TOS Crew Review: Visual Latin

Learning another language has ALWAYS
intimidated me.

So thinking about TEACHING
another language to my kiddos
frankly frightens me...

HOWEVER,
after receiving 10 lessons from...
...Visual Latin to review,
my fears about teaching an unfamiliar language
have been GREATLY eased.

*********************************************

The way the Latin lessons are set up is
a series of short video clips,
followed by a short bit of worksheet activity.
 
(You can see a quick video explanation of the
what Visual Latin is all about by clicking HERE.)

The convenience of having the lessons as a series 
of short video clips lets your kiddo move
at his or her own pace,
viewing the teaching segments
as little or as much as they need to.

Also, Professor Dwane Thomas,
the guide through the lessons...
...is very clear and entertaining.


He makes Latin FUN and USEFUL!

*********************************************


Because Visual Latin has a focus on READING Latin,
using this program only enhances a
kiddos' English and Vocabulary skills,
and their future language learning experiences.


As long as your kiddo is reading,
he/she can use the program.

Recommended for ages 9 and up,
my 9 year old daughter is excited about
using this program,
so she can teach her friends a 
"secret" language!


This program can also be used to achieve
the oh-so-important 
High School Credit as long as it is used
along with a couple of supplements...
(Read more about that by clicking HERE.)

being purchased and whether or not the DVD

To save a bit of money,
you may want to purchase
the instant downloads instead,
which are $25 per section...
(There are three sections currently available.)
