Transcript

  • 1. Learn Classical Latin step by step with Judith Meyer
    • „ Latin doesn't have to be scary!“
  • 2. About me
    • native German; fluent in English
    • learned Latin at the age of 12
    • started teaching Latin (locally) at the age of 17
    • involved in first-time translations
    • started teaching Latin online at the age of
    • author of two Latin courses and this comprehensive program
  • 3. About the program
    • 3 levels of 12 lessons each
    • Each lesson takes 45-60 minutes to teach and approximately 2 hours of after-class time.
    • The third level already consists of authentic, non-simplified excerpts of Roman literature from all the well-known authors. Total time to reach this level: 24 class hours Sounds too good to be true? - Contact my past students!
  • 4. The Levels
    • Level 1 (101 classes): Discover the basic structure of Latin. Learn the most common declensions, the imperfect past, present and future tense and a basic vocabulary.
    • Level 2 (201 classes): Expand your vocabulary and become able to recognize almost any grammatical form you will ever see. Meanwhile we'll read interesting texts on Roman legends.
    • Level 3 (301 classes): Embark on a journey through Roman literature. Each lesson is about a different well-known author.
  • 5. Classical Latin, Church Latin, Neo-Latin, Pig Latin?
    • Latin was spoken by Romans, conquered nations, anybody who wanted to become wealthy... => Classical Latin & Vulgar Latin
    • ... and later the church, scientists and the educated even up into the early 20 th century!
    • Latin changed over the years, like any language, and it acquired new words and new ways of saying things. People speaking Latin today had to adapt the language a lot. It's referred to as Neo-Latin.
  • 6. Introduction to Classical Latin
    • Classical Latin is the written language used during the Golden Age of Latin literature, approximately 1 st century BC to 1 st century AD
    • Knowledge of Classical Latin will allow you to read the great works of literature of that time and gain unique insights into a very different world
    • Knowledge of Classical Latin can be the basis for learning Church Latin, Medieval Latin or Neo-Latin
  • 7. What to Expect of Latin
    • a language quite far from the modern Romance languages, because it's separated by 2000 years mater > ES: madre > FR: mère = mother
    • a language that will help you understand English better and improve your vocabulary mater > maternal = related to the mother
    • a language that will help you have an easier time learning other European languages
    • a very logical language with very few exceptions
  • 8. What to Expect of Latin
    • ride-t = laugh-he = he laughs ride-ba-t = laugh-past-he = he laughed ride-bi-t = laugh-future-he = he will laugh
    • ride-s = you laugh … ride-ba-s? ride-bi-s?
    • da-ba-t = he gave … da-bi-t? da-t? da-s?
    • sede-mus = we sit … sede-ba-mus? sede-ba-t? sede-bi-t? sede-s?
    • voca-t = he calls voca-tur = he is called voca-ba-tur, voca-bi-tur … a construction kit
  • 9. What to Expect of Latin
    • NOT child's play
    • I can't get rid of the declensions, but I can ease you into them, so that you will know them before you're aware of it!
  • 10. Each lesson...
    • an overview of what we'll study
    • a review of the previous lesson's text
    • a new grammar point, including an exercise
    • a new text, up to 3 slides
    • a list of vocabulary, also available as Anki file
