Latin 1: Basic, self-taught
Cost: $25.00

This study of Latin doesn't just teach the basics of Latin grammar and vocabulary, but is also a fascinating lesson in the history and anthropology of the everyday life of the Roman home. An extensive vocabulary is integrated into 15 weeks of lessons, and "The English Connection" section gives the student work in identifying Latin roots of English words. The text includes English-Latin and Latin-English glossaries. The website also has a pronunciation feature for students working on their own.

In this course, you will learn basic Latin grammar and syntax: noun declensions and case (the uses of nouns in a sentence); present tense of verbs; subject-verb and noun-adjective agreement; prepositional phrases; adverbs; and pronouns. Latin vocabulary and phrases will need to be learned in order to read and translate short Latin passages. The vocabulary and passages are related to ancient Roman daily life and stories. Students will practice vocabulary, grammar, and syntax by completing grammatical exercises, composing short Latin sentences, and taking quizzes and tests.

Latin 2: Premier
Cost: $230.00

This is the second of three consecutive classes which are the equivalent of two years of high school Latin. The three courses are suitable for middle school students with no previous exposure to Latin. Classes are held twice weekly, for one hour per class. Students will study Ann Myers' text -- a fun, accessible introduction to the language, which approaches classical Latin by taking the student on a tour of a Roman home. The student will learn the names for rooms and household items just like he would if he was going to live with a Roman family.

In Latin 2 students will continue to learn Latin grammar and syntax: verb conjugation in all six tenses; active and passive voice of verbs; subordinate clauses; uses of the ablative case; present and past participles. Composition of Latin sentences and translation skills will be more heavily emphasized than they were in Latin I. The vocabulary learned will pertain to Roman government, law, and life in Republican times. Students will practice vocabulary, grammar, and syntax by completing grammatical exercises, composing short Latin sentences, and taking quizzes and tests. The course is taught live on the Web-4m conferencing system.

Latin 3: Premier
Cost: $230.00

People who study Latin often score higher on the language based parts of standardized tests. Latin is in a sense the "mother" of our mother tongue, Engish; and the study of Latin affords an excellent introduction to language studies in general. A basic knowledge of Latin equips the student in a broad way, teaching him the roots of a whole host of English words, providing a sound understanding of the workings of grammar, and bolstering vocabulary and spelling skills like few other studies can. Perhaps more important still, Latin has been the language of the Church for centuries, and of the Roman empire before it. Because of this, the study of Latin richly benefits the student who hopes to pursue theological or classical studies; and it offers to all students a deeper understanding of our Western heritage.

Students will wrap up their study of Latin grammar with some advanced grammatical concepts: the subjunctive mood and its applications; gerunds and gerundives; and the ablative absolute. Exercises and Latin composition will provide practice of these concepts. Thereafter in the course the focus will be in reading excerpts from original Latin texts, in particular Caesar and Cicero. Students will need to apply their knowledge of Latin grammar and syntax for literal translation of these excerpts. Quizzes and tests will serve to evaluate students' progress with the language. The three Latin courses are the equivalent of two years of high school Latin.

Biblical Greek 1: Premier

Students may elect to take New Testament Greek I, II, III as an alternative to Latin I, II, III. These are "pass-through" courses to the Arete On-line Academy of Mr. John Schwandt, the author and director of the National Biblical Greek Exam. Mr. Schwandt teaches two live On-line Greek tutorials for the Areté On-line Academy. Throughout the academic year, these tutorials meet once a week for a live two hour session. In the beginning course, students work through the Reviving Biblical Greek curriculum, which emphasizes conversational skills, and they work through many chapters in Machen's text, which emphasizes composition. The intermediate course is more of a directed reading group, which translates a gospel and two epistles each year. Both programs utilize an On-line forum for mutual assistance and encouragement.
