Latin for Children, Primer A DVD & CD Set, which contains three DVDs and two chant CDs, offers chapter-by-chapter training by author Dr. Christopher Perrin along with two students. Clear, whiteboard grammar lessons are given from his cozy office, and the memory page is chanted in front of a big stone fireplace complete with motions and songs/chants led by students. Each twenty-minute-average lesson corresponds to the weekly chapter in Latin for Children, Primer A and features the chanting and singing of vocabulary, including noun declensions and verb conjugations, and clear grammatical explanations. The text from the book appears on the screen as the material is presented, making it easy to follow along aurally and visually. The DVD can be used to prep the teacher for the lesson, to help a student catch up on a missed lesson, to help a student maintain or catch up over the summer, or be used with a substitute when the teacher is absent. The audio CDs capture Dr. Perrin and his students pronouncing and rhythmically repeating each grammar chart and vocabulary word in the primer—first the Latin, then the English equivalent. This is an incredible tool to use for fun memorization. It contains all 240 vocabulary words chanted and sung in both the classical and ecclesiastical pronunciations. Take it wherever you go!
