Learn Latin through conversations

Latin may be considered a dead language by some, but it is still alive in so many ways! Due to the expanse and longevity of the Roman Empire, Latin influenced English as well as many of the other languages that influenced English years later. So, by choosing to study Latin, you’re not only connecting with texts that were written thousands of years ago, you’re also connecting with many of the modern languages we know and love today!

Grammar Notes

No interpretation is created equal. Grammar Notes, color-coding, and features that focus on specific grammatical nuances between target and source language strengthens your understanding of Latin language structure.

Culture Notes

Etiquette, body language, gestures — set the mood. Culture Notes provide a backdrop to learning material and let the Latin culture come alive, setting you up to forge deeper connections with Latin culture and make a positive impression.

Vocabulary

Critical thinking and memory-building exercises blend new vocabulary into lesson progress, allowing you to pick up on the structure of your target language so you can apply new content that will be presented in various contexts throughout the course.

Pronunciation
