Description: Latin 2 leads students from understanding rules of the Latin language to applying those rules with greater consistency, confidence, and creativity. Students continue reading, translating, and composing in Latin while learning how the Roman legacy leads to—and continues through—the American experience. By studying higher levels of Latin usage, students gain greater access to the contributions of Roman culture and are prepared to observe how deeply it influenced the development of western European nations—and ultimately the United States.

  • Prerequisites

    Students should have completed Latin 1 or an equivalent course, and should be able to read and write at a 10th grade level.  

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Latin 2?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with listed Latin 2 class times?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
