Starting Latin with 8th or 9th grader

The half dozen

Recommended Posts

I am shocking myself.


For someone who has only read these boards for years, to have two questions in one day is amazing. You can tell by my limited posts I don't do this very often. Thanks for putting up with the questions.


What would you use if you are starting a 8th or 9th grader in Latin for the first time? No Latin or foreign language experience. He has used Rod and Staff English for 3rd-8th and done really well. Need something that can be mostly self taught.

Galore Park's So You Really Want to Learn Latin 1

Galore Park's Latin Prep 1

Lively Latin


I would suggest either of the Galore Park texts for your ds. LP 1-3 covers the same amount of material as SYRWTL Latin 1-2. My dd likes the format of SYRWTL Latin, while LP fits my Ds#1 better. There are samples on the website of both books.
