Each winter and spring, I begin to hunt for curriculum for the next year. I look for great deals on new and used books, but my first step is always to decide on what subjects we're going to tackle. Most of us have heard that learning a foreign language is valuable, but why would we choose Latin ? Many of us didn't study it when we were young, so why would it be valuable?
We decided to study it for the first time this year, and here are a few great reasons to do so:
How early can your student start learning Latin ? Many recommend beginning in the third or fourth grade. This age is a wonderful "window" for beginning a foreign language, and this particular language makes studying other languages easier. Older students will find it very valuable as well. It is a wonderful asset that provides so many benefits in different areas of study. We look forward to continuing our study this year. For me, it's my first time studying this wonderful language.
I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.-Gladys
I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!-Sy
I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.-Jim
