If you have an interest in Latin or if you need to learn it as a requirement at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Varsity Tutors can help you find the Las Vegas Latin lessons that suit your needs. Learning a new language is never easy, but Latin is particularly difficult since it isn't spoken as an official language anywhere outside of Vatican City. There are schools such as Centennial High School and Rancho High School that may offer courses in Latin, but a lot of students need additional help and resources to better understand this language.

Despite being a 'dead language', Latin is one of the most influential languages in the world. The oldest examples of written Latin date back to around the 6th Century B.C. and the language was spoken through the Middle Ages and into the early modern period. It is also the precursor to the Romance languages Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Romanian. Even English has been heavily influenced by Latin, particularly in its vocabulary. Learning how to speak Latin is endlessly useful if you want to better understand any of the Romance languages, and Latin roots continue to serve as a major source for the derivation of new terms in the sciences and technologies. In short, Latin is far more alive than one might think a "dead" language should be.

Varsity Tutors can set you up with two different types of Las Vegas Latin lessons. The first is an online Latin course that will allow you to connect with qualified instructors and fellow students, and the second is private instruction from a Las Vegas Latin tutor, either online or in person. We can help you get started with either option quickly - sometimes within 24 hours - on a schedule that works best for you. Each type of lesson offers its own benefits, and you will always learn from qualified and vetted instructors.

What Are Some of the Topics that are Reviewed During Las Vegas Latin Lessons?

Latin has survived in some form since before the Roman Empire, so there is a lot of history and material that needs to be covered. The language was first encountered in the region of Latium, which is where Rome is today. Sometime after the ancient Romans began to develop their own literature, Latin was divided into classical Latin and vulgar Latin. Classical Latin is the more formal written form and was considered to be more elegant, while vulgar Latin is the more popular spoken form of the language. It differed from classical Latin in its use of prepositions, its greater regularity of word order, and its vocabulary. It is vulgar Latin that provided the basis of the Romance languages.

As interesting as the history of Latin is, it can be difficult to cover all of that material in a college or high school course, which is why so many students seek out Las Vegas Latin lessons on their own. Along with the history of the Latin language and why it is still important today, instructors will also cover vocabulary, adjectives, pronunciation, and anything else that would be necessary for learning a new language. Like the Romance languages that derived from it, Latin also has gendered nouns, which will need to be covered for those who aren't used to that rule.

One of the biggest hurdles in learning how to speak Latin is finding the opportunities to speak. Immersion is the best way to learn a new language, and it's hard to immerse yourself in a language that almost nobody speaks. Fortunately, immersion is one of the most important factors of any Las Vegas Latin lessons. Online classes allow you to converse with students and instructors. This will allow students to hear Latin words in their proper context, which can make the language that much easier to learn. You also won't have to worry too much about how to pronounce certain words since we don't know what an "authentic" Latin accent sounds like.

How Do Las Vegas Latin Lessons Work?

The two types of Las Vegas Latin lessons that Varsity Tutors can help you find are online courses and private lessons with a Las Vegas Latin tutor. The online courses allow you to interact with students and instructors and engage in learning activities and conversation. Courses are available in two-week or four-week sections, with new sections beginning every month. Since these courses are offered online, you can enroll in them and attend from anywhere you have a reliable Internet connection. You can attend sessions from the comfort of your own home without having to make a commute to a physical school. You can also choose when your sessions will be so you can work around a busy schedule. Even though one of the main goals of the online Latin courses is to immerse you in the language and converse with fellow students, you can always speak with an instructor if you need any one-on-one help.

If you are the type of student who would rather take private lessons, we can help you find a reliable Las Vegas Latin tutor. These highly trained private instructors can meet with you either online or in person and provide you lessons that are geared toward your strengths and the areas where you need improvement. As with the group classes, the schedule for these private lessons can be as flexible as you need them to be. As long as the instructor is providing you with the tools that you need to succeed in your studies, they will find a schedule and solution that works best for you.
