This is a searchable, easy-to-navigate online version of the standard Latin grammar reference work we use in Latin class. It is hosted at the Dickinson College Commentary site, run by the great Christopher Francese.

This is an elementary Latin course accompanied with a detailed grammar based upon Kennedy's Public School Latin Grammar designed to introduce one to the world of classical languages. A basic understanding of grammatical terminology would be helpful; however, it is not required. Basic definitions of terms will be explained in Lessons 1 and 2, and later elaborated as needed.

For detailed explanations and examples of English grammatical terms, please consult the English Grammar textbook. However, Latin grammar is quite different from that of English, and thus it requires different grammatical terms to explain the concepts. These will be taught as needed.

This program offers beginning and intermediate courses in Latin. It normally takes four terms to complete, and your placement will determine how many courses you will need to fulfill your language requirement. These classes are taught by department faculty members and graduate student instructors who have been trained in the teaching of Latin. We place a high priority on knowing our students well, being available to them, and working with them to ensure their success in Latin. Our courses are learner-oriented in many ways, including a highly-structured introductory textbook, supplementary drills and exercises available on-line, the use of pre-tests to facilitate more effective preparation for tests, and a walk-in tutoring center available to all elementary Latin students.

In addition to introducing the grammar and syntax of the Latin language, our classes encourage students to become more aware of the phenomenon of human language and of themselves as language users and learners. Our goal is to enable students to become proficient and confident readers of Latin, and to introduce them to the language, art, literature, and culture of ancient Rome.

This is the beginning course of the elementary Latin sequence. It assumes no previous knowledge of or recent experience with Latin. The course covers the first half of the textbook used for Latin 101 and 102, at approximately two lessons each week. Students will cover all cases of nouns, the use of adjectives and adverbs, the Latin infinitive, the present and perfect participles, and present and perfect tense indicative verbs. They will learn to recognize sentence patterns and to handle dependent clauses. In addition, they will begin to develop strategies and techniques for reading Latin which will allow them to handle individual sentences and narrative passages with confidence and ease. Some practice with adapted, authentic readings are included in this course. Upon completion of Latin 101, students move on to Latin 102, which covers the remainder of Latin forms and grammar.

All of the assigned tasks/exercises in Latin 101 are directed toward the reading and translation of Classical Latin and not toward writing or conversation. The course has as its primary objective the acquisition of a fundamental understanding of basic Latin grammar and the development of basic reading skills.

To complete the introduction of basic Latin grammar, this course continue with the introduction of dependent clauses and subjunctive construction. Students gain more practice translating adapted authentic prose texts in class, in order to prepare them for Latin 231.

This course reviews grammar as it introduces students to the masters of classical Latin prose through Caesar's De Bello Gallico and Augustus' Res Gestae (first centuries B.C. and A.D.). The goal is to acquire efficient reading, translation and study skills, while exploring texts, concepts and historical traditions that shed light on Rome's growth into an Empire. Students learn a series of practices to complete when beginning to work on a passage of Latin, how to read through a Latin sentence from left to right without losing comprehension, what secrets Latin word order can disclose, how to select the appropriate meaning for a word from a number of possibilities, and how to handle a sight passage of Latin with confidence and accuracy. Free tutoring and computer support for self-practice are available to help students succeed in the course.

A thorough review of the forms and grammar of Latin are built into the syllabus. A variety of prose texts are used in this course. We continue to build vocabulary in this course, and we also teach more about Roman culture and history. Class sessions are often devoted to practicing these skills that will help students succeed. This course has computer support for self-practice and reference, such as vocabulary and morphology drills, translations for assigned texts, notes on content and grammar, and historical background. Following Latin 231, students move on to the final course in the language requirement sequence, Latin 232.

This course is an intensive honors section which covers the 231 material in half a semester and includes an introduction to Virgil's Aeneid in its second half. The course reviews grammar as it introduces students to the masters of classical Latin prose through extensive passages from authors of the first centuries B.C. and A.D such as Livy and Caesar. Efficient reading and translation skills are the goal. In addition, students will acquire knowledge of meter and poetic style through the reading of selections from Virgil's Aeneid.

The readings in the course focus on the most notable figures in Roman history and literature and invite students to contemplate the character traits and circumstances that forge greatness." After successful completion of this course, students can start accumulating credit towards a major/minor in a Classics-related field by enrolling into a 300-level Latin course or higher for the last term of the language requirement. After this course, one more course (232 or 301) IS REQUIRED to fulfill the language requirement.

The purpose of this section is to provide an opportunity to students who want to minor or major in any Classics concentration program to move to higher level courses faster and thus to start accumulating credits needed for the fulfillment of their minor or major requirements earlier in their undergraduate career. Please contact Donka Markus if you have questions about this class or need an override for enrollment.

The goal of this course is to read original texts (Cicero, Livy, Catullus or Ovid) with both speed and depth of comprehension. The course offers grammar review depending on student need and targets advanced grammatical structures and complex word-order. Special attention will be given to translation skills and questions of meter, style, and literary interpretation. This class is only required for students who elected to take Latin 231 Honors and still need another course to finish their language requirement.

This is a Latin course for beginners. By reading simple Latin texts and trying to write (or, if you like, speak) some Latin yourself, you learn the first grammar essentials and acquire a basic passive vocabulary of c. 1000 words. Choice of a particular textbook and specialization on particular aspects, e.g. Medieval Latin, is possible.

Roby was involved in reforming the governance of public and grammar schools. In December 1864 he was appointed secretary of the Schools Inquiry Commission, which examined some 800 institutions. He was the author of much of the final report of the commission, which led to the enactment of the Endowed Schools Act 1869.[1][2]

The study of Latin does require a great deal of memorization, but students of middle elementary age are especially suited to this very thing. Being able to master something like a verb conjugation or noun declensions might seem boring to an adult (and even more a high school or college student), but can be proud mark of achievement for a 4th grader.
