Varsity Tutors can help students of all ages enroll in Raleigh-Durham Latin lessons that suit their needs, whether they're looking for extra help in a Latin course at North Carolina State University or they are students at Southeast Raleigh High School seeking a new language learning opportunity. Learning a new language is always tough. In addition to using skills that you've perhaps never needed before and encountering all the new challenges that come with learning a second language, you will also have to contend with the fact that Latin is no longer spoken by any community in the world outside of Vatican City and the Roman Catholic Church. A good Raleigh-Durham Latin lesson can help you get a better handle on the challenges associated with learning Latin, whether that is through one of our online lessons or from a Raleigh-Durham Latin tutor.

Even though Latin isn't the official language of any large community anywhere in the world, it is one of the most highly influential languages in history. It is the precursor of the Romance languages Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese, and French, so learning it is endlessly useful for anyone who wants to learn how to speak those languages. English has also been greatly influenced by Latin, something that you will most likely notice as you learn Latin vocabulary. The Roman alphabet that was used in written Latin is still used for English and other languages around the world, and the legal and medical professions still rely on Latin phrases and vocabulary.

Colleges and even some high schools offer Latin courses, but while they will teach you what you need to know about the basics, you may need additional help from extra Raleigh-Durham Latin lessons to build a true command. Varsity Tutors can enroll you in an online Latin course where you can interact with instructors and students in a virtual classroom or help you find a reliable Raleigh-Durham Latin tutor who can provide you with one-on-one instruction either online or in person when you need it. Each type of lesson offers its own advantages, and we will be happy to find a learning solution that works best for you.

What Skills Might an Instructor Review During Raleigh-Durham Latin Lessons?

Latin is a language that dates back to roughly the 6th Century BC, at least in its written form. It was first encountered in Latium, the region in Central Italy where Rome is now located. By the beginning of the Roman Empire, the language had split into classical Latin and vulgar Latin. Classical Latin was the formal written version of the language and is considered to be more formal and elegant, while vulgar Latin was the spoken form that was used by most native speakers. Vulgar Latin differed from classical Latin in its use of prepositions, its less frequent employment of inflection, and its vocabulary. It is vulgar Latin that became the basis of the Romance languages. This does sound like a lot to cover by most high school and college Latin courses, and that is merely the history of the language. A good online Latin course or lessons from a Raleigh-Durham Latin tutor can help you to better understand these concepts as well as the vocabulary, verb conjugation, inflection, and pronunciation.

One of the biggest hurdles to learning Latin is the lack of opportunities that students have to speak it. Immersion is the best way to learn how to speak and understand a language, but you won't have many opportunities to practice having conversations in a dead language. Even so, Raleigh-Durham Latin lessons can provide you with chances to practice speaking with fellow students and instructors. Some students even find this easier than with other languages since there is no pressure to develop an authentic Latin accent. They will also find that many Latin words sound almost identical to their English counterparts. Still, practicing how to speak a language is an important part of understanding it, and classes with students or private instructors can provide this kind of immersion. It might even give you the opportunity to help students who are struggling with the material.

How Do the Two Types of Raleigh-Durham Latin Lessons Work?

The two types of Raleigh-Durham Latin lessons that we can sign you up for are online Latin courses and private lessons from Raleigh-Durham Latin tutors. With the online Latin courses, you will join a qualified and experienced Latin instructor and a group of students much like yourself in a virtual classroom. You will be able to engage in learning activities and opportunities to converse in Latin with your fellow students and instructors. Since these classes are online, there is no need to travel to a physical school, which makes them much more convenient for those with busy schedules. You will be able to attend any course you wish from anywhere as long as you have access to a reliable Internet connection. These courses are available in two-hour or four-hour sections, and new courses open up every month. Even though much of the focus is on group activity and immersion, you will still be able to request one-on-one help from your instructor.

If you're the type of student who does better with private individual instruction, we can help you find a good Raleigh-Durham Latin tutor for some one-on-one help. These lessons can be catered to your own learning style to take advantage of new learning opportunities that might prove useful to you. Like the Latin classes that are offered, these sessions are mostly online and can be based around your own schedule. You also have the option of arranging a face-to-face meeting with your instructor at your home, a library, or wherever you are comfortable scheduling a lesson.
