Ginevra Posted June 6, 2009 Share Posted June 6, 2009 I am excited to try Latin with ds9 and just got my Latin for Children program. But, honestly, I'm not sure how to set up the lessons. Especially in the early part, where you have to learn the pronunciation and understand endings. Ds is not language-intuitive (he is a math guy) and I'm worried about making a big mess of trying to introduce the program. Add to that the classical vs. ecclesiastical pronunciation. Personally, I would prefer ecclessiastical; it makes more sense, it's easier to see the relationships to words we use. I was not taught Latin specifically, but what small Latin I picked up was always given the ecclesiastic pronunciation; I didn't even know there was a variation. But on the DVD's, the "teacher" uses classical. Again, I'm concerned that ds will be confused. So, how do you set up your lessons? And how do you spread out, or get through that beginning foundation? And how do you cope with the pronunciation issue? :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
