Latin comes to life....

For years now we have used Latina Christiana and Prima Latin. Great Programs, but we were tired of them.
We asked around.  What were we to use instead.
Cambridge Latin we were told by 3 different families. Oh Ok, I can look into that.
So of I went finding further reviews and checking up forums. Finding out the price of the Books..and hang on, there is an online section. Lets look...
So I began clicking away. I was hooked, how much fun.
I was keen to show Brid Dermot anyone who happened to be around. I even showed a friend who was having coffee with me, while the girls chatted in another room.

Ok, we begin our official school year here in Australia and it came time to start Latin..
We both dashed to the computer...By the way, who is being educated here, Brid or Me???
We read the material and translated the Latin quite quickly. Thank you Latina Christiana, you have given us a great grounding in Latin.
We were laughing and enjoying the awkwardness of the language and how it translates.
We declined 1st, 2nd, 3rd, we found nominative singulars and plurals, and lots more. It was loads of fun. Brid certainly is very content but without a grounding in it, we probably would be a little lost.
Amongst all the learning and reinforcement  of the language, there is also fun online activities. There are links to show you about the different areas of cities they are discussing. Its well worth the look to gel History and Latin together.

We are off to a good start with Latin. Thank you to my dear friends who have shared the love of Cambridge Latin with me and my family.


  1. Glad to hear you and Brid are enjoying the Cambridge Latin course!
