In Latin 3, students begin to transition toward reading authentic Latin prose. Students are introduced to high-level syntactical and grammatical structures. They will further strengthen their English reading and vocabulary skills through vocabulary building and analyzing sentence structure. Through the reading selections and class discussions, students learn about the literary and stylistic devices appropriate for prose. Concentration is also focused on the philosophic, historic, and cultural aspects relevant to these selections. Students will develop a sense of meaningful phrase grouping with appropriate voice inflection and fluency when reading, and will begin to use Latin orally to hold short conversations. Students will begin to compose complex written sentences and/or short dialogues in Latin. Ethos offers dual credit through Colorado Christian University. CCU issues a 3 hour credit for this Ethos course.
