If you are seeking some additional assistance in learning Latin, Varsity Tutors can help you sign up for Boston Latin lessons and private tutoring. Whether you are learning Latin for your language requirement at an area institution such as Match Charter Public School or Boston College, you are looking for more comprehension for your career, or you are interested in the language to help you learn more intricate languages down the line, we can set you up with the right resource to address your needs. Learning a new language can present a new set of challenges, and having extra opportunities to practice can be very beneficial in you reaching for your language goals.

Latin is the base for many of the Romance languages, such as French and Italian, and having a strong grasp of this language can assist you in learning other Romance languages down the line. This language was divided into Classical Latin and Vulgar Latin at the beginning of the Roman Empire, with Vulgar Latin being the more popular spoken form. Though this language is referred to as a "dead" language, it is still used often in the legal, scientific, medical, and other fields. In fact, Latin roots are continuously used for the derivation of new terms in the sciences. Latin is also the official language of Vatican City and the Roman Catholic Church.

Regardless of your current proficiency level, whether you are starting with the basics at East Boston High School or are into more advanced Latin courses at Harvard University, we can find the best fit for your needs and goals. Both online classes and working with a Boston Latin tutor will give you the ability to practice your language skills more often. Each option offers its own set of unique benefits, and you may even find that a combination of both is the right fit for you. Whichever you choose, you can be sure you will learn from a highly qualified and helpful instructor.

What type of language concepts could be covered during Boston Latin lessons?

Since Latin is considered a "dead" language, there is more flexibility with the accent, though getting the pronunciation consistent will take some practice and patience. The ability to pronounce Latin consistently should ultimately allow you to read, speak, and appreciate the flow of the language more quickly. Latin vocabulary is another concept to focus on, even though there are many English words that originated from Latin and are very close to the English form of the word, you will still have a lot to memorize. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges while learning this language will be the inflections. In Latin, the endings of words are what are used to understand the meaning of a sentence, as opposed to the order in which the words are placed.

Latin uses gendered nouns, but aside from the commonly used masculine and feminine forms, there is also a third gender called neuter. Adjectives in Latin agree with the noun they describe in gender and number. Verbs in Latin rely on their endings to show who is carrying out an action and they typically do not require the use of a pronoun. You will find often in Latin that word endings are very important in the understanding of a sentence.

Adequate practice will be important as you work on your language fluency and you may want more opportunities to practice than you are given in a typical classroom time frame. This is where these convenient Boston Latin lessons can help. Regular exposure to the language you are learning can help increase your retention of concepts and give you the confidence you need to use Latin comfortably when needed.

How do the different types of Boston Latin lessons work?

It can seem daunting to add language practice into a schedule that is already busy with full-time school or work, family activities, or extracurriculars. However, with the different flexible options of Boston Latin lessons, you will be sure to find the right fit for your life. We have options for online classes and online or in-person tutoring. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of each type of lesson.

Latin courses are held in a virtual classroom that is fully interactive. You will have the opportunity to join in group activities and conversational practice, all while getting beneficial instruction and feedback from an experienced instructor. If you find yourself needing additional clarification on a concept, you will have the ability to reserve one-on-one time with your instructor. The convenience of these courses being online means you will not have to fit an extra commute into your already busy day. New courses start monthly, and you have the option of either a two- or four-week session. These courses are also held at a variety of times, so whether you are looking for an evening class, a weekend class, or even one to fit into your lunch hour, you can find the one that best matches your needs.

If you feel you would prefer a more individualized lesson plan, a Boston Latin tutor may be the right option for you. When you study one-on-one with an instructor, you have to ability to focus solely on your goals. You also have the opportunity to take as much time as you need to focus on any concepts of Latin that you find especially difficult to master. If you choose a private instructor you have the option of meeting online or in person. Should you choose convenient online sessions, you will meet with your instructor on our Live Learning Platform and use video chat and a virtual whiteboard to practice your language skills. If you would prefer to meet your instructor in person, you can arrange for sessions at your home, a nearby library, or any other favorite study spot.
