First, Second, & Third Form Latin (2 hour class) – 8:00 to 10:00

These Latin programs (taken in sequence) cover the Latin grammar comprehensively, instilling mastery that will make your student a successful Latin scholar. The Forms Latin series is based on the method of Latin that was used with elementary grades in the old classical curriculum which provided the foundation of language arts in schools until the beginning of the 20th century, when many schools abandoned Latin. The entire Latin grammar is studied and mastered through the four Forms courses. After Fourth Form, your student will move into more sophisticated translation skills with Henle II/Caesar. To what is taught in each Form, scroll to the bottom of the page. (Grades 5* and up)
