I personally had no experience with Latin My eldest son and I sat down one day and started the first lesson of Prima Latina and by the end of it we were both excited about Latin and looking forward to continue My son enjoyed it to the point that he was using some expressions during the day For example before starting a prayer he would sometimes use the term for Let Us Pray which is Oremus We learned that the Latin alphabet has only 25 letters (I will let you search for which letter is missing) and the pronunciation of the letters are sometimes different than the English alphabetSo �Why Latin?� Latin is the base of many languages in the World � French English Spanish Portuguese and Italian to name only a few I think it would be nice to learn this language and have a good base for other languages as well Did you know that in the English language over half of the words come from Latin? I didn�t know this and I think it is pretty impressive Latin also helps to learn English grammar I am a French Canadian and I am finding that I am learning a lot in both English and French with these lessons Besides Latin is used a lot in science and understanding it would help to decipher the terms used for animals plants and other science terminologyThe DVDs are a must I highly recommend getting them as well It makes the lesson so much easier and you learn the proper pronunciation right away Leigh Lowe is just wonderful in her lessons The videos are professionally made and you can sense her passion for this language The lesson on DVD is very interactive as well Leigh takes the time to repeat multiple times to make sure the students understand and as some point she lets the students answer her in the video I think it is a great way to keep the attention of the students She also makes the lesson so easy to grasp and apply by explaining the meaning and giving the derivative You won�t look at an English word the same way anymore � I guarantee it! By combining the student book with the DVD lesson and the CD Leigh makes certain that she uses all senses to learn a complex language The student will see it on the TV and in the book hear it multiple times and also say it in response to the lessonFor younger students I strongly recommend you start with Prima Latina as it presents the basic vocabulary of the language As soon as your student is more comfortable in learning grammar and expanding his knowledge then I would recommend Latina Christiana I which can be followed by Latina Christiana II

WOW! Prima Latina has taken the Latin "Monster" out of my Classical Homeschooling closet! I was TERRIFIED to teach Latin and therefore rejected the idea of a classical education for my children Leigh Lowe has changed all that with this easy-to-use Latin curriculum! The DVD's provide concise instruction from a master teacher in an easy to watch and listen to format The presentation of each lesson is around 10 minutes in length The student book and pronunciation CD are great for daily reinforcement of each lesson and the teacher guide couldn't be better! I purchased the complete set (the best price was here at Rainbow Resource) after watching Lesson 1 at a friend's house with my son He's just 6-years-old grasping Latin like a champ and I'm no longer afraid to teach classically!

It is the first course in the series that I have already purchased.

Because in Classical Conversations, students use Henle Latin, and I want my students to be prepared! This curriculum looked the most thorough, and Memoria Press also uses Henle in the upper grades. This looks like it is a great foundation for Latin study.

Use as a supplement to our Classical Conversations program

Based on the recommendations of "The Well-Trained Mind".

We have had 2 years of Classical Conversations Foundations and this curriculum was highly recommended to me by other CC parents to take their Latin to the next level.

I'm considering adding this to our homeschool subjects. However, my 7 yr old son is already learning Spanish. I'm worried that it might be overwhelming and/or confusing to him to try to learn both Latin and Spanish. Can anyone offer advice on teaching Spanish and Latin simultaneously?
User on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Start with the Latin first. It is really less confusing. After he has a reasonable grasp of it, then introduce the Spanish. The Latin introduction of conjugation of words and gender are fairly simple, Spanish can be a little tricky.
Is this appropriate for my 3-5th graders who have zero Latin experience or should we jump right to latina christiana?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I am using it with my second and sixth graders. It doesn't teach an overwhelming amount of Latin. It exposes them to it slowly and they actually do most of it themselves. They quiz each other and seem to enjoy it. I am very happy with it.
