Hours and Hours of Free Latin Audio

 

There simply is nothing else out there like this.  If you want to increase your audio input, and thereby improve comprehension and pronunciation, then spend time every day listening to Bible.is.

My kids fall asleep listening to the Bible in Latin.  Sometimes I play it as they wake up in the morning.

I want my kids to be able to read in Latin before high school.  (I really don’t care at all about high school credits in Latin.  By high school, I want them working on another language).  They learn the grammar from me when I am home.  I teach them the same content contained in Visual Latin.  But, just learning the grammar will never make them fluent.  They need more.  That is where Bible.is comes in.  I turn it on as my kids fall asleep.  A few of mine don’t fall asleep rapidly.  They lie in bed wide awake for a long time.  Like me, their minds wander.  The mind of one of my daughters wanders into anxiety.  She will get out of bed these days and ask me to turn on the Vulgate if I forget.

By the time my kids are in high school, they will have listened to hours of Latin and they will know quite a bit about the New Testament as well.

When learning a foreign language, you must absorb an enormous amount of content on the road to fluency.  I know of no curriculum (including Visual Latin) that can accomplish this alone.  You will need more than any curriculum can provide.

Listening to the Bible in Latin is one way to provide that extra content.
