Class Details

The next session of Latin 3A runs from Sept. 2018 to Jan. 2019. It is an accredited live online class held through Skype at pre-scheduled times. The Carmenta Latin 3A 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 3A class is the fifth 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 3A 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.
