Welcome to I Speak Latin, the innovative elementary Latin curriculum for young learners by classical educator Andrew Campbell. I Speak Latin’s proven teaching method uses students’ natural capacity for language learning to help them master Latin vocabulary and syntax quickly and easily, without tedious worksheets, charts, or chants.
I Speak Latin engages students right from the start, getting them up out of their seats to learn verbs through physical motions. Students soon converse about their daily lives—family, pets, sports, clothing, food, weather—all the while building a rich and varied Latin vocabulary. Each lesson teaches a single grammar point and introduces vocabulary in natural groupings, based on context.
I Speak Latin is perfect for homeschools, co-op classes, cottage schools, or traditional classrooms. Complete scripts, pronunciation guides, and teaching tips make it easy for anyone to teach Latin.
This edition teaches Restored Classical pronunciation. See the Ecclesiastical Edition for ecclesiastical pronunciation.
