Middle School Latin III
Middle School Latin 3 is a transition course to prepare younger students to enter CLRC's high school level Latin 2 course the following year. The class covers the same material as the first semester of Latin 2 in the high school program —chapters 17-24 of the Oxford Latin Course Part 2. Students are introduced to the imperfect, perfect, and pluperfect tenses, expressions of time and place, the fourth and fifth declensions, comparative and superlative adjectives, and many new case usages. Intermediate Latin 3 can also be a beginning point for students who have had some experience with Latin but may not be quite ready to jump into the faster pace of the full high-school level Latin 2 class.
Fall 2020 Registration for this Course Opens on February 27.
Fall enrollment is closed. Students may be able to enroll with the instructor’s permission. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Spring registration opens Oct 18th.
