Product Description

Latin Primer 1: Teacher's Text

Read sample

Over half of the English language is derived from Latin.

amateur -- amo, I love
 -- mons, mountain
 -- patria, native land
 -- specto, I look at
 -- murus, wall

These and thousands of other words we use every day keep this "dead"language
 -- a language of kings and poets, of scrolls and secrets -- alive. And this means that when we study Latin, we're not just learning about Rome -- we're learning about ourselves. Rediscover this time-honored language, which led classical education pioneer Dorothy Sayers to declare that "Latin should be begun as early as possible ... when the chanting of "Amo, amas, amat" is as ritually agreeable to the feelings as the chanting of "eeny, meeny, miney, moe."

In Latin Primer 1 Martha Wilson equips elementary school students (grades 3 and up) with a solid foundation in classical Latin. Newly revised and expanded, this text covers the very basics: vocabulary for everyday concepts like farming, sailing, the human body, constellations, and family; verb and noun endings; and other beginning grammar concepts. This updated teacher's edition includes new teacher's notes, weekly quizzes, and a full glossary.

Those of you familiar with the older editions of Latin Primer 1 are probably wondering what's different about these new editions.

To begin, the content and teaching approach of this third edition is fundamentally the same as before. We have added a few exercises, moved some of the vocabulary around, etc., but these new editions won't force teachers or parents to struggle through a long period of adjustment. If anything, this new edition will be much, much
to use.
