Latin Road- A Good Curriculum Choice

I used Latin Road for 3 years. My boys were RATHER successful with it, not to mention my son still remembers all of his Latin even after three years without cracking a book! He was required to take a college placement test at the college he’s attending, so they could find out which course would be applicable for him. He passed all 3 levels of Latin, and began the university in Junior level! Yippee! He liked Latin Road so much that he has continued his Latin studies in college.



Latin Road applies quite a lot of memorization, rote learning, flash cards, and practice, practice, practice. It needed just as much time as a math program, not to mention we were required to undertake some Latin translating every single day, just as you complete math problems every single day. It seemed to be highly mom demanding, as you say. I used to dedicate approximately two hours on weekends getting my own lessons finished, ın order that I could understand the best way to teach it the next week.  Her lessons are clearly arranged, as well as I in no way had any sort of difficulties knowing what to undertake on a daily basis. It ended up being QUITE obvious, as well as each lesson was around the equal amount of time of time to accomplish, and each lesson was very clearly marked.

Again, almost like a math book, I think! It was developed for homeschoolers, so that’s part of why it was so straightforward to use. Each day we would do some flash cards, recite some memorized lesson or maybe read aloud, and also do some copy work or translating. It was a LARGE AMOUNT of work, and challenging, however my boys truly seemed to like it, and it certainly paid off in the end.


Hope that helps!
