When Kira first learned she would be studying Latin this year, she squealed with joy! But when Kira then learned it would be through Memoria Press, she could barely contain herself. Kira loved when we reviewed the Illiad And Odyssey Complete Set from, Memoria Press last year.
As you can clearly see, Kira was very excited when the package from Memoria Press arrived!!!
It was no surprise to be completely impressed with the contents of the box! This First Form Latin Complete Set is truly COMPLETE!
And as with all boxes which enter into our household, the Memoria Press First Form Latin Complete Set box was warmly received by our cat, χιόνι. Although his name may be Snow in Greek, it certainly seemed as though he was more interested in learning Latin!
I am lucky in that Kira is one of those amazing children who actually love to learn. My little sponge tries to absorb all she can, every where that she is able to. At first, I had trepidation, as Kira has been studying both Spanish and Greek. I feared introducing a third language might cause confusion. However, I was pleasantly surprised when Kira expressed how much fun she has been having learning Latin with Memoria Press and First Form Latin!
Although every homeschool style and schedule is different, we do language studies daily. Kira opted to do her language lessons first thing each day. This typically will only take an hour to two hours per day. Typically every lesson incorporates new words, which, of course, are on flash cards to study and learn. Here is perhaps our most fun part! This is where we get my husband to participate! Now, let me just say, this man has one wicked sense of humor. Despite the fact we have the pronunciation CD that comes with the First Form Latin Complete Set, my husband decided he would pronounce things his way. This truly made for comical review sessions each day! Each evening, just prior to dinner, Chuck would grab the cards and review them with Kira. And each time, Kira would correct his atrociously hilarious pronunciations thereof!
In hindsight, I should have perhaps made a video of this hilarious daily exchange. It made my night, every day!
Memoria Press and First Form Latin make learning Latin a breeze. Kira has not complained once. In fact, she actually has been bragging about how much she has learned and how much she is enjoying learning Latin!
Presently, Kira is pleasantly proud of all she has accomplished thus far with what she has learned while using the Memoria Press First Form Latin Complete Set. Kira found it fascinating how many of our own words are derived from Latin. Kira has stated it will help her more in her language lessons in the future as well.
Student Text – A beautiful book to accompany the workbook, full of everything your child needs to complete his/her lessons. Kira loves that it includes historical Latin phrases as well as the origins of these phrases.
Student Workbook – This workbook contains approximately 4-6 pages of exercises per lesson. The lessons are laid out in a way to ensure your student learns. Kira says her favorite part of the work book is translating the Latin sentences into English, and diagraming the Latin sentences.
Quizzes And Tests Book- This will help enforce your child’s learning and comprehension. Kira expressed that the tests and quizzes ensure she is mastering the lessons, and said they are challenging but not impossible.
A Pronunciation CD – Comprehensive CD containing all of the vocabulary and grammar within each lesson. This is a brilliant way to be sure you are actually saying everything right!
Flashcards – These contain all of the forms, vocabulary and phrases for each lesson. We had way too much fun with these every evening. Upon reaching her last set of cards, Kira was in shock that she was at the end of the set. I think she has enjoyed the cards the most. Especially the special interaction time with her hilarious father!
DVD – Set of 3 Discs featuring former Highlands Latin School teacher Glen Moore. We cannot rave enough about the DVDs. These are absolutely fabulous.
The Teacher Key- This will help you grade all quizzes and tests.
Teacher Manual – A comprehensive manual to make teaching not only easy, but incredibly fun!
