“Latin should be begun as early as possible…”
– Dorothy Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learning
We don’t teach babies grammar. Your child’s first experience with their native language was one of love, of natural cultivation. They began by learning words for people, objects, and their natural environment and experience. As they grew, you read to them – first, simple rhymes and stories with lots of pictures, later, longer stories that captured their imagination and delighted them with the beauty of language. Learning Latin should be no different.
Through classic stories you already know and love, we will open the door for your child into the riches of the Latin language. During each storytime, we introduce a few new Latin words to gradually lead your child to Latin comprehension.
