Section: Languages, Summer

Have you been asked to teach Latin, even though you know little about the language? Are you a homeschooling parent who is trying to keep ahead of your children in their Latin studies? Or are you simply curious about Latin, but you don’t have time to take a full course at the local college? Wilson Hill Academy’s Latin-in-a-Week is the course for you. LIAW will cover all 40 chapters of that classic Latin text Wheelock’s Latin in just five days. You will be surprised at just how much you will absorb during this summer intensive course. Special attention is given to teaching Latin, so that LIAW alumni will be prepared to share what they have learned with others. Additionally, all the course sessions are recorded and made available to you, so that you may revisit the sessions throughout the year, as needed. Joanna Hensley has been teaching this course since 2008, and she is armed with handouts, slides, sound files, and exercises, all designed to make the LIAW experience a highlight of your summer.

As a bonus, Mrs. Hensley will hold monthly LIAW-alumni meetings throughout the school year for anyone who wants to check in, ask questions, or get feedback about their Latin. Highly-motivated teens, grad students facing comps, parents, teachers, and other life-long learners are also encouraged to register.
