Latin Everywhere, Everyday - Teacher Edition
While we recommend this program for ages 10 and older, with more parental involvement younger children could have a blast learning these phrases.
About Latin Everywhere, Everyday:
Let's be honest, shall we? Who really wants to study Latin, describe grammatically the parts of speech, and explain the inflection and syntactical relationships? Isn't it difficult enough to stay motivated as you master conjugating verbs for a language that is living? And if Latin is a dead language, what is the point? If you embrace classical learning, then you may be dumbfounded to hear that many of us are weary of feeling the pressure to study Latin. Dead or not, Latin underpins many languages; over half of our English words have their base in Latin. Plus, we encounter its abbreviations every day in the form of lbs, pm, even etc.
So, while our family has dutifully worked our way through a couple of programs, and we continue to sell what we consider the best for those of you determined to master this subject, the truth is, all we have ever really wanted for our family is to have a nodding acquaintance with Latin terms that they will encounter in day-to-day living. Previously there was no painless way to accomplish this, but now there is.
Latin Everywhere, Everyday is an easy-to-use workbook of Latin phrases and mottoes for children 10 and older. Your children will learn 180 Latin phrases, one a day, and you will finish this program in a year. Your children will also learn Latin mottoes of states, colleges, and organizations and maybe for the first time they will fully understand the 29 common Latin abbreviations we use every day. Lots of exercises make mastery easy. The accompanying information is interesting, the illustrations intriguing, and there are plenty of exercises to bring it all home.
