World language 教育 is an essential part of the curriculum at Boston Trinity Academy. 学习语言使学生参与交际, 无论是面对面的, 以书面形式, or across the centuries through the reading of authentic literature. Students at Boston Trinity Academy study Latin in grades 7 and 8. 而拉丁语不再是任何一个国家的语言, 五种罗曼语, 法国, 意大利, 西班牙语, 葡萄牙语, 和罗马尼亚, 由拉丁语演变而来. We believe there are three main reasons that the study of Latin is beneficial for all students.
- First, knowledge of Latin provides a foundation upon which to build future language acquisition. 学习时态概念, 情况下, 数量, and gender helps students master the basics of 英语 language arts.
- 第二个, 拉丁语词根知识, 后缀, and prefixes enables students of 英语 literature to understand words that might otherwise be unfamiliar to them.
- 第三, 学习拉丁语教会学生系统地思考, 这是未来学业成功的另一个重要工具.
The foundation provided to Boston Trinity Academy's middle school students through the study of Latin is one upon which they will build as they study 法国 or 西班牙语 in high school and as they understand and then learn to express themselves with an ever improving rich and nuanced vocabulary.
