Latin for Children Primer A Video & Audio



A yearlong course for students in grades 4-

This newly revised edition of the teaching video is compatible with previous versions of Latin for Children Primer A text.

Latin for Children Primer A Streaming Video & Audio (or 8-DVD & 2-CD Set), now in high-definition, offers chapter-by-chapter video teaching by author Dr. Christopher Perrin. Clear, engaging grammar lessons are given from his cozy classroom, and the memory pages are chanted with motions and songs/chants led by students. Each lesson is 20–25 minutes and corresponds to the weekly chapter in Latin for Children Primer A. It features the chanting and singing of vocabulary, including noun declensions and verb conjugations, and clear grammatical explanations. The audio files (or CDs) capture the teacher and students pronouncing and rhythmically repeating each grammar chart and vocabulary word in the primer—first the Latin, then the English equivalent. The chants are an incredible tool to use for fun memorization and contain all 240 vocabulary words chanted and sung in both the classical and ecclesiastical pronunciations. The new, revised edition of the teaching video & audio will correspond with previous versions of the Latin for Children Primer A text. The streaming option provides the convenience of instant access, as well as desktop, smart TV, and mobile viewing capabilities. Streaming access lasts for the life of the product.

The Latin for Children Primer A Video & Audio (or DVD & CD Set) is also a valuable tool for the classroom! It can be used as:

  • A helpful resource for Latin teachers to prepare for a lesson
  • A substitute teacher when the regular teacher is away
  • A helpful resource for a student catch up on a missed lesson
  • A helpful resource for a student to maintain skills or catch up to the class over the summer
  • An addition to a summer school course
  • A library item helpful to the struggling Latin student or the curious parent

Designed, revised, and continually sharpened since 2001, the award-winning Latin for Children curriculum continues to be a strong, inviting, and creative program designed to introduce students as young as fourth graders to Latin. It incorporates elements that will engage students of every learning style. When used as a whole, this series trains students in grammar, vocabulary, and English derivatives in a lively, interactive way that is perfectly suited to students in the grammar stage. The Latin for Children series is taught directly to the child and is a perfect choice for teachers and parents, including those who will be learning along with their students.
