Latin II – Plurals

Happy Saturday everyone! The previous Latin video may have been a tad bit long, but it covered the main language rules of Latin as Latin is a pretty simple language and is not too hard to figure out. The video this week is on Latin plurals – basically, on how we can change a singular word in Latin to its plural tense. Many times plural words are asked in spelling bees, so it is important to know and understand how Latin deals with its plurals!

Latin I

Hello all! I am so excited to finally start our languages! The first language we will cover is Latin (which is one of the most crucial languages for English and the spelling bees). Latin acts like a mother to the Romance languages, which include French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian. In this video, we will first explore the history of Latin and its influence on English, and then we will continue to look at the spelling and language rules of Latin. The video is slightly long, but it covers the main aspects of Latin (the future videos of the other languages will be broken up into sub-parts). Enjoy!
