Fourth Form Latin: Student Text
Fourth Form Latin completes the journey of Latin grammar by reviewing all material in First, Second, and Third Form, completing all verb forms for all four conjugations by studying participles, infinitives, gerunds, and much more. Fourth Form continues to employ the identical format of First Form—an attractive, concise Student Text, systematic presentation in five units, extensive Workbook exercises, and a Teacher Manual with everything you need to successfully teach this course.
Based on twenty years of teaching experience, the revolutionary “grammar-first” First Form Series will be your guide as you and your students successfully climb the mountain of Latin Grammar all the way to the top! The uniqueness of the First Form Series lies in two features: (1) Commitment to the trivium model of teaching grammar systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, rather than topically, to facilitate translation; and (2) Extensive workbook exercises to ensure skills mastery and rapid recognition of inflected forms.
The 9.5×7 inch Fourth Form Latin Student Text is small, concise, and unintimidating, with 34 two-page lessons on uncluttered facing pages in an attractive two-color format. It offers a systematic presentation of grammar in five logical units and includes appendices with English grammar, prayers, conversational Latin, a vocabulary index, and more.
In Fourth Form, the student will master:
- The locative case
- Relative and interrogative pronouns
- Participles, infinitives, gerunds, & gerundives
- Deponent verbs
- Irregular verbs, including eo, fero, and volo
- Syntax: relative clauses, sequence of tenses, indirect questions, indirect statements (accusative with infinitive), gerundive of obligation, and more
