Merging Linguistic Worlds: Mastering English Grammar through Latin

A successful Latin program places emphasis on mastering Latin grammar, recognizing its pivotal role in the language’s intricate structure. At Trinity Classical Academy, we center our teaching methodology on the use of a question-and-answer technique, which is mirrored in the instruction of both English and Latin grammar, fostering connections between the two languages. Within an interactive and collaborative environment, students demonstrate their comprehension of the subject matter through both verbal expression and written communication, cultivating enhanced retention and critical thinking skills.
