile up. Finally, don't give up! A new language always seems really confusing at first, but once you have the basics, it is such a pleasure to behold the fruits of your labors.
