Description: This course reviews English grammar while teaching the basics of the Latin language as presented in The Latin Road to English Grammar,Vol. 1. Emphasis will be on noun cases and declensions, verb conjugation, syntax, derivatives, verb tenses, prepositions, adjectives, dictionary study, prefixes, and suffixes.  The program utilizes word studies from scripture, history, and patriotic and Christmas songs. I have taught Latin 15 years using this curriculum with great success with students of a wide range of abilities.   Medical terminology is foundational for the health professions This class gives students looking toward the medical field a head start in learning the basic concepts of medical terminology and the terminology of disease, treatment, and the body systems. We will use a colorfully-illustrated college-level text that presents terms in an easy-to-understand format with exercises that are vocabulary-focused
