-Parents and Teachers-
Good News!! You CAN teach Latin even if you have never studied it before! Schola Publications introduces The LATIN Road to English Grammar, a comprehensive language curriculum designed for anyone who desires to gain a better knowledge of English through the study of Latin. This curriculum is so complete that you can learn and teach Latin at the same time - you learn along with your students. All the materials you need are included for easy learning and teaching: textbook, worksheets, tests, vocabulary cards, answer keys, lesson plans, verb charts, audio CD’s for pronunciation and teacher training DVDs.
During the course of study each student develops his own Latin-English handbook. All information concerning grammar and vocabulary is presented in a balanced combination of oral and written work. Students will hear, say, see, read, and write Latin and English constantly. In this way all students can learn with their strengths and yet also practice their weaknesses. This multisensory method of learning does far more to instill the information in the student’s mind than a mere workbook method. Everything is clearly defined, and, equipped with the essential components, any student is able to analyze both English and Latin.
Did you know that you need a vocabulary at least 10 times larger for thinking than you do for talking? The best service you can perform for yourself is to learn how to study and how to absorb the greatest amount of learning in the shortest amount of time. The study of Latin can help you do this. It trains your memory, gives you increased word power, develops your reasoning powers, strengthens your reading skills, and helps you form a finely structured English vocabulary. Just as phonics help you understand what words are, Latin helps you understand what words mean. And you don’t have to wait until high school to study Latin. The LATIN Road to English Grammar has been designed to begin as early as 5th/6th grade, allowing you to be finished with your high school foreign language requirement before entering high school. The entire study is done in three years, each volume covering one year.
For those students in 3rd/4th grade, you can now prepare for The LATIN Road to English Grammar with our one-year introduction called The BRIDGE to the Latin Road. The BRIDGE to the Latin Road gives the teacher and student not only a good working introduction to Latin in the form of common Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes, but a solid introduction to all the sentence structures that will later be encountered in Latin translations in The LATIN Road to English Grammar, all taught on DVD.
