This engaging, simple, and fun DVD follows the lessons in Song School Latin, Book 2. The DVD’s twenty-four episodes (one for every non-review chapter) feature a lively magistra and magister who narrate the vocabulary practice, simple grammar lessons, and derivative training. Simeon the Monkey makes appearances in each episode, delighting students with his animated story, which features numerous vocabulary words. There is also an animated derivative “river,” which highlights the way in which Latin words have come into various languages, including English, Spanish, and French.
