About the course

This class will teach Timothy Griffith’s innovative Picta Dicta curriculum, using both the online platform and accompanying text book, Latin Primer. This class will focus on learning the basic grammar and logic of Latin by it in the context of pictures and stories. Translation will be used minimally, as the goal is to get the student to understand the Latin through itself.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn Latin vocabulary through pictures & stories
  2. Learn Latin grammar by seeing the patterns and using it in the context of pictures & stories
  3. Learn to compose Latin sentences, both written and spoken
  4. Learn to read Latin without needing to translate into English
