    cambridge latin

    I took this course in the seventh grade in a charter school last year and laerned a lot from it. It explains things pretty well so my whole class was able to keep up and understand it. The storys were entertaining and you get a lot of roman history out of it. The history for me was a big bonus and it tells you about roman daily lives and such. I plan to reread it again this summer with my younger brother and sister. I learned a lot from it and learning latin has helped with my other readings.

    CLC Is Pretty Good

    This series is pretty good. It teaches Latin in an easy way, but it is skimpy. It does not condense a lot of vocabulary very well. It teaches about 3 times more in a chapter than is on the vocabulary checklist. What I don't understand is how they teach imperfect and perfect tense before the present tense for we and you (plural). It is written well, but not great. The sketches are okay, but it would be better if they were in color like Ecce Romani. I think the excercises are too easy and there aren't enough examples and practice questions to thoroughly review the lesson learned in a chapter. Finally, the stories are not that funny and are poorly written.

    Cambridge Latin Course Unit 1

    I use this book for school. I'm a ninth grader at a charter school, way out in the middle of nowhere. This book not only teaches Latin, but teaches history to. You learn the history of Caecilius, and his wife Metella. I've only been in school for four months, and I've already learned so much. From declensions, cases, direct object, so on and so forth. The only down part of this book, is the stories they have in it, they're not written the very best. Another thing is, I would like to know other things, that don't just revolve around Caecilius and his life.

    Mom Does Latin

    I am working my way through this book for the second time, this time with my youngest child, a tenth grade student taking all PreAP/AP courses. She has just gotten her first 6 weeks grades and made a 99 in Latin, so she must be learning something. I get to help her study, so I'm learning Latin, too. I find Book I to be entertaining, in a 'Meet Dick and Jane' sort of way. I bought a beat-up old copy at the Used Book Fair and I'm glad I have it. My daughter's school-issued copy is neat and pretty. Mine has been chewed. The first book will be used in the fall semester, so I have to find a used copy of Book II ('In Brittanium' or whatever), by January. I remember it from my son's first year of Latin several years ago. It's the one he lost and we had to pay, like, $40 for! My biggest problem with the book(s) is the skimpy 'dictionary' in the back. Only a select few of the words taught in the text can be found in the dicionary. At least they could have tried to make it complete, or given a better sense of how each word can be used in the various declentions, etc. (oh, pardon me: Ett KETT-era), and do a better job of showing the plural forms of nouns and so forth. Still, it's not the dry, boring grammar-fest I imagine most Latin texts to be. My interest is history, and this text, set against the backdrop of 1st century Pompeii (guess what happens!), introduces actual people who lived there in that time and gives students a kind of personal connection to the characters. It also includes English language essays about the region and its features. My daughter's teacher is threatening to 'let them' read Harry Potter in Latin, next semester. I hope my kid picks up this language faster than I do, or she can kiss that 99 good-bye.

    The best

    This is by far the best Latin learning series I have ever been priveledged to pick up. The book begins with no English - it begins with pictures and short Latin phrases and tells the story of a family and their sevent, cook, and dog during their daily activities... within 5 minutes the reader can read and comprehend a paragraph of Latin. This book is good for ALL AGES - requires no language skills other than basic English and it will quickly build familiarity with Latin, and explores advanced topics before the end. Satisfying for beginning and intermediate Latin scholars - a must have in the library.
