 Our Description

Set includes the Student Book, Teacher's Manual, and Pronunciation CD.

Lowe, Leigh

Prima Latina is a preparatory course for Cheryl Lowe's Latina Christiana. It is intended for teachers with no background in Latin and was developed for children in kindergarten through third grade. The course was designed for students who are still becoming familiar with English grammar. Its goal is to teach and reinforce an understanding of the basic parts of speech while teaching beginner Latin. This provides a child a solid foundation in grammar before moving on to more advanced language and Latin skills.

     Prima Latina is an ideal precursor to Latina Christiana, as the vocabulary and format are similar to the Latina Christiana I text. Prima Latina is accompanied by an audio CD which includes pronunciation direction. Latina Christiana I Flash Cards are an ideal study aid for Prima Latina and a great investment for the parent who intends to use Latina I and II as successor courses.

     Prima Latina uses a clear and systematic format to introduce Latin to young students. The course teaches children in grades 1-3 seven parts of speech, 125 Latin vocabulary words, numbers 1 through 10, basic constellations, and simple introductions to tenses, derivatives, conjugations, and declensions. Each of the 25 new lessons consist of a new grammar skill, five vocabulary words that correspond with the lesson, a Practical Latin phrase, and one line of a prayer that is learned in totality by the end of the chapter. The exercises that accompany each lesson are thorough and provide constant review of materials learned throughout the course. Five review lessons, five tests, an appendix, and an answer key are included.

This item received 5 stars overall. Introductory Latin for Parent and Child

When the description for Prima Latina says it can be used by any parent with *NO* knowledge of the Latin knowledge, it is totally accurate. This course is about seeing the patterns, seeing the connections to the English language and making it as user-friendly as possible.
If one follows the coursebook to a tee,  your child will have a complete introductory foundation for further Latin studies. Based on the relative ease and flexibility of this program, I cannot imagine trying to jump into any higher level Latin studies without this one! This one provides just enough to keep us going without being overwhelming - we are learning but can also back off when we need to and know that we have plenty of time to get it right :)

This item received 4 stars overall. A primary Latin text curriculum

Prima Latina By Leigh Lowe, a complete curriculum, published by Memoria Press. This set of books is intended for grades one through four, but can be used with grades higher then this as the introduction to Latin.

The student work book has 25 lessons, with room to write your answers on each page, and a review every five lessons. There is also a vocabulary appendix in the back of the book. The teacher's manual has the same layout of the student book, but with the answers filled in Full Review...
