Full-year course. This course builds on the foundation established in Latin I. It is designed to excite students about Latin and encourage them to continue study in high school or at the college level. Over the course of the academic year, students will encounter Latin through a rich reading of Roman history and culture, using excerpts from Latin texts. Students will read, understand, and interpret Latin. They will also deepen their understanding of Latin grammar. Students will use skills in the following areas and build global competency skills for future careers and experience based on the World-readiness Standards for Learning Languages from the ACTFL: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.

We recommend that students enrolling in Latin II be comfortable with the topics covered in Grammar II. Grammar instruction is not a pre- or co-requisite, however we have found that students are more successful learning a new language when they have a strong understanding of grammar rules. Use the placement tests found in our grammar course descriptions to find the appropriate grammar course for your student.
