Has anyone used Teach Yourself Beginner's Latin with their child?


Recommended Posts

We are looking forward to after GSWL, which we love. I found Teach Yourself Beginner's Latin on Amazon and then picked up a copy at my library, and it really does look great. I worked through the first 3 chapters on my own and really feel it's doable for upper elementary, with teacher guidance of course.


Has anyone used this? We're debating between this and Latin Prep by Galore Park.

Well, i think it's a bit of both. There is a fair amount of translation, but then he explicitly discusses, for example, direct objects and their endings. Perhaps I haven't seen it taught another way? I do know from perusing Wheelocks that he focuses a lot more on "this is the ablative form" and then goes on to discuss it from that angle, whereas this book seems to approach it from a "read this and understand it and then we'll talk about it".


Am I making sense?
