Latina Christiana Errata: Updated April 2017
Latina Christiana is a perfect step for someone wanting to enrich their child’s education, as well as their own. I love learning alongside my daughter. Because of Latin, I know and understand the English language better than ever. I’m looking forward to continuing to teach my children Latin through Memoria Press!
We are happy with Latina Christiana. I am currently teaching my third child using this full program. The children like having the DVD to watch and have a change of scenery from me teaching everything. It has been a good start to their Latin learning.
My son is using Latina Christiana this year. He enjoys the video sessions and seems to enjoy learning Latin in general. I am learning, too! The only negative, is sometimes the teacher guide does not exactly match up with the student workbook pages, but it’s not been a big issue.
This is our first year using Memoria Press. I have no Latin experience, but teaching Latina Christiana has been simple and enjoyable. The teacher’s manual and pronunciation CD make me well-equipped, and I love that I’m learning Latin alongside my children.

Great program for getting children ready to master Latin in the upper years. It doesn’t seem fancy compared to other curriculums, but it does the job so well! I recommend it all the time. I also heard Martin Cothran say at a conference that teaching Latin would help kill 2 birds with one stone because kids learn so much English grammar along the way. And this is so true! It has saved me so much time in my homeschool day. And now that we are focusing on English grammar this year I’m finding my kids already know a lot!
