Great Latin Adventure FAQ

A.  Big picture

B.  Scope and sequence, pacing and planning

C.  Practical miscellany

A1. In a nutshell, what kind of program is
        The Great Latin Adventure?

A user-friendly Latin curriculum for homeschools,
co-ops or Christian schools

The Great Latin Adventure is a beginner-friendly introduction to Latin for children in grades 4-6 (and some third and seventh graders). The text is written in a friendly voice and features plenty of reinforcement and practice for each grammar concept. Thorough grammar explanations plus a predictable, effective program structure mean that both parents and children understand the material, know what to do, and succeed with the program. GLA features an unusually extensive derivative focus and abundant translation, both into and from Latin. If you're looking for

A2. Is GLA easy to teach?

Very much so

You won't have to reach for another Latin grammar, or for an English grammar, to help you teach GLA. You won't have to make up extra worksheets, or hunt for supplements online. There's nothing you have to print or download. All the worksheets and quizzes you need—a very complete set—are included, along with a pronunciation CD.

Explanations are thorough and complete, so you aren't left with questions.
The chapter structure is predictable, logical, and effective. The teaching notes support you in each chapter, too: they have everything from instructions on flash card use and guidance on chapter priorities, to additional derivatives and notes on individual translation sentences.

Pre-publication users had easy access to me during years of program development, and yet almost no one had questions for me, because GLA is self-explanatory and user-friendly.

A3. Can I use GLA even if I don't know Latin?

Yes, GLA is clear and easy to use for those with no Latin background. You learn along with your child. I don't assume any Latin background and I explain everything you need to know.

A4. Is GLA self-teaching?

In most cases GLA is used with at least some parent/teacher supervision and participation. GLA covers significant grammar and translation, so in order to guide and correct your child, it's best if you know how to do the work that your child does. Unless you already have a strong Latin background, I recommend that you learn how to do this in the case of GLA by doing some or all of the GLA work that your child does.

Invest and reap

As an adult, you can skip the study sheets and derivative worksheets, but you'll
get the best results from GLA with your child if you know the vocabulary and the paradigms, understand the grammar, and can do the translation. This is an investment, but it's an investment in your child's understanding. It won't take you a huge amount of time, as an adult, and it will benefit your children.

Of course, older beginners (for example, seventh graders) can do a great deal of the work in GLA independently, but they will still do their best work if you are able to evaluate their work. Regularly assessing and grading work prevents a multitude of problems from creeping in and growing bigger.

They need you!

GLA equips you to teach and to assess, but like just about every Latin program,
it can't prevent you from needing to do it. It's a rare child who is so self-directed he will correct all his own work accurately, learn from his mistakes, etc., without any parent or teacher help. You're a better teacher than your child is, so your child will learn much more with you as his teacher than on his own!

A5. Does GLA include chants?

GLA teaches a number of paradigms (PAIR-uh-dimes), or tables of noun and verb forms.

In a typical chapter, the student sees the complete paradigm, right in the student book, and practices it both orally and in writing. The student also works with individual noun or verb forms (both in writing and using flashcards), then he applies what he's learned to translation of longer units like sentences. This sequence is effective and easy to understand.

The CD includes clearly-pronounced paradigms. Chanting (oral practice of paradigms) is fun and helpful, and I encourage it.

Practicing paradigms exclusively through oral repetition does not work for all children, though, and that's why GLA also includes written practice for noun and verb paradigms and then for individual forms. Without written paradigm practice some students have difficulty calling to mind an individual noun or verb form when doing written translation work.

A6. GLA is a Christian program. Where is the         Christian material located?

Most of the Christian references in GLA are found in the derivative worksheets. There are more translation sentences with Christian references in later chapters of the program than in earlier chapters. Users who use the derivative worksheets find that the program touches on Christian themes often.

A7. What makes GLA different from other         programs that teach grammar?

More translation—and it's fun

GLA features more translation, sooner, than many other programs. And the sentences in GLA quickly move beyond simple, repetitive sentence patterns. GLA's topic sequence makes it possible for students to translate lively, syntactically varied sentences earlier than usual. This is motivating to students, yet still very doable.

Translation in GLA is done into as well as from Latin, and GLA offers special support for English-to-Latin translation.

Sentence topics are fun. In GLA, fierce wild animals rush forth from flaming forests, pirates capture queens, wolves howl, families wander in distant lands. And God cares for his church. I'm not motivated by "the sailor is on the road to Rome," and children enjoy livelier sentences, too!

