Whether you're starting your first classes at Southwest High School, finishing off your final year at Reagan High School, furthering your education at Trinity University, Texas, or studying for any other reason, Varsity Tutors offers a San Antonio Latin course that provides many options for furthering your understanding of Latin.

When studying in a classroom or lecture hall, learning is limited to the time your teacher or professor has in each class period. Often, their hands are tied when it comes to what topics and information can be covered because they are restricted to a certain curriculum that provides the information needed to face standardized tests. One of the ways people learn unfamiliar concepts - like languages - is to relate the new information to something they already know. Regular classrooms have a limited capacity to help anyone who might be struggling or who needs an extra boost to flip the switch from the dark of confusion to the light of understanding.

Even if your teacher or professor does a good job explaining things, language learning is one of those subjects where you really need to go beyond the classroom to cement your understanding. This can include using solid study techniques, practicing outside of class, and making crucial connections to your previous knowledge. These skills can be vastly enhanced when you participate in a San Antonio Latin class.

Although considered a "dead language," Latin lives on in many ways. It forms the root of "Romance" languages including Italian, French, and Portuguese. "Romance" is capitalized because it was the language of the city of Rome, which is a proper noun. Latin also gave us the alphabet we use today, although it had fewer letters in ancient times. The Roman alphabet did not include "j," "v," and "w," which came later.

Latin is also used in modern career areas like law, medicine, and the sciences. In fact, new terms coined in scientific and technological realms often are rooted in Latin. It also remains the official language of both Roman Catholicism and the Vatican.

How can I improve my language learning skills in a San Antonio Latin course?

Learning a language always stretches your mind, but acquiring Latin is considered somewhat easier for English speakers to master. That's partially because much of our language was derived from Latin, even though English is not a Romance language. Even if you don't use them yourself, you'll probably recognize many Latin terms that were adopted "verbatim" into English. Genuine people or original documents are "bona fide." Censuses and other head counts are expressed as '"per capita." Things that stay the same are said to be "status quo."

Although Latin vocabulary words are used in today's English, you need to know how a language actually works if you want to read beautiful epic poems in their original language, understand medical or legal terms, or if you decide to work in the sciences.

English speakers find some challenge in learning Latin because it uses some unfamiliar conventions. Rather than relying on word order, inflections (endings of words) indicate how words relate to one another in a sentence and give you the clues you need to get understand what it means. Inflections on verbs tell you who is performing the action eliminating the need for pronouns. In addition, there are three genders in Latin nouns: masculine, feminine, and neuter. Adjectives must agree with the noun they are modifying and also indicate whether a noun is singular or plural.

What can you expect from the San Antonio Latin course?

These courses were created to help students in learning Latin. Joining a course gives you the opportunity to hone your study skills so that you can understand the tricks and rules of Latin. These sessions have been designed to help you deepen your knowledge of mechanics like spelling, grammar, punctuation, and pronunciation of Latin letters and letter combinations. To help you retain what you learn, the session instructor can cover overarching topics like the history and traditions of ancient Rome, all the way to crucial details like pairing gendered nouns and adjectives correctly.

A San Antonio Latin class provides an exclusively online learning environment. In this virtual space, you'll be able to see, hear, and interact as if you were learning in person. Online delivery provides flexibility, saves you money, and cuts out the hassle of transportation and parking. Learn in your home or where ever you learn best. Several sections begin each month, and you can choose the length of study that suits your needs, in either two-week or four-week increments.

In a San Antonio Latin class, you can get answers to your questions and - more importantly - learn how to enhance your study strengths by using methods that work best for you. To individualize the learning experience, courses can include anything from visual aids like flashcards to aural and verbal practice listening and speaking with others. With help, you can also identify ways to improve your study skills. Tutoring provides the time to dig deeper into concepts, further explore the rules of Latin, or learn contextual cues that can help you remember what you've learned.

When you take this course, you have the option to study together in a group setting with others facing some of the same struggles as you. Working in a class gives you the advantage of learning from others' experiences, sharing study tips, engaging in group discussions, and improving your conversation skills by pairing up with your classmates. If you need a more concentrated option, you can also ask about one-on-one tutoring.

How do I get started?

Learning a language with classroom instruction alone can be overwhelming. Discovering and honing your study strengths, having someone to answer your questions, or learning with a group of others can provide the key that unlocks your success.
