How does Latin Language Learning work?
The Time4Languages online Latin course features award-winning language learning homeschool content powered by Rosetta Stone® and is made up of 3 levels, each consisting of 4 units.
Students will start with the fundamentals and learn basic conversation skills such as greetings, introductions, and simple questions and answers. From there, they’ll move on to interactions where they’ll be able to share ideas and opinions, express feelings, and discuss interests and current events.
Imagine if your child could read classical literature or historical documents and fully understood not only the literal translation, but the exact context. Once your child has grasped Latin, he or she will be able to start adding additional languages to their academics and become citizens of the world. Many Latin students eventually learn multiple foreign languages because they pick them up so easily.
Core Lessons will teach students Latin. Every unit includes 4 Core Lessons. For students who have some understanding of the Latin language, they can use the Core Lesson within each unit as a method of gauging where they should begin.
The Focused Activities within the Time4Languages online Latin course focus on speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and listening.
Every activity within the course is graded and each unit ends with a conversational Milestone that will help students gain confidence by reviewing what they’ve learned through a simulated conversation in Latin.
Student-paced, Interactive, and Fun Latin Language Learning!
The engaging Latin language course is both fun and effective. Students are able to interact with the course by speaking into a microphone (either built in on the computer or purchased separately) to ensure that their pronunciation is correct.
For more detailed practice, students can access the Speech Analysis screen. This tool allows students to improve their pronunciation by recording and playing back their own voice in order to compare it with a native Latin speaker.
Students have the option of pausing a lesson, repeating activities as often as needed, as well as skipping around and working in a different order. Keep in mind that it is recommended that students follow the suggested sequence since the material is created to build upon itself.
You can also take Latin learning on the road. You and your family can go to museums and look for Latin inscriptions on artifacts and documents. Enhance your child’s love for Latin through history and create an entire lesson plan around Latin through the ages. This is a perfect way to encourage a love of language and a love of history.
For maximum benefits, it is recommended that students log into their Latin language course 3-5 times per week, for 20-30 minutes each day.
