Consumable Workbook, 105 pages

Friendly to teachers, parents, and students who have no background in Latin, this is written so the teacher can learn along with the student(s). Thirty lessons are covered in one year, and the audio CD walks you though each lesson. Uses the ecclesiastical pronunciation. Non-consumable.

In an effort to make Latina Christiana I flow more seamlessly into their Form Latin series, Memoria Press revised the material in 2015, making these changes to the 4th edition:

  • Removed instruction about personal pronouns
  • Added instruction on perfect and future tense
  • Added new lessons
  • Reordered lessons
  • Included additional practice

There is an optional history component to Latina Christiana I taken from Chapters 1-13 of Famous Men of Rome (reading selections not included in LCI). Drill questions are included in Latina Christiana I, as well as a history test. Learning the history and culture of Rome is often a great motivating factor for students studying the Latin language.
