Latin 2 continues the study of Latin, concerning itself primarily with the further study of basic grammar and vocabulary. Students will improve their translating skills (which includes the use of more advanced vocabulary and knowledge of syntax and grammar) in order to read a wider variety of Latin authors in preparation for IB Latin. Students will also delve deeper into the history of Rome, her people, and her mythology.
