Lingua Latina Prima
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.
Students will spend about 1-2 hours each week completing the Picta Dicta work outside of class.
