Learning Latin?

Documenta Lingua Latina exarata

Adam and I will be taking on the daunting task of beginning homeschool Latin this summer, so I'd love your recommendations on the best curriculum and good resources. That's why this post, about the Vatican web site in Latin, caught my eye. I can't read the web site yet, but it looks good!

If you are homeschooling in Latin, then you will probably find that the recorded lessons on Latinum are going to be a big help.
You can find the site here:

The site offers hundreds of hours of language lessons, and extensive vocabulary learning help.
All of this, totally free of charge.

Memoria Press has a great curriculum that starts with the very basics and progresses to the point that they recommend Henle Latin and provide study guides for those books.

We are homeschool parents who found the William E. Linney book helpful. It is titled:
'Getting Started with Latin: Beginning Latin for Homeschools and Self-Taught Students of Any Age.

This book is helpful for gaining a taste and appreciation for Latin. I am sure there are much more rigorous books available, but this book is great if you don't have a Latin background yourself and want to teach it to your youngster.

Good luck with the summer lessons!
