If you are a homeschool parent who is interested in teaching your child Latin but you were either too intimidated to try it or just did not feel qualified enough, you will LOVE this program! The program is very easy to teach because it is done for you. The DVD lessons are just like having a Latin teacher in your home with you. The teacher is very easy to understand and follow along with. You can take the lessons at your own pace and can always pause or back up the DVD to repeat something you didn't understand. The Teacher's Guide gives you all of the answers and there are several free resources and teacher helps available on the website. If you have something you don't understand you are encouraged to contact Calssical Academic Press and they will help you in solving your problem. There are a few errors in the textbook, but there is this document available on the website under free resources correcting the errors for you.
I you are a homeschooled child whose parents want you to learn Latin but you think it is going to be boring, you will LOVE this program! The teacher on the DVD is very interesting to listen to and also pretty funny at times. The lessons offer plenty of practice and review to keep reminding you what you have already learned. There are plenty of examples of why Latin is important to learn and how it is still alive today mixed with fun and interesting information about Roman history and culture. My 14 year old daughter said, "Wow, Latin is a lot more interesting and fun than I thought it would be!"
