This is the second course that covers the very first step of learning the Latin language.  It explains adjective declension (1st/ 2nd & 3rd) and explores the concept of noun-adjective agreement.The course also explains the basic concept of verb conjugation.  It explores three of the six tenses of the indicative active, namely the present, the imperfect and the future  It also covers basic sentence structure, syntax and grammar.  

The course requires the students to have access to Henle Latin First Year (paperback or digital) as well as the reference grammar book (paperback or digital).  The acquisition of "Looking at Latin" can be helpful but not necessary.

This second quarter should take about twelve (12) weeks to complete.  The work includes the study of the lectures (videos), the memorization work (vocabulary, declension, conjugation and grammar rules) and the written work (exercises).

Once this course is completed, the logical step is to sign up for Latin I, Third Quarter.  Be aware that Henle, Latin First Year is covered in Latin I and Latin II.  Latin II is already available and Latin III as well.

This course if taken seriously will give you a very solid foundation in the language of Caesar and Cicero.  And it might actually fulfill some homeschooling requirement for High School foreign language credits.

Bonam Fortunam! (Good Luck!)

Language Instructor

I am a French-speaking Swiss native born in Lausanne. After completing my primary and secondary education in the homeland, I moved to Southern California for college. I attended Cal Poly Pomona and got hired at Loyola High School after graduation. I have been working at this college prep school since 1998 as a French and Latin instructor.

A little bit over ten years ago, we started homeschooling our children and I quickly became aware of the need for Latin instructors in this field. I began teaching children who are homeschooled and had a great time doing this in person. Due to professional schedule changes I have had to consider new avenue to teach my homeschoolers. That is why I am now on Udemy.

Learning a language not only open possibilities to engage with people from different parts of the world but it also open one's mind like not many other experiences.

I hope you enjoy my classes.
