Latin Alive Syllabication

Recommended Posts

At the beginning of each chapter, the student is supposed to break the new vocabulary words into syllables complete with marking short vs long. I understand this would be crucial for parsing out pronunciation.


But if you have the DVD's (and thus access to learning correct pronunciation), is there a reason to continually do this beyond cementing the rules? I have a child who doesn't do tedious repetition well (mastery and move on).

I'd just do read through the vocab orally together, before watching the DVD. If you/she has questions, discuss it and figure it out. Then watch the DVDs to check whether you were correct.


The activity is worth-while, IMHO, but changing it to an oral one makes it quick and painless in comparison.