Unique features and emphases

In addition to the bi-directional translation, GLA also features

See the sample pages and the Latin curriculum page for more information.

Extensive testing and refining

GLA has benefited from years of pre-publication testing and refining in a variety of settings. I wanted it to be tested and full-featured before asking you to pay for it.

During development, GLA has also been been proof-read repeatedly (some might say obsessively) so that you won't have to find and fix mistakes that it's my job to catch ahead of time. I don't claim there are none whatsoever, but attention and care have been given to this area.

Macron use is consistent, too. You can choose to ignore the macrons, of course—that's completely up to you—but for those who wish to use macrons, it's an exercise in frustration when macrons are used inconsistently. In GLA, the macrons are there on every word, every time, in every context. This way the macrons are able to provide you with consistent pronunciation guidance.

Careful pacing

In GLA, pacing within each chapter is controlled so that students who do the assigned work are well-prepared by each section for what lies ahead. You won't wonder whether your child is ready to move on—you will know. Chapters that need more translation worksheets in order to bring the grammar material home have those extra worksheets, so your child doesn't get stranded, unready to move on.

Topic pacing is also controlled throughout the program, so that the increase in topic difficulty does not outstrip normal child development. If your child is ready to begin GLA, it is very unlikely that he or she will find that Latin stops making sense part way through Level II. That just hasn't been an issue with users. GLA has the reinforcement and review needed for mastery and retention.

Oral and written practice

Oral and written practice both contribute to student success. Practicing paradigms orally only does not enable all students to succeed with written work, and trying to do written work without doing any oral work doesn't work for others. GLA provides oral and written practice of key forms and vocabulary, to help all students succeed. Details on oral work are found in the teaching notes for applicable chapters.

A8. Explain how the grammar lessons and study         sheets work together.

You break up the grammar lessons where you want, and your child fills out the study sheet in stages. The completed study sheet acts as a comprehension check, a review and a summary of the grammar lesson. Here's how it works:

You break up the lesson where you want

Each grammar lesson is ordinarily taught in two or more teaching sessions. You decide where to break the grammar lesson; you go at your child's pace.

Full explanations help you and your child

GLA grammar lessons include examples, illustrations, repetition and review, along with complete explanations. This makes the lessons easier to understand, and more enjoyable. Students feel they really understand, and you won't find yourself wondering whether what you are teaching is meant to become clear at some later point in time!

Your child studies from the shorter study sheet

The question-and-answer study sheet is always shorter than the grammar lesson itself. Once the study sheet is complete, your child will ordinarily refer to it instead of to the grammar lesson while working and studying. This condensed version
of the grammar lesson is easy to study from for your child.

Grammar is reviewed throughout each chapter

The most important study sheet questions are recapped on the translation worksheets. This means your child doesn't just get one chance to learn the grammar lesson/study sheet material; grammar concepts are reinforced
and distilled throughout the chapter.
By the time your child has completed all chapter work and takes his impressive-looking final chapter quiz, he's ready for it.

Important topics from earlier chapters also recur in later chapters as often as needed until they are mastered.

More information on how the parts of GLA work together is found at the sample pages.

A9. When can I read reviews of GLA?

Reviews are coming in now!

GLA was developed over ten years and tested in pre-publication versions, but just came out in late, late 2008. Reviews have started to appear.

User testimonials are here

The user testimonials featured at this site may be helpful to you. They're real users who've had extensive experience with GLA. See the Latin curriculum page and the extended reviews page.

B1. When can my child start GLA?

Most Great Latin Adventure beginners are in grades 4-6. Very well-prepared students may begin in grade 3, with some program modifications. Some seventh graders are good candidates for GLA. See When to start for more information on readiness. See also B4 and B9, below, on later starts.

B2. Does my child need to use another program         before GLA?

No, not at all. GLA begins at the beginning. You can start GLA in grade 4, 5 or 6 and cover plenty of Latin, with no head start.

There's no need to feel pressure about doing Latin in grades K-2/3: it's fun, it can be helpful, but it just isn't mandatory and GLA doesn't assume your child has already done that. For more information on this, see When to start.

If you have used another program, though, don't worry—see the next question. See also B6, below, for information you may find helpful if you would like to do Latin before beginning GLA.

B3. What if my child has already used another         program?

