Varsity Tutors offers a San Francisco - Bay Area Latin course that can improve your language learning experience. We enroll students at Lowell High School, the University of San Francisco, and many other schools in the San Francisco - Bay Area in Latin courses to help them reach for their learning goals. Learning a new language can be difficult, and you may not be getting the practice and help you need in your classroom curriculum. Not only can Latin courses provide you with time and effective practice learning Latin, but they also provide you with guidance from an expert Latin instructor.

Latin was first encountered in central Italy. There are two types of Latin: Classical and Vulgar. Classical Latin is distinguished by its formality and elegance. It is greatly influenced by Greek. Vulgar Latin is the most popular form of the language. The Romance languages of Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Romanian descended from Vulgar Latin. It was carried by the soldiers and colonists of Rome throughout the Roman Empire. English has proven to be the most receptive among the Germanic languages to be influenced by Latin.

Latin is referred to as a "dead" language as it is no longer spoken widely. However, Latin roots continue to serve as a major source for the derivation of new terms in the sciences and technologies. Knowing Latin could help you advance your career as it is used in medicine, theology, scientific research, and the legal profession. The Roman alphabet is still used for English and many other languages around the world. Having a good knowledge of Latin can also be useful when studying Romance languages.

We can enroll students at all levels of Latin proficiency in a San Francisco - Bay Area Latin class that can help you work to improve your understanding of the language. This means if you are a freshman at Abraham Lincoln High or a student taking advanced level courses at any other college or school in the San Francisco - Bay Area, we can help you enroll in a class that fits your needs.

What Kind of Material Does a San Francisco - Bay Area Course Cover?

Every language has its own nuances that you will need to learn in order to understand it. It can take patience and practice to learn Latin, although most students find pronouncing Latin to be fairly easy to master. Since Latin is a "dead" language you don't have to worry about speaking with an 'authentic' Latin accent. Once you are able to pronounce Latin on a consistent basis, you will be able to master Latin vocabulary quicker and read more fluently. It is relatively easy for native English speakers to learn Latin vocabulary as many English words come from Latin. For example, "rapid" in English originates from the Latin word "rapidus".

Inflection is very important to understand the meaning of a sentence in Latin. Inflections are the endings of words. It is important that you focus on the end of words rather than the beginning. This is how you can tell who is doing what to whom. In English, we use a very strict system of word order, but in Latin, there is much less importance in the word order of sentences.

A San Francisco - Bay Area Latin class can help you learn all of these concepts of Latin, as well as vocabulary, gendered nouns, verbs, grammar and sentence structure, and history. Latin classes can cover all of these things in a class-like setting so you can get more practice building your understanding of the language while enjoying a familiar learning atmosphere.

How Can a San Francisco - Bay Area Latin Course Help Me Learn?

Varsity Tutors offers classes that are taught entirely online. You will interact online with a class of other students at your skill level and an expert Latin instructor. You will be able to see and talk to your classmates and instructor, so will be able to engage in language learning activities with them. Even if you are understanding the material being covered in your class, you can help a classmate better understand it, which can improve your retention of the material. You can also benefit from collaborative learning by being exposed to different approaches and styles of learning.

There may be times that you need one-on-one attention from your Latin instructor, so our classes offer you the ability to schedule private sessions with your instructor to get the additional help you need to understand more challenging material. One-on-one time with your instructor also allows you to ask questions that you may not feel comfortable asking in the class sessions.

These classes are designed to give you many different ways to succeed in your pursuit of learning Latin, but perhaps that best part about our classes is that they are administered online. This means no worrying about commute time. We know that you are busy with many responsibilities aside from learning a new language. Most students have to focus their time on their family, extracurricular activities, and other education requirements. We offer classes at a variety of times, so you can choose a class that fits your schedule. You can also learn from anywhere with online classes. New classes begin each month, so Varsity Tutors can get you enrolled in one quickly.
