We have been learning Latin for a few years now. We started out with Latin's Not So Tough during the second half of Jake's second grade year. It was a nice starter program for us. We completed levels 1 and 2, but hit a roadblock in level 3. I don't necessarily think it was the program so much as Jake's learning medium had changed enough that he wasn't as interested in workbooks/worksheets any longer.
This year we have been dabbling with Getting Started With Latin and truly enjoying it. I like that we can do all of the lessons orally and that Jake is doing more than just memorizing vocabulary. Maybe it is just because he's older, but Jake really seems to be retaining much more from his Getting Started With Latin lessons than he did with Latin's Not So Tough.
I would love to win a Rosetta Stone Latin Program to further our Latin studies. Here are the rules should you also choose to enter the contest. But if you don't, that's okay too. Your lack of participation gives me a better chance to win.
Rosetta Stone is the fastest way to learn a language and has been the #1 foreign language curriculum among homeschoolers for a while — and you can WIN the *all new* version 3 Rosetta Stone Homeschool LATIN program… FOR FREE! This is the first year you can get Latin in the brand new Version III update.
This is a $259 program (and believe me it’s worth every penny!)This is a computer based curriculum and Rosetta Stone will also include a headset with microphone, and a supplementary “Audio Companion” CD so you can practice lessons in the car, on the go, or where-ever! Students participate in life-like conversations and actually produce language to advance through the program. Rosetta Stone incorporates listening, reading, grammar, vocabulary and writing along with speaking and pronunciation lessons. For parents, the new Parent Administrative Tools are integrated into the program to allow parents to easily enroll up to ten students in any of 12 predetermined lesson plans, monitor student progress, grade completed work (the program grades the work automatically as the students progress- I love that!), and you can view and print reports for transcripts. Homeschooling a lot of kids at your house? This program is designed to enroll and track up to ten students (five users on two computers) and will work for nearly all ages — from beginning readers up to college students.
