    Not Written for Children

    IMHO, this book is written WAY above a level intended for children. It is extremely grammar focused and memorization (chant) intensive without much application. Page 1 shows you how to conjugate the verb "to love" (amare). Chapter 3 (page 17) introduces 5 different cases for nouns--really?!--nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, and ablative. Children are expected to chant 10 endings for each noun (5 cases for singular and 5 for plural)—without explanations of the cases and when they are used.

    I studied German for 2 years, so I'm familiar with declensions, but I'd never heard of the ablative case before this book. I also studied Italian for 2 years and am familiar with changing adjective endings to agree with the noun and not using pronouns in the nominative, but I find it frustrating to teach Latin to my 2 daughters (ages 12 and 8) using this textbook series.

    The first 5 vocabulary nouns introduced on page 1 are water, story, gate, forest, and earth. The vocabulary words in Chapter 2 are road (way), ditch, table, goal (turning point), page, dinner, fatherland, breeze, queen, and island. I don't foresee my girls wanting to say "fatherland" or "ditch" in a conversation anytime soon.

    I've previewed through Chapter 12, and I haven't figured out how to say, "I'm hungry" or "I'm tired" or "mother" and "father". Yet, between Chapters 3 and 11, the vocabulary words include maidservant, female servant, male servant, female slave, male slave, female master, male master, and public square. This words would be helpful if I were translating a document perhaps.

    I wish the books were written to teach the grammar in "bite-sized chunks" and provide vocabulary that is more applicable to children.

    I tried this program with my 10-year-old daughter and she completed roughly 1/3 of the lessons. Having no experience with Latin myself, I found the DVD to be helpful. However, my daughter lacked interest and enthusiasm. The program involves a lot of workbook pages and vocabulary memorization. It takes weeks before the information comes together in a meaningful way. Other reviewers seemed to like it for a group, and perhaps that would create more opportunity for interaction. Using it with one student, I found it to be rather dull and monotonous. I can appreciate the potential benefits of learning Latin; however, this program was not a great fit for us.

    We have only done the first lesson, but I can tell you my son loves the Latin For Children program. It is fun but thorough, and seems well thought-out.

    We belong to an all age coop and our 8th grade son has joined the younger kids with this latin currriculum. Everyday he speaks to me new words that he has learned... I am thrilled with this book!
