Over half of the English language is derived from Latin aquarium aqua, water fable fabula, story clamor clamo, I shout dolphin delphinus, dolphin narrator narro, I tell These and thousands of other words we use every day keep this "dead" language a language of kings and poets, of scrolls and secrets alive. And this means that when we study Latin, we're not just learning about Rome we're learning about ourselves. Rediscover this time-honored language, which led classical education pioneer Dorothy Sayers to declare that "Latin should be begun as early as possible ... when the chanting of "Amo, amas, amat" is as ritually agreeable to the feelings as the chanting of "eeny, meeny, miney, moe." In Latin Primer 2, Martha Wilson strengthens elementary school students (grades 4 and up) in the basics they discovered in Latin Primer 1, and leads them steadily into new territory. Revised and expanded, this text spotlights the fundamentals of classical Latin: vocabulary for everyday experiences like names of animals; verb and noun endings; adjective and adverb use; questions and commands; and other early grammar essentials. What's new in the Fourth Edition: First, the Primer 2 now features weekly Word Lists. Just like in Primer 1, students will receive a new Word List every week, rather than once every few weeks. This transition from Primer 1 to Primer 2 has never been more simple or familiar. Second, Canon Press has completely redesigned the layout. While older editions were arranged by category a word list section, exercise section, and test section the new edition has been arranged in a simple lesson-by-lesson format. For example, all of Lesson 1 s components are grouped together, back-to-back. When you finish one lesson, you re on to the next. No more flipping back and forth between sections everything you need for each lesson is right at your fingertips, whether you re the teacher or the student! Third, they ve added new exercises to every lesson, giving students greater opportunity to practice and review their Latin skills, as well as providing teachers with more material to gauge their students level of understanding. Fourth, the teacher s edition has been significantly expanded. Mirroring the student book, it includes not only the answers, but also weekly quizzes and new weekly teacher s lesson notes. The lesson notes have been redesigned to explain the standard flow of every lesson and offer tips on preparation and focus for everything from weekly derivatives to unit goals. Whether you re a homeschooling parent or a classical school teacher, these convenient notes will save time, provide a clear direction for the course, and better help your students grasp the language. And last, but not least: you ve heard that you can t judge a book by its cover, but who doesn t like to use a good-looking book? Latin Primer 2 will debut in its new perfect bound form with perforated exercise pages for easy grading."
