Cambridge Latin


Recommended Posts

Cambridge was designed to start from around age 11 or 12 (I was in one of the early classes to use it in the UK in the 70s). Later, Minimus was introduced as a precursor, but it's not necessary to do it: Cambridge assumes no previous knowledge.


Personally, I find it easier, as a non-specialist, to teach from a more grammar-focused programme, rather than Cambridge, but YMMV.


Best wishes

The class we started Cambridge in had some 9 year olds and I think some 9 year olds would be capable of starting Cambridge at home, as long as you didn't have a preconceived idea of a fast pace. It can be done quite slowly and still be engaging, because the stories are interesting.
