Song School Latin Review

Pin It

I am completely on board with the classical model of education.  I love everything about it from the use of living books and primary source documents, to the studying of history chronologically.  It is a fairly rigorous method, but I feel relatively confident about teaching it.  There is just one facet of classical education that stumps me...Latin

A key component of classical education is the study of ancient language, most commonly Latin.  Needless to say, I know nothing about Latin.  I figured that I would wait a few years and then get my kids a book that they could pretty much teach themselves from.  Well, my ideas changed once I heard some other bloggers talking about this neat little program called Song School Latin.

To read my review of Song School Latin, head on over to The Curriculum Choice!

  2. Do you think I need to get the student and teacher edition, or would I be okay with just the student? I'm like you, not fluent in Latin. =)

    1. For Song School Latin 1, I don't think that you would need the Teacher's Manual for the sake of the answers, but it does include activity pages for each lesson and I think it is worth getting for that purpose. If your child likes doing activity sheets (my daughter loves them...my son doesn't =) then I would get it. So, recommended but not necessary!
