If you'd' like help studying Latin, whether you're taking it as a class at either Central or Millard West High School, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, or studying it on your own, Varsity Tutors can help you thanks to Omaha Latin lessons. You can enroll in live online lessons in a class setting or opt to study with a private tutor. Either way, you'll gain access to an expert instructor who knows Latin and has the ability to teach students at your level.

Although Latin is the official language of Vatican City and the Roman Catholic Church, it's considered a dead language as there is no community that uses it as their main way to communicate. Throughout the ages, the language has morphed into the Romance languages (Spanish, French, Romanian, Italian, and Portuguese), even as Classical Latin went gradually out of common use.

For a dead language, there are a lot of people who still study Latin. It's useful in a number of fields like medicine, science of any kind, law, and religion. In addition, English speakers commonly study Latin prefixes, suffixes, and root words to understand vocabulary and more easily remember how to spell thousands of words. Many languages still use the Roman alphabet, including English, although we've added three letters: j, v, and w.

What topics are covered in Omaha Latin lessons?

In one way, the same things that are covered in any language class are also covered in Latin. You'll start with essential vocabulary and common phrases, and continue on to work on things like grammar, sentence structure, and pronunciation. You may spend time learning to read and write in Latin, as well as learning about the rich history and culture behind the ancient language.

There are a couple of aspects that you might like about studying Latin because they make the language easier to learn than many others. One is pronunciation. First, English has many words pronounced the same as in Latin. Second, there is no native community of Latin speakers for you to offend if your pronunciation is not absolutely perfect. This actually feeds the second reason Latin may not be too difficult, which is that we already speak a lot of words derived from Latin and it may seem much more familiar than languages like Russian, Chinese, or even French.

Of course you will have to work hard to build fluency, and there are some unique nuances to the language as well. One is the gendered nouns, which come not only in masculine and feminine, but in neuter gender, too. It's important you learn to make adjectives agree with the nouns in both gender and number. Latin grammar has some surprises, too, such as the general lack of pronouns. Instead, knowing who is doing what to whom is found in the endings of the verbs.

Whether you study with a private Omaha Latin tutor or in a virtual Latin class, these are the types of subjects you can expect to learn, along with others and the opportunity to practice conversation in a real-world setting.

Should I sign up for a private Latin tutor or a class?

There's no one answer to this question, because each student will make the choice of which one works best for them. You may even opt to take advantage of both services. Following are some things you can consider about each option.

A virtual classroom is led by an instructor and virtually attended by a number of students. It's very similar to a regular classroom experience. You'll be able to connect with both your instructor and fellow students during the class. You can bounce ideas off one another during lessons and make suggestions to help each other.

For example, if you're finding it hard to memorize verb endings because the method of memorization you use doesn't fit you, another student or the instructor may suggest a different technique that solves the problem. If this type of collaborative atmosphere energizes you, you're probably a candidate for Omaha Latin lessons in a live online classroom. A further benefit of this choice is that you can sign up for one or more individual tutoring lessons if you need to cover a particular concept that's challenging you.

If you enjoy working in a trusting, one-on-one relationship with someone who knows your needs and has a great deal of flexibility to meet them, you might want to work with an Omaha Latin tutor. This is also a good option if your learning style is different than most other students, if you have a specialized reason for learning Latin and need to focus on that rather than general language acquisition, or if you learn more quickly or slowly than a regular classroom is usually taught.

It's also a great choice if a classroom setting makes it hard for you to concentrate. Signing up for lessons with an Omaha Latin tutor allows you the greatest flexibility in what's studied, how it's studied, and even when it's studied, as it's easier to negotiate lesson times when it's just you and your private instructor rather than a whole class of students.

What are the benefits of taking Omaha Latin lessons?

Taking Latin lessons can help you if you plan to enter fields where Latin is used a great deal. It also makes it much easier to learn other languages, especially Romance languages.

Whether you're learning Latin on your own or in an official academic class, studying with a professional instructor in a class or individual lessons has a number of advantages. For one, you can use the language as it was meant to be used, which is to communicate with other people, whether that's a class full or one other individual. Second, your instructor can point out any misconceptions you may have before they develop into problems. Of all the subjects you could take, a new language is one that you shouldn't spend too much time studying alone.
