Cheryl Lowe’s clear explanations, easy instructions, and step-by-step approach in the Latina Christiana Complete Set have led thousands of teachers and students to declare, “I love Latin!” With the help of this course, you are sure to love Latin too!
Latina Christiana was designed as a beginning course for students of all ages. This course was specifically written for the teacher with no background in Latin. Students who have completed Latina Christiana are now ready for the First Form Latin Series. Memoria Press recommends students move directly from Latina Christiana to First Form.
There is an optional history component to Latina Christiana taken from Chapters 1-13 of Famous Men of Rome (reading selections not included in LC). Drill questions are included in Latina Christiana, as well as a history test. Learning the history and culture of Rome is often a great motivating factor for students studying the Latin language. For a more in-depth study of Roman history, consider the Memoria Press Famous Men of Rome Set.
