Middle School Latin II
Middle School Latin 2 covers the same material as the second semester of the Latin 1 class in the high school program - chapters 9-16 of the Oxford Latin Course Part 1. This includes more extensive use of cases, subordinate clauses, relative pronouns (nominative case only), demonstrative pronouns, and the irregular verbs volō and nōlō. Classes meet for one and a half hours a week with approximately 30 minutes per day of homework.
"My daughter is really enjoying languages this year. I think the Latin has given her confidence and curiosity. I really want to thank you for the work you put into teaching. The class this year is so well organized, your communication with parents is great, and my daughter is really enjoying it." - Jenny L., California
