Introduction to Latin for New Latin Teachers

Picta Dicta Latin Primer: Two-Week Online Summer Seminar

Do you plan on teaching Latin using Picta Dicta Latin Primer? Whether you are a teacher about to start teaching Latin this fall, a curious homeschool parent, or a headmaster interested in using Picta Dicta at your school, this is the course for you.

Over two weeks this summer, we will walk you through the fundamentals of Latin as presented in the opening lessons of Picta Dicta Latin Primer. You will gain familiarity with this incredible language-learning platform, while also learning the Nominative, Accusative, Genitive, Dative, and Ablative Cases; the Masculine and Neuter Gender; Verbs in the 3rd Person; and lots of Latin vocabulary! You will be well equipped to continue your Latin studies on your own using Picta Dicta Latin Primer.

Picta Dicta Latin Primer makes learning Latin fun and intuitive, and this will be a low-pressure, interactive seminar focused on introducing you to the basics of the Latin language while having lots of fun along the way. This seminar will be limited to 12 participants to preserve a friendly, collegial atmosphere.

Timing Doesn't Work for You? Prefer a One-on-One Class?

If the dates and times conflict with your schedule, or if you would prefer to meet with an ALI Latin Fellow on a one-to-one basis rather than in a group setting, you can consider applying for a four-session tutorial instead. We have a limited amount of availability for these tutorials, so we cannot guarantee placement.
