Course Description

Students emerging from a year or two of elementary Latin grammar often feel overwhelmed by the real Latin authors that mark the transition to intermediate Latin. A popular, and excellent, 19th century reader, Fabulae Faciles was designed and perfected over many years to bridge this gap. I have used these stories for years for my own college-level Latin students as independent study materials over the summer which typically separates elementary and intermediate Latin.

In this class, I cover the first reader in the Fabulae Faciles, by providing audio files, guided study, supplementary materials, and, more important, a constant and consistent presence as you work you way through the passages.

What are the requirements?

  • Solid Internet connection with full audio/visual capacities

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Be prepared to more on to the more challenging Hercules stories of the Fabulae Faciles reader
  • Understand and have practiced the basic classroom techniques of the intermediate level of Latin and beyond
  • Have established a healthy study routine that will enable you to master more challenging authors on your own later in your Latin career

What is the target audience?

  • Self-Learners
  • Homeschoolers and their pupils
  • Students in traditional classrooms who want to improve their study skills
  • Teachers of Latin looking for suggestions for conducting recitation classes
