Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

This session, we worked on preparing for the student's upcoming exam, which will be translating an excerpt of a prepared passage. He has been working on his own on memorizing the English translation of the passage, but I wanted him to work on developing more of an understanding of the Latin itself, so he won't be stuck if he forgets what he's memorized, and can instead build from what the text itself says. So, with a clean copy of the passage, we worked through the sentences, and I picked up on the various smaller function words that he often left out in his translation, trying to make sure he doesn't ignore things like adverbs, conjunctions, and relative pronouns. After we went through the whole passage, doing spot coverage of some grammatical principles, we went back over a couple of the paragraphs again. By the end he was doing much better, and I hope noticing all of the words on the page rather than focusing internally on the translation he has memorized.

In our session, I introduced the Latin words for household items like table, chairs, couch, etc. We reviewed the household item flashcards I brought and the boy student enjoyed looking at the Spanish as well as the Latin since both were listed on this set of flashcards. He and I talked about the similarities between Latin and Spanish (e.g. la mesa and Mensa, -ae, f. "table") and I explained that Spanish is derived from Latin so it is not surprising that these languages are so similar to each other. Then each child made their own set of flashcards, drawing a picture of a household item and writing the corresponding Latin word on the front of each card. I instructed them to take these flashcards and post them on items around their house. This is a great way to learn the Latin and get in some everyday practice. The girl student said this exercise was "very fun" and told me all about the different items she was going to label with the flashcards.

Although Latin is no longer a spoken language, knowledge of Latin is still highly recommended for those entering technical, medical, and academic fields--such as medicine and the law—where Latin serves as the basis of much specialized vocabulary. As your Latin tutor will explain, a familiarity with Latin before entering such fields is incredible advantage, as your knowledge of Latin roots will help you memorize new terms more quickly, freeing up time for other aspects of your studies. Additionally, for those entering academia, a solid understanding of Latin provides insight into many modern languages, enriches your vocabulary, and sharpens your writing skills.

While the benefits of studying Latin seem obvious, the language itself can seem fairly difficult. As noted, Latin—unlike languages such as French, German, and Spanish—is no longer a spoken language, so certain foreign language learning aides (such as immersion in the language by studying abroad) aren’t an option. Also, Latin’s conjugation and declension systems can be fairly intimidating to beginning students, particularly to native speakers of English. In both cases, an experienced Latin tutor from Varsity Tutors is an invaluable resource. Our tutors understand the special challenges of learning Latin and will guide you through the process—from vocabulary, to grammar, to composition—ensuring that any trouble areas are addressed quickly. With the help of a Varsity Tutors Latin tutor, you can enjoy the process of learning this invaluable language, as well as open up a world of exciting academic and professional possibilities.
