The Latin language is precise and rule-based. Learn these rules, and you’ll be on the path to mastering one of the world’s most influential languages.
The Kraken Latin video course provides all the pronunciation and grammar instruction your student needs to start reading Latin stories right away.
Kraken Latin is the best Latin program for middle-school-age kids who want to read real Latin stories and improve their grammar skills — or for older kids who have never had Latin before. Face the beast. Learn its grammatical wiles. Master the kraken.
Students in the logic stage (grades 6-8) are no longer content just to memorize chants and vocabulary—they are ready to master the systems that make Latin the most approachable of the classical languages, and to dive into the stories that make it the most legendary language.
Kraken Latin 1 contains thirty-two weeks’ worth of grammar lessons on all the indicative tenses, demonstratives, and personal pronouns, weekly worksheets and readings, English-to-Latin and Latin-to-English glossaries, reference charts for each lesson, fun activities, and much more. As she walks students through important grammar, Natali H. Monnette helps junior high students towards reading “real” Latin by integrating adaptations and translations from the Vulgate, Roman history, fun original stories, and classical myths.
If you’re an older student wanting to advance from elementary studies or just to begin the study of Latin, Kraken Latin 1 was written for you.
