This text is set up in a traditional format and grammar is fully covered. Grammar concepts are presented in clear and simple language and we move along at a pace appropriate for the students in the class. Students are expected to memorize vocabulary, charts, and grammar rules referred to in the Latin Grammar. Several exercises may be available for each lesson but ones marked "Essential" must be completed and mastered by the student for success. Derivatives are discussed with vocabulary, and diagramming of sentences is introduced quickly. Each unit ends in a review of vocabulary and concepts.  This class will aid the child in his ability to memorize and organize information, as well as open the door to understanding quality English vocabulary words and important historical references in Roman history.
