Latin pronunciation?

RobinL in Canada

Recommended Posts

My youngest son will be 13/ gr 8 next year, and we're planning to begin Latin then; he has only studied Latin and Greek roots so far (and a bit of Greek). Way back when, my older sons used some of Latina Christiana and Lingua Angelica, and I do have a preference for the ecclesiastical pronunciation. What I'm wondering is whether it would be feasible to use Latin Alive but use the ecclesiastical rather than classical pronunciation. I'd like to get the teacher DVDs, but would it end up being too confusing to listen to her use classical pronunciation, but practice ecclesiastical pronunciation ourselves? Or would that just be too problematic and silly, and I should just give in and go with the classical style?
