Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Latin, although is a "dead language", learning latin helps in various ways. It can improve your vocabulary, grammar, and you learn a lot of Greek/Roman history too. It's the basis of many languages so if you ever want to learn another language, by taking latin first, learning the other language is pretty simple.
Ms. Kat's personality brings the class to life. We also do a variety of things throughout the year which keeps people interested. Classwork includes vocab, word declension, different voices (passive, subjunctive), verb conjugations, verb tenses, Roman History, translating to Latin/English, projects, and movies.

Advice for students:
I would definitely study! Latin can be difficult, hence the fact that it is strictly an honors course. There are so many declensions and conjugations for a word in addition to various ways it can be translated in English that it can be very confusing. Look over your notes constantly and ask questions. You don't get better at translating by simply copying. Practice translating and study words you don't know. Soon words will stick in your brain.
