Over half of the English language is derived from Latin.
clamor—clamo, I shout
narrator—narro, I tell
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, amatis 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 package is the complete Latin Primer 1 (3rd edition). It's everything you need to learn (or teach) beginning Latin.
This package contains the following items:
- Student Text (perfect bound, 180 pages)
- Teacher's Edition (perfect bound)
- Audio Guide (audio download) - This audio guide download is a single mpeg-4 audio file, which means it is very large. You can navigate the file in iTunes by clicking the "Chapters" tab on the menu bar. This enables you to move from week to week, rather than just restarting the file from the beginning every time you play it.
