Why should I take this course?
We begin ab initio with the brilliant textbook by Hans Ørberg. This inductive, ground-up model gets you reading expert, connected Latin prose from the very first sentence: Roma in Italia est. It then gradually introduces more vocabulary and ever more sophisticated forms in a natural and delightful way.
Until now the only way to work through a book like this with an expert was to sit in the classroom. For some people this is completely unworkable or threatening and intimidating. Speak Latin on the spot?! No way! Dr. Noe is making this class available so that you can watch as he interacts with real-life students, hearing their mistakes, listening to the corrections, watching their successes, and learning right along. It’s like the ultimate reality TV show but in Latin, kind of like the “can’t fail army”!
Because the sessions are recorded you can watch them as many times as you would like and take notes so that you can review material. In addition, you have constant access to Dr. Noe’s expertise and a ready response to all your questions. There’s no longer any reason not to develop a solid and confident foundation in Latin.
