Latin and French
Building Foundations in Languages
Beginning in Grade 4 all students at St. Timothy’s receive Latin instruction. Right through to Grade 8 they methodically work through Latin spellings, vocabulary, grammatical structures and pronunciations. Why Latin?
French begins in grade one with an emphasis on vocabulary acquisition, the structures of grammar, and proper pronunciation. As with our English grammar program and our Latin classes, there is a strong emphasis placed on acquiring proper grammar skills, including verb conjugation, both written and oral, as a foundation for further learning.
