During the second year course, students work to understand and use more complex grammar and more extensive vocabulary, especially in reading and writing. They now learn the other verb tenses, having primarily focused only on present tense in the previous year. They continue to ponder the foundations of western civilization through explorations of Roman daily life, history, literature, geography, and mythology. Students refine strategies for improving memory, polishing written and oral expression, and deepening critical thinking skills.
All Latin students belong to the California Junior Classical League and have the option to participate in local and statewide conventions.
