Visual Latin DVD—My Review

Bring Latin into your child’s life!
Homeschool parents understand the edge that learning Latin will give to their children. But in the whirlwind of studying math, language arts, history and science, to say nothing of fixing nutritious meals and cleaning homes, Latin studies is one of the first things to go. Now it doesn’t have to be. Introducing Visual Latin, the exciting combination of short vibrant videos and appealing exercises designed to teach your children Latin.

Hear it, see it, speak it, write it, and think it!

Just load the Visual Latin DVD in the player, hit play and your child starts learning; nothing could be easier. Every Visual Latin lesson contains three parts: grammar, sentences, and reading, with the reading segment covering reading, comprehension, and translation.

Videos take less then ten minutes!
In each of the three parts you begin with a video that takes less than ten minutes to watch. Afterwards your child completes the corresponding PDF worksheet to reinforce what he just learned. So Visual Latin is not only visual, it is multi-sensory. You hear it, see it, speak it, write it, and ultimately think it.

My Review

I really didn’t know what to expect when we first loaded up the Visual Latin DVD. The host, Dwane Thomas, is likeable but quirky and an interesting personality to learn from. We started out with the verb conjugation of the “being” verbs and worked our way from there. I sat through the lessons with the kids and enjoyed them, and hopefully have learned from them myself. First you watch a short 5-10 minute video and then there is a corresponding worksheet to review the lesson. In order to begin these lessons though, you have to sign up with the company so that you can download the worksheets. There are 33 pages of worksheets and 26 pages of teacher answers to print.

I know that Latin is not typically a spoken language, but I do feel there is a lot to be learned from it and this DVD was informative. Many root words and parts of words come from Latin and so it was easy to figure some of these out and apply them. My children are 11 and 9 and both are “getting it” and were able to follow along with the videos and worksheets.

This DVD would be great in a school setting or homeschooling environment. You can buy it here!
