My 9th grade son will be completing Spanish II this year. I plan to have him learn Latin beginning next year. I'm looking for recommendations on curriculum. What have you used? Would you use it again? How much was it? What items are necessary to have a successful year?

Welcome to our community! :)

 

I've used the Henle Latin series. It's mastery-based and great for self-learners. If you're a member, or plan to be for 2014-2015, I have a self-paced class in my members area that serves as an introduction to Latin and leads into the Henle texts after some basic grammar instruction.

 

Here's more info about Henle Latin: http://www.memoriapr...n/henle-latin-i

 

Warmly,

Dianna

Thanks so much! I will research this series. We are not members, and I don't know for sure if we are going to go that route; we need to do something different next year than we have been doing though. Abeka curriculum for our son is not working like it did for our daughter. I'm thankful that there are other options, but it can be overwhelming for me at times too. :) Thanks again!

I've used Latin for Children. I don't have a background in Latin, so this was very helpful with CDs and DVDs.

The same people who do Latin for Children have an older series: Latin Alive.

Classical Academic Press uses the classic pronunciation and does explicit teaching. I've been happy with Latin for Children and now working in Latin Alive A.

We use Latina Christiana and they have DVD's that our 14 year old daughter likes, along with workbooks, etc.  We will be doing Year 2 in another few weeks.

Karen, are you talking about my Latin class? If so, ask her to sign up in the Latin class forum (it's in the member's area). I'll start as soon as I have enough students.

 

Warmly,

Dianna

I didn't want to use Christian Latin - only secular materials.  I found that limited my choices.  My eldest is using Galore Park Latin.  He's only been doing it for 2 weeks, but it's going quite well and easy to understand from the books so far.  There's a LOT crammed into those little books.
