BOOKS AND MATERIALS

Prima Latina Student Book I

  • Author: Leigh Lowe
  • ISBN: 1930953518        
  • Supplier: Rainbow Resource

Memoria Press, Louisville, KY; 2003, 2002; non-reproducible; 128 pages; 25 lessons with 5 review lessons coinciding with 5 unit tests in teacher manual; same appendices as TM.

 

From the teacher manual:  Prima Latina is a preparatory course for Cheryl Lowe’s Latina Christiana.  It is intended for teachers with no background in Latin…. The course was designed for students who are still becoming familiar with English grammar but are competent readers.  Its goal is to teach and reinforce an understanding of the basic parts of speech while introducing Latin vocabulary and grammar….  The course teaches students seven parts of speech, 125 Latin vocabulary words, numbers 1 through 10, basic constellations, and simple introductions to tenses, derivatives, conjugations, and declensions.
 
We use this program to introduce Latin, but even more so to solidify a student’s basic English grammar skill, and help the entire family learn what tenses, derivatives, conjugations and declensions are—in English grammar as well as Latin!  This is a very clear, concise, easy-to-use program.  Their stated goals for the course are to 1) learn basic Latin alphabet and pronunciation of vowels and consonant sounds, 2) pronounce, spell and translate approximately 125 Latin words, 3) learn 25 practical Latin expressions and 4 prayers in full, 4) learn numbers 1 through 10, 5) learn names of popular constellations, 6) understand concept of “derivatives”—English words that are derived from Latin, 7) learn to identify the basic parts of speech including verbs, nouns, preposition, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, and conjunctions; recognize that “conjugating” is associated with verbs; recognize that “declining” is associated with nouns; memorize 1st declension noun endings, memorize 1st conjugations verb endings.
 
For quarterly reporting, enter the beginning and ending lessons you covered for the quarter.  For a work sample, copy the latest lesson or test.

134 lessons.  An answer key is included in the back of the book.  Each lesson is a bare bones presentation of a new word and the grammar needed to support it, then ten sentences to translate from Latin to English and/or English to Latin.  Latin expressions are discussed at some little length throughout the text to enhance cultural literacy (!).  
 
Mr. Linney outlines the best way to use this book on pages xiii-xv of the text itself.  Free recordings of Mr. Linney speaking each word and exercise aloud (and a host of other resources) are available online at www.gettingstartedwithlatin.com.
