teamturner Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 I am just about ready to purchase First Form Latin but for some reason I'm still unsure. We have done all three levels of Latin For Children but feel like we need a better foundation and have not retained as much as I think we should have. I like how First Form goes back to the beginning and I think it will be a good review. It seems like there is very little translating, which to some extent is a welcome idea to me. (please correct me if I'm wrong) LFC had a lot of translation that was pretty challenging and discouraged 2 of my 3 older kids. We had to use the answer key a lot! A bit of background, all three of my older kids study Latin together. The younger one hates it and hasn't retained very much. One of ds loves Latin and the other tolerates it. I'm a bit discouraged that with First Form we won't finish it until 10th grade and would need an upper level Latin after that, isnt' that correct? I would very much like to be done w/Latin studies by that time so we could move on to a modern language. I really don't want a Latin program with too much fluff, although I wonder if First Form is too dry. Any thoughts? Thanks for any help!