If you've done mainly vocabulary and forms

If your child has used a Latin program that covers primarily vocabulary and paradigms, with minimal grammar and translation, GLA will provide your child with a great deal that is new. The paradigms in GLA may look familiar to your child, but the detailed grammar explanations will help your child understand a great deal that he hasn't yet learned, and the exercises, the derivative work, and the extensive translation will all be new.

Your child will have a head start on paradigms, but using GLA, will start to really use that knowledge in translation context, translating both from and into Latin.

If you've used a program that goes too fast

If you've begun another program and it does cover grammar and translation, but it just goes by too fast—you and your child want more complete explanations, more exercises, more translation for each grammar concept, because you just don't feel you're understanding, or really implementing what you've learned—then GLA will suit you well. You'll meet some concepts you've already touched on, but you'll cover them in more detail and at a pace you'll prefer, with more practice and translation from the beginning.

If you've been stumped by a "reading" program

This type of program—which does not include explicit teaching of noun and verb paradigms in the student text—can be excellent for some students, but other students and parents find this program type confusing. A program with explicit grammar instruction in the student text, like GLA, is easier to use for those who find themselves lost in a "reading" program.

If you do want to use a reading approach because of its particular strengths, but
it just hasn't worked out for you yet, then you might want to do a program like GLA, then add a reading program back in a bit later. Once you feel more grounded in Latin grammar, you may find reading programs easier to use. You'll have the needed context to guide your child.

B4. Does GLA work for older beginners?

Because noun case uses are so central to inflected languages, I've sequenced the grammar topics in GLA so that an unusually full suite of case uses is covered within the first declension. For this reason, while GLA works very well for students in grades 4-6, it has enough meat to be useful for a seventh grader.

(What's a case use? Case uses are a critical feature of Latin grammar. The question of which named noun form, or which case of a noun, is used for which noun jobs is foundational in Latin. To simplify a bit, the ending of a noun shows the noun's case; the case of a noun shows which noun jobs it can do. A statement like "the direct object goes into the accusative case" has articulated a case use.)

GLA covers many of the case uses included in first-year high school study, and yet does so in a way that's simple, accurate, memorable, and comprehensible to middle school students.

Seventh grade beginners can do GLA much faster than younger beginners, of course, so a rapid clip through GLA for an older beginner can be great preparation for more cursory programs aimed at high schoolers.

For more information on older beginners, please see B9, below, for scheduling help, as well as When to start for considerations that might suggest the use of GLA with an older beginner.

B5. Can I use GLA with two children of different         ages at the same time?

If they're both ready to start GLA, and just a year apart, then it will be quite easy to lead them through GLA at the same pace.

If they are two years apart—especially if the younger child is more of a language buff than the older child—then you will still be able to use GLA at the same pace with both children if that's needed for your own sanity (important consideration!), but your older child will not be going at his maximum speed. For example, a fourth grade girl who's a strong reader and raring to go, and a sixth grade boy who is less strong in grammar and reading and would rather do math (or soccer!), could do GLA together.

If your children are more than two years apart, then unless there is a very large aptitude gap in favor of the younger child, you may begin GLA at the same time, but your older child will most likely need and want to do the chapters at a faster clip, and will pull ahead. And you'll want to stay ahead with your older child.

B6. I'd like to do GLA with a child who's ready.        Younger sibling is too young. What do I do        with younger sib?

You don't have to do anything, since you don't have to start Latin in K-2/3 (see Question B2)! But if you'd like, you can teach the vocabulary and paradigms from GLA to give younger sibling a head start on GLA and to keep him from feeling left out of Latin time.

You can do GLA vocabulary and forms just orally, using the CD; or you can add flash cards like the one older sib will be making; or you may in addition have your younger child use the noun and verb blanks and the vocabulary pre-quizzes from older sib's program (feel free to photocopy them for this purpose), to provide written practice in addition to flash card practice.

Once ready to begin GLA, your younger child will still find that lots of material in GLA is new and interesting, since GLA goes way beyond vocabulary and forms,
but he'll have a nice head start.

You could also use one of the commercially available starter programs for children in K-2/3, but the vocabulary you learn by doing one of these programs will not necessarily be repeated in GLA.

B7. How long does GLA take to complete?

