Using the Cambridge Latin Course, Unit I, Latin 7 focuses on developing basic skills: vocabulary acquisition techniques, basic morphology of nouns and verbs, basic syntax. By the end of Latin 7, students are able to read connected passages involving simple and some complex sentences using nouns of the first, second and third declensions and verbs conjugated in several tenses of the indicative mood.
