About this Course

NSA Latin 2 is a self-paced online course designed to bring new students to a reading knowledge of Classical, Medieval, and Reformation-era Latin. It is centered on readings from the Latin Bible and exercises in Latin composition; it makes equal use of both grammatical explanation and examples, so as to be effective for a wide range of students (from those who are highly mathematical to those who prefer to learn by imitation). New vocabulary and grammar are introduced through period-appropriate illustrations; Biblical passages are lightly adapted so as to correspond to the student’s current knowledge of grammar.
