Product Description:

(Publishers Description)

Latina Christiana I is, quite simply, the best Latin grammar course available for younger beginning students. Cheryl Lowe's clear explanations, easy instructions, and step-by-step approach have led thousands of teachers and students to declare, "I love Latin! With the help of this course, you are sure to love Latin too!

Students who have completed Latina Christiana I are now ready for the First Form Latin Series. Memoria Press recommends students move directly from Latina Christiana I to First Form.

Latina Christiana was designed as a beginning course for students of all ages. This course was specifically written for the teacher with no background in Latin.

There is an optional history component to Latina Christiana I taken from Chapters 1-13 of Famous Men of Rome (reading selections not included in LCI). Drill questions are included in Latina Christiana I, as well as a history test. Learning the history and culture of Rome is often a great motivating factor for students studying the Latin language.

Category Description for Latina Christiana (Gr. 3-8):

For years Latina Christiana has been a trusted introduction to Latin for the young student. That has not changed. Neither has the user-friendliness of the course or the underlying assumption that the teacher doesn't need to know Latin for the student to be successful. However, with its newest edition, Memoria Press has changed the overall purpose of the course just a bit. Latina Christiana I is now considered an introduction for young students to the Forms of Latin series. Its content has been changed to allow for a more seamless transition into First Form Latin. The actual changes to Latina Christiana I may seem slight (removal of personal pronouns and 'possum' and the addition of the imperfect and future of 'sum') but they are accompanied by a reordering of the lessons that means this 4th/2nd edition is not compatible with the previous 3rd/1st edition materials. [To avoid edition confusion in the LC-I books, just remember that the "evens" are the new and go together - i.e. 4th edition of Student Books and Teacher Manuals and 2nd editions of DVDs, Review Worksheets/Teacher, Flashcards, and Pronunciation CD.] Latina Christian II has been phased out and is now out of print.

Lessons (there are 25 plus five reviews) follow a consistent pattern and include an opening (dialogue, prayer, and optional music), recitation of grammar forms, a Latin saying, word study, derivatives, and grammar. Student Books have the lessons laid out in this order, followed by an exercise page for written translation and grammar work. The Teacher Manual shows a reduced copy of the student pages with answers filled in, surrounded by a lesson plan and teaching ideas including a grammar overview and a recitation schedule. The TM also includes reproducible quizzes (for each lesson) and tests (every five lessons) along with their answer keys. Useful appendices include prayers, songs, Latin sayings, grammar forms, vocabulary indices by grammar form and alphabetical, an English to Latin reference, and derivatives/definitions.

An optional history guide is included. LC-I has maps and questions for the first thirteen chapters of Famous Men of Rome (published by Memoria Press). Answers to these are found in the Teacher Manual.

Other course components include Flashcards, an audio CD, instructional DVDs, grammar charts, lesson plans, and Review Worksheets (and Teacher Key).

The Instructional DVDs (also available as a streaming option) provide just one more layer of user-friendliness for the non-Latin speaking mom/parent. Featuring "live" instruction for each lesson, they are designed as a follow-up to the book lessons and include a thorough coverage of grammar lessons, recitation, review, and vocabulary practice. There are about 15 minutes of instruction for each lesson. Please note that the new 2nd edition DVDs feature Jessica Watson as the instructor.

You might be wondering about the differences/relationship between Latina Christiana I and the Forms of Latin series. The Forms have more written exercises. Although an older student can start directly with First Form, the new 4th edition Latina Christiana I provides a solid introduction to Latin for a younger student and prepares them for First Form Latin. ~ Janice

Our son has really enjoyed the Latina Christiana curriculum. As the teacher, I loved having the video lessons from a professional to ensure we were using correct pronunciation; the DVD made learning Latin much more simple!

My son has already been through the first part of this book. It chunks the learning of the language into manageable pieces. My children actually love Latin!

I chose this because it is the level my child would be on if she could be in a classical school this year.

Memoria Press publishes solid, respected materials that make us confident we have chosen a good program for our sons. We know several young adults who attended Wyoming Catholic College, as well as other traditional liberal arts colleges, whose Latin was strong enough to be admitted to these rigorous programs, thanks to Memoria Press. While the materials aren't as engaging as some other programs, they are well-sequenced and clearly written.

Our son is enrolled in FreedomProject Academy (classical, live, online), and this is on the 4th grade book list. I have used this in previous years of home schooling as well.

I plan to study the Latin language along with my child. I may even try letting him check my completed workbook assignments to look for errors. :)

I have the 3rd edition teachers manual, cd and dvd's. Can I use the newest (4th edition) student book?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The 4th edition materials will not work with older editions.
How many minutes per day and days per week does this require?
User on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Each week we completed a lesson. I think we spent about 30 minutes each Monday going over the new lesson. Otherwise, we spent about 10-20 minutes per day reviewing and completing a portion of the exercise page to prepare for a quiz on Friday. My older children (gr. 7 and 9) could have worked through the book faster, but I wanted to set a pace that was not overwhelming for my other kids (gr.1 and 4). We did not complete the Roman history/geography part in the back.
Does the old answer key match up with the new edition?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how old. Right now I'm using a first edition video with the newest edition workbook and a different edition answer key. It takes a few minutes to figure out which lesson in his book corresponds to the video lesson. As for the answer key, it won't match up seamlessly. If you haven't spend the money already - get them to match up.
