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.
