Latin is an elegant and ancient language that has been studied for many generations. It is also quite alive in our culture, and in the languages we speak today. You will be surprised at what you learn in each new chapter of Latin Alive! Book One. As the first text in a three-year series, it is a rigorous and thorough introduction to this great language, and is designed to engage the upper school (middle and high school) student. Brimming with relevant facts and stories this text offers something for everyone.
This first text in the Latin Alive! series serves as both an introduction for the middle school and high school student who has not previously studied Latin, and also a "bridge text" into more advanced study for students who have studied Latin in grammar school. If your student has gone through all of the Latin for Children Primers, you will find this first year of Latin Alive! to be one of accelerated review, with greater explanation of grammar and increased reading and translation.
