About the course

The National Latin Exam (NLE) is an international exam administered online during the second week of March (March 8-12, 2021). It provides students an opportunity to learn more about Roman culture, as it covers not only Latin grammar, but also geography, history, culture, mythology, grammar and Latin sayings still in use today. It is 45 minutes long with 40 multiple-choice questions, about half of which are related to grammar/translating and the other half relating to Roman culture, geography, derivatives, etc. This eight week course is a wonderful supplement to any Latin course, and students from any course or textbook are welcome to participate.

This course will also ensure students are signed up for the NLE, and will mail out awards and certificates at the end of the school year.

Since the NLE is not based on any particular Latin curriculum, the NLE should NOT be considered an evaluation of how well the students are doing in their regular Latin course.

Course Objectives:

  1. To prepare for the National Latin Exam, and to enjoy learning more about the Roman world, as well as its influence on our language today.
