Class Learning Goals
Students learn slightly more advanced aspects of the Latin language, including more declensions and verb forms, allowing them to translate and use the language with far greater facility.
Our Online Latin Course's second Latin class builds on what students learned in the previous semester. Curriculum for Latin 1B includes the personal pronounds Ego, Tu, and Is; the perfect system of verbs; reflexive pronouns and possessives; intensive adjectives/pronouns; 3rd-declension i-stem nouns; 3rd-declension adjectives; 4th-declension nouns; relative pronouns; passive verb forms; and special case uses.
The next session of Latin 1B runs from Feb. to June 2019. It is an accredited live online class held through Skype at pre-scheduled times. The Carmenta Latin 1B class operates just like an in-person class, with teacher and students hearing and seeing each other in real time. Students enroll in either the morning or the evening section. The Morning Section is held M/W/F 11 AM - noon Eastern Time. The Evening Section is held M/W/F 8-9 PM Eastern Time. The class is open to all students ages 13 and up, both teenagers and adults. This Latin 1B class is the second class of the 8-semester accredited Carmenta Latin Course. All students are required to begin the course in Latin 1A and proceed through the course in order — students are not allowed to begin in Latin 1B or above. Students who would like to begin at a higher level have the option of taking the accredited Carmenta Course through one of our One-on-One Latin Instructors.
Each class session is 1 hour long if class enrollment is 5 students or more. If 3 or 4 students are enrolled in a class, then class sessions are 45 minutes long; if there are 1 or 2 students, then they are 30 minutes long.
Students who enroll in Latin 1B need to purchase the two required textbooks: Wheelock's Latin and Workbook for Wheelock's Latin. Click Here to purchase textbooks. Students are expected to have both textbooks by the first day of class.

"I think my teacher is good because he is focused and cares about teaching. My teacher has helped me with adjusting to Latin. I think my teacher does a great job with helping me learn."

"Brian has been an amazing teacher this new semester. He has been especially helpful in teaching us not only the main material, but also more technical aspects of the language. His friendliness has also made taking this class much easier and much more enjoyable. Brian’s teaching method (such as drills) have also made learning Latin so much easier."

"Audra is wonderful! Her level of Latin is incredible. It is a joy to be taught by her since she has pursued Latin with such dedication. She is patient and makes the class work for each of us students. My Latin is coming along well and this will be valuable as I eventually prepare for a Master’s Degree. Audra has a great grasp on materials, and I love that she makes us drill grammar, which really makes it stick. My favorite part of the class is when we read Latin stories."

"Nathaniel and Katherine [my daughter and a Latin Junior student] really love their Carmenta Latin classes! When working through which classes to keep or drop due to either cost or scheduling issues, they each said they'd rather keep Latin and would do what they can to keep it. We're thankful for you [Andrew] and the Carmenta instructors for making Latin come alive to them and inspire their love of learning."
