||Matin Latin 1 (Matin Latin)
Karen Craig - Canon Press
A course developed by an expert for use by those who aren't (ie mothers who never learnt Latin but would like their children to do so). After years of teaching Latin and English in day school and homeschool, Karen Craig has produced one of the easiest, step-by-step approaches to beginning Latin. Each segment explains English grammar first, then the Latin, progressing in clear, short steps. Children have been delighted with the format and clarity of the lessons. The teacher's editions offer not only answers but specific guidance and hints for every lesson. Matin Latin 1 works through the basics of nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, and prepositions, with simple translations throughout, including two short Julia stories to close. The appendices offer additional exercises, along with a complete glossary for the text.
