Teaching the Latin Student to Translate. ERIC Focus Reports on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Number 17.
Strasheim, Lorraine A.
An examination of the goals of Latin teaching leads the author to conclude that its primary objective is the development of the ability to read extant Latin authors A brief review of past designs for teaching meaning leads to a discussion of phonetic, lexical, structural, and cultural meaning. Teaching techniques to help develop a mastery of the Latin sound system are included. Frequent examples illustrating an approach called "metaphrasing" focus on how both lexical and structural meaning is demonstrated to the student. (RL)
