Latin I Part 1 will introduce students to Latin through stories about the adventures of a typical Roman family. Students will read along while listening to the stories, which will help them practice correct pronunciation. They will discover grammatical patterns by reading the stories and will practice applying these patterns in guided exercises. Excerpts about Roman life and the Roman world, as well as popular Roman myths, will give students a glimpse of the historical and cultural background of Rome and how it relates to our world today.
