Varsity Tutors can enroll you in Jacksonville Latin lessons that can improve your comprehension of Latin. Whether you're a student at Stanton College Preparatory studying Latin for the first time, an undergraduate at the University of North Florida majoring in law, attending another area school, or someone wanting to learn how Latin has evolved, we can set you up with language lessons to help you build your skills. To better understand legal and medical terms and theology, students sometimes study Latin because it's the basis for the vocabulary of these topics even though Latin isn't spoken much anymore. If you're studying a Romance language like Italian or Spanish, you'll find it helpful to know Latin, too. Studying a new language in a regular classroom has its difficulties, so sometimes searching for additional resources outside of class is one way to improve your foreign language skills and get the help you need.

While the Roman Catholic Church uses Latin for communication and it's the official language of Vatican City, Latin is considered a "dead" language. At the beginning of the Roman Empire, the Latin language evolved into two versions: Classical and Vulgar. While the Greeks influenced Classical Latin, the colonists and soldiers of the Roman Empire influenced Vulgar Latin. Modern Romance languages like French and Portuguese came from Vulgar Latin. As society changed, languages did as well, and even though Latin made it through the Middle Ages and the early modern period, the need for it declined.

Varsity Tutors can help you with options for Jacksonville Latin lessons such as private instruction and live courses whether you're struggling with difficult concepts while learning Latin or you're studying pre-med and wanting to understand medical terms. We can connect you with a Jacksonville Latin tutor within a day from your enrollment, or we can set you up in online Latin courses. Another option is to take advantage of both courses and private instruction at the same time. With all of the options, you have the choice to pick out whatever might work best for you.

What are some of the skills an instructor might cover during Jacksonville Latin lessons?

When you study Latin, you won't have to develop an authentic accent like Romanian, Italian, or French. If you practice and are patient as you learn Latin, most students find they can master it at a faster pace. Since Latin came before the Romance languages, many English words originated from it. For example, English uses the term "adolescent" while the Latin word is "adulescens." English speakers don't use inflections very often, but Latin does. Inflections help you understand how words relate to each other and help us figure out the meaning of a sentence.

When you can't get enough practice with a language in a regular classroom, you look for other ways to practice. Even though Latin isn't spoken much anymore, you can still gain skills in the language to enjoy Latin prose and poetry, to read Latin at a quicker rate, and to master vocabulary. Your Jacksonville Latin lessons instructor can help you drill on any of these areas for comprehension and retention.

Connecting with a Jacksonville Latin tutor is another option for those students who may prefer one-on-one instruction. A private instructor can help you by explaining concepts in ways that are easier for you to understand based on your learning tendencies, whether it's reading through Latin prose or understanding the nuances of Latin grammar rules. A Latin instructor can gear your lessons more toward your auditory, visual, or kinesthetic preferences to help you grasp concepts more quickly, and they can move through material at a pace that is comfortable for you. You can also practice using activities you find engaging, like listening to some Latin poetry or prose and then translating what the narrator is saying.

How do the two types of Jacksonville Latin lessons work?

If you're juggling a job, family obligations, or school, studying Latin might be hard to find time for. However, you can easily fit a Jacksonville Latin lesson into your busy schedule. You'll meet with other students and your instructor in a secure, online class, which is like a regular classroom. Your experienced Latin instructor will give you feedback as you and the other students chat and practice your Latin skills. For a group class, Varsity Tutors can set you up and get you going quickly. New classes begin monthly and are offered at various times of the day. You can opt to take a two-week session or a four-week session. You can sign up for a section that's a good fit for your busy schedule.

Working one-on-one with an instructor gives you a more personalized experience in studying Latin. We can connect you with a Jacksonville Latin tutor in as little as a day. You can choose to meet your instructor either online for virtual face to face sessions or get together in the same place. If you choose the online option, you'll attend your sessions on our Live Learning Platform from wherever you want making it more convenient for you. You'll have the full attention of your Latin instructor, and they can teach you over a face to face video chat and share the virtual whiteboard with you to jot down ideas. Meeting your instructor in person can happen at your house or a public place such as a coffee shop.
