About Us

Picta Dicta Learning Platform

A Classical Education is a wonderful gift to give our children, but it is no walk in the park. We designed our learning platform specifically to help parents and teachers teach children better and more easily.


Our courses are currently all in Latin, as this is one of the most challenging subjects to get children to love and understand. However, our elementary courses are integrative and have as much English and history as they do Latin. Soon, we plan to offer other courses in other challenging subjects.


Our courses work on a desktop computer (PC or Mac) or tablet with an internet connection.

Our Method

See it.


Picta Dicta uses colorful, hand drawn illustrations to teach Latin vocabulary words. The pictures are simple enough to comprehend quickly, complicated enough to be accurate, and interesting enough to make memorization fun.

Hear it.


Some people are visual learners, others are auditory, but most benefit from both seeing and hearing. In Picta Dicta, you hear the word pronounced as you see each picture, and in most cases you hear the word used in a sentence about the illustration.

Understand it.


Sometimes, seeing and hearing a word used properly is not enough. If you are unsure about the meaning of a word, Picta Dicta has a dictionary tab only one click away with a definition of the word and several possible English translations.
