Latin II students develop the skills and tools they need to read and understand authentic authors. Students increase their understanding of complex sentences and how to break those down into manageable parts. Students learn many skills to help them with this goal, including mastering vocabulary, the subjunctive mood, passive voice, participles, various uses of noun cases, and degrees of adjectives. Students not only work with these words at sight, but are also encouraged to listen to and speak Latin. Students explore different cultural topics to provide context for each work and to compare our modern world to the ancient one. Students frequently learn about different aspects of ancient culture to enhance the reading at hand or to make connections to modern events. These topics include mythology, Roman history and daily life, and philosophy. Students who complete Latin II are well-prepared to continue their studies in Latin III.
