If you've ever thought about studying Latin, consider an Atlanta Latin course provided by Varsity Tutors. This course is ideal for high school students at North Atlanta High School or Westlake High School who may want to prepare for higher education. We also welcome students at the college level and beyond, so feel free to come and join us if you attend a local college such as Georgia State University. Whenever you learn a new language, it's helpful to be able to practice and communicate with others. This is precisely what Latin courses can provide you with, along with an expert instructor who can assist you with any difficulties that you may encounter.

There's a rich history behind Latin, which makes the language all the more interesting. It is believed to have emerged in a region of central Italy known as Latium. By the time the Roman Empire formed, it had split into two different forms, known as Vulgar Latin and Classical Latin. Vulgar Latin was the form that was spoken among the people, spread throughout the Roman Empire, and which eventually gave rise to our modern Romance languages. On the other hand, Classical Latin was more formal and drew influences from Greek. Although there were attempts to revive Classical Latin, it eventually lost its influence over the centuries. The language is still spoken in Vatican City and is used for communication in the Roman Catholic Church.

Latin is sometimes referred to as a dead language, but it remains very much alive in fields such as medicine, science, and law. If you plan on going into a field that uses Latin, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the language. It's also useful to have an understanding of Latin if you want to learn any of the Romance languages such as Italian, Spanish, or French. This is because Romance Languages are descended from Latin. Studying Latin can help you get a better sense of the context in which these languages evolved. Whether you are an adult with years of experience or a high school freshman, these courses can help you broaden your perspective on the world and strengthen your grasp on history.

What topics can I study in an Atlanta Latin course?

Learning any new language is a challenge. However, with a lot of persistence and practice, you'll eventually start to get the hang of it. Since Latin has some similarities to English, you'll find that some Latin words are easily recognizable. When you study Latin, you will encounter a variety of topics, such as pronunciation, inflection, vocabulary, and history.

Although Latin pronunciation is relatively straightforward, it can take some time for beginners to get used to it. Your instructor can help clarify the principles of Latin pronunciation and resolve any difficulties that you may be having. One convenient feature of Latin pronunciation is that you don't have to worry about picking up an accent since it is no longer widely spoken.

You may also review inflections. In Latin, the endings of words are inflected, and you must be able to comprehend these endings in order to understand the meaning. Since we don't use inflected forms in English so much as we use rigid word order, this topic can be tricky to master when you're first starting out. Your instructor might walk you through this concept, use it in different examples, or apply it in conversational practice.

Vocabulary is yet another topic that you might review in an Atlanta Latin course. In Latin, nouns are categorized by gender, in much the same way that Romance languages like Spanish and French are structured. This can be a bit confusing to beginners, but you'll eventually become accustomed to it with enough practice.

Your instructor may also teach you about the vibrant history that surrounds the Latin language. This is a fun topic because you'll be able to apply the language within a historical and cultural context. Your instructor may introduce you to Latin literature and the history that goes along with it.

How can an Atlanta Latin course help me?

When you sign up for courses, you'll be able to collaborate with other students and discuss topics in Latin. Collaboration is a great learning method because it allows students to exchange ideas and help each other out. It has actually been shown that collaboration gives students a better understanding of the material. Furthermore, you'll be guided by a highly trained instructor who can help you out if there's something that you don't fully understand. For example, if you're struggling with a certain grammatical construction or you need help with pronunciation, your instructor can work to assist you. They might give you some helpful study tips or work through the issues with you to help resolve them. Keep in mind that you can schedule one-on-one time with your instructor to go over any issues that you might be having a difficult time with. This is also convenient if you just want some individualized instruction.

Classes have been designed to be as convenient as possible. When you first enroll in an Atlanta Latin class, you'll be able to pick between a two-week class and a four-week class. Also, don't forget that classes take place in multiple sections, with new sections beginning monthly. One great thing about classes is that they are based entirely online. Think about what this means. It means that you won't even have to get out of the house to participate in your class. You can engage in the class in much the same way that you'd be able to in a traditional classroom setting without even having to worry about getting out into traffic. It couldn't get much more convenient than that!
