No matter if you are looking to learn Latin as a new hobby, are studying Latin at the University of North Florida, or you are a high school student at Stanton College Preparatory, we can set you up in a class that can address your needs. It can be difficult to know where to begin when taking up a language, especially if you have little experience in learning a new language. Furthermore, a traditional classroom may not be the best way for you to do it. Being successful in learning Latin requires plenty of opportunities to speak and write the language. With a Jacksonville Latin course, you will be given these opportunities in a language learning environment along with a Latin instructor who has the right skills to help you make progress quickly.

The Latin language began in central Italy where Rome is located. Latin Influenced the Romance languages, which are Italian, French, Romanian, Spanish, and Portuguese. Some division in the Latin language began when literature was being developed in Rome. The two types were called Classical and Vulgar Latin. Classical Latin was much more formal and elegant than Vulgar Latin. Classical Latin was also greatly influenced by the grammar, vocabulary, and style of the Greek language. Vulgar Latin was the popular spoken form of the language. Vulgar Latin was the form that inspired the Romance languages. It was spoken by many colonists and soldiers in the Roman Empire. The two forms of Latin differed because Vulgar Latin uses more prepositions, fewer infections, and has greater regularity of word order.

Latin is considered a dead language. This means that Latin is no longer represents a society's spoken language. Latin was a living language during the Middle Ages and into the Early Middle period. There were attempts made to save the language in the 17th century, but because vernacular languages were rising in popularity, these attempts failed. Examples of vernacular languages are French, Italian, and English. These languages already had their own classical forms. Latin was used less and less as society changed. Vernacular languages had fully taken over during the 19th century. Latin is survived by The Roman Catholic Church and Vatican City. Latin is the official form of communication in the Catholic Church and the official language of Vatican City.

The Latin alphabet is still used, even though Latin is considered dead. Languages like English still use the Roman alphabet. The Roman alphabet originally only had 23 letters. Letters v, w, and j were added on during the Middle Ages. There are still many advantages to studying Latin. The language is still used in legal studies, theology, medicine, and scientific research. If you have a career in these fields or are looking to have one someday, Latin could be helpful to know. Latin is also a great language to learn if you want to pursue different languages in the future, as many other languages are rooted in Latin. Taking a Jacksonville Latin course could help you take advantage of what the language has to offer.

What will a Jacksonville course go over?

All languages have concepts that can be hard to grasp. A Jacksonville Latin course could help you learn more easily. Many Latin learners find pronouncing words easy, as many English words originate from Latin. In fact, some English words are almost identical to Latin words. For example, the Latin word for desire is "desidero," the Latin word for finish is "finis," and the Latin word for persuade is "persuadeo." A topic that can be hard to understand is inflection. The end of words, or the inflections, are necessary for understanding how words go together to form sentences in Latin. This can be hard to understand because in English sentence order is used to understand the meaning. For example, "The cats are chasing the mice" means something completely different than "The mice are chasing the cats." When learning the meaning of a sentence in Latin, you must look to the ends of words. Some other topics within the class are reading Latin, common phrases, Latin History, grammar and sentence structure, and much more. In a Jacksonville Latin class, you will be given plenty of chances to practice these concepts.
