Whether you are interested in Classical or Ecclesiastical Latin writers, the first steps are the same. In this course you will be introduced to the core of Latin grammar and vocabulary – we will also read over one hundred pages of Latin along the way! If you want to learn how to read Latin as a language, as opposed to a clunky form of English in need of decoding, this course is for you! After completing Latin 101, students will move on to Beginner Latin II (L102), which will prepare them for our Intermediate sequence.

  • Cost: $850 
  • Course Details:
    • Sessions last 1.5 hours
    • 1 session per week
    • Course lasts 14 weeks
    • Begins week of May 5th

In this course you will continue the grammatical and vocabulary work you began in Beginner Latin I (Latin 101). You will continue reading Familia Romana and Colloquia Personarum, and you will also continue to work through our digital interactive textbook. By the end of these books, you will have learned the entirety of the Latin grammatical system, over 1,800 Latin vocabulary words, and learned how to read, speak, and understand Latin as its own language – rather than as a code that needs translating into English first.

Are you ready to super-charge your Latin reading and speaking abilities? In the Intermediate sequence, we will finish reading Lingua Latina: Familia Romana, which includes selections from multiple ancient Roman poets. Then, we’ll plunge into the last section of Genesis : “the epic of Joseph.” This is the story of Jacob’s son, Joseph, who is sold into slavery in Egypt and eventually rises to power in the court of the Pharaoh. After completing Latin 201, students will move on to Latin 202, which will prepare them for our Advanced sequence.

From Anchises clinging to his son Aeneas as they escape burning Troy to the she-wolf nursing Romulus and Remus by the bank of the River Tiber, this early-advanced course will cover the mythical origins of the Eternal City. We will be reading excerpts from Hans Oerberg’s Roma Aeterna, Virgil’s Aeneid, and Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita. After L202, students will move into L301: Ovidii Metamorphoses.

Publius Ovidius Naso, or Ovid, was one of the greatest poets writing during the Golden Age of Roman poetry, and the Metamorphoses is his masterpiece. In this massive, epic-like poem, Ovid narrates, in dactylic hexameter, the history of the world from its creation to the apotheosis of Julius Caesar, all through various mythological stories of transformation. In this course, we will be reading a few of these stories and discussing them in Latin.

It’s Cicero time! For the medieval West, there was perhaps no ancient work on friendship more influential than Marcus Tullius Cicero’s work De Amicitia. In it, that master of Roman oratory and philosophy, Cicero, stages a dialogue in which Gaius Laelius mourns his recently deceased friend, Scipio Africanus, and supposedly, Laelius’ sentiments reflect the actual thoughts of the historical Scipio Africanus. But Cicero’s interest in friendship is of course not just historical or theoretical; his famous friendship with Titus Pomponius Atticus is attested by his many extant letters to Atticus, to whom De Amicitia is dedicated.

Looking for ALI’s Latin for Kids programs? 

We run three separate Latin tracks for younger students: for elementarymiddle, and high school students. Perfect for homeschool families, “flex” classical schools, and anyone looking for tutoring or enrichment for their young student.

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

We are going to get you reading, listening to, and speaking in Latin over the course of five weeks of intense study.

Of all the challenges of a seminary Ph.D. program, the language competency exam made me the most apprehensive. I told Jonathan about my concerns and described what I thought I needed, individual tutoring adapted to my pace and lots of opportunities to ask questions. He designed a study course structure to meet my needs and talked me through each step of the learning process. I highly recommend his tutoring. Oh, and I passed my Latin competency exam! Thanks, Jonathan!
