There is no prerequisite for this class. It’s a great starting place for learning Latin!

This Latin class is the first “real” Latin course for children and while it is easier for children who have completed Latina Christiana, it is also a great beginner course for those who have no Latin experience.

First Form Latin (as the name implies) is the first in our true Latin course. Children will really begin learning Latin in more depth as they learn five noun declensions, six indicative active tenses of the first two verb conjugations, 185 vocabulary words, plus many Latin sayings and derivatives!

First Form Latin is recommended for grades 5th-7th but we do on occasion have a new to Latin 8th grader. 

Magistra Brittany (magistra means teacher in Latin) will guide your student each week: reviewing old lessons, teaching new vocabulary and corresponding derivatives, explaining Latin grammar, and helping children understand their declensions and conjugations.

We provide a suggested “homework” lesson plan to help your child work through their lesson at a good pace. This includes when to do their workbook pages and when to review vocabulary.

Each week there is a quiz that is recommended but is up to the parents to decide if they wish to quiz their child. 

There are also occasional review weeks where the students get to play Latin Jeopardy in class, do their review workbook pages at home, and then take a test at the end of the week. 

There is no prerequisite for this class. It’s a great starting place for learning Latin!

Note: Parents, you will still be the one responsible for grading your child’s work.