This depends on starting age and on the amount of time devoted to Latin, but younger beginners (grade 3 or 4) will generally find that the two levels of GLA last them about two and a half years (at three or four times a week), while beginners in grades 5 and 6 may complete the course in two years or less, and seventh graders, with Latin five times a week, may roar through the program within a year and a half. (Transfer students into a school that uses GLA have done a fast-paced summer study; GLA "accelerates" well.)

These figures assume a nine-month school year; some teach a similar number of hours per year but allocate those hours differently (longer class periods, year-round schooling, etc.)

Co-ops that teach Latin once a week but allocate follow-up tasks to Moms to complete at home are in effect teaching Latin more than once a week, so keep that in mind as you evaluate these scheduling scenarios.

In the teacher’s manual for each level I provide a number of real-world case studies featuring homeschool, co-op and Christian school settings; see also the following questions.

B8. What kind of lesson planning guidance does         GLA provide?

The Master Chapter Plan and other helps

The teacher's manual explains GLA's program and chapter structure, and features
a Master Chapter Plan which gives a nine-teaching-day plan for teaching a typical chapter. The MCP is based on the experience of pre-publication users, so it works. The teacher's manual also contains guidance on preparing to teach a chapter: which parts you will want to look at ahead of time yourself, which parts you can save for a later look, etc. Also, the teaching notes for individual chapters supply additional guidance about the teaching schedule as needed.

B9. How do I speed up my pace through GLA
        for an older student?

I'll give three ways to do this, each one speedier than the one before, and thus each one usable by older students than the one before.

Teach five days a week instead of three

One easy way to accelerate is to teach Latin five days a week instead of three. The plan given in the teacher's manual—the Master Chapter Plan for a typical chapter (see previous question)—assumes nine teaching days spread over three weeks. (This is a good pace for fourth graders and many fifth graders; it gives them time to digest the material.)

For some fifth graders, many sixth graders and all older students, if you teach five days a week instead of three, you can follow the very same teaching sequence as outlined in the MCP, yet complete a typical chapter in two weeks, and complete the program in about two years. (Some chapters take a bit longer than others, as they have more worksheets or longer grammar lessons, but two years is still realistic, as there are twenty-five chapters total in the two levels of GLA.)

To go even faster, cut two days per chapter

If you wish to accelerate even further (for seventh graders or up), I suggest first doing two or three chapters in nine days each, to become familiar with the way the program works. Then cut back by about two teaching days per typical chapter. How? You'll do the grammar lesson (and associated work) in 2-3 days instead of 3-4, mainly by doing the grammar lesson in fewer portions; you'll also spend one less day on the translation worksheets (and associated work) by doing the translation worksheets in larger portions. This will bring you down to seven days, or a week and a half, for a typical chapter, and you should complete both levels of GLA within a year and a quarter or a year and a half. (Again, some chapters take a few more days, as noted in the applicable teaching notes.)

To go still faster, do two days of the MCP per day

If you need to teach GLA even faster (perhaps for an eighth grader), then just do two days of the nine-day plan each day, and you'll do a typical chapter in a week, and will complete the program (both levels) in one year or less.

B10. We're in a hurry. Can we skip the derivative           worksheets?

Well, yes, but most users enjoy them so much that they just budget for them and do them. Yet they can be skipped, because no aspect of the Latin grammar and translation in GLA depends upon them. You would just omit them, and skip the derivative questions on the chapter quizzes. Most users will want to use them.

B11. Can we skip the English-to-Latin chapters?

If you are confident that translation into English is not important for you or your child, then yes, the English-to-Latin chapters can be skipped (or you can do just the vocabulary pre-quizzes or derivative worksheets from those chapters, for review and extra practice). I don't recommend skipping these chapters in most cases, as there's a great deal of value in translating into Latin, but the program would be continuous and coherent without those chapters if you chose to use it that way. (That's because of the way it is structured, with English-to-Latin instruction provided through dedicated chapters.) The English-to-Latin chapters
are clearly identified in the Table of Contents.

Who might skip these chapters?

If you are in a huge hurry to get through GLA, and don't care about translation into Latin, or plan to approach Latin composition in your own way at a later point in time, then you might be a candidate for skipping GLA's English-to-Latin chapters.

Why should we not skip them?

Most students find that their translation from Latin improves when they also translate into Latin, and translation into Latin also provides language production practice which helpfully undergirds modern foreign language study. Translation into Latin is also a good thinking exercise. These are a few of the reasons why in most cases, I suggest that the English-to-Latin chapters not be skipped. The presence of English-to-Latin work is one of the special features of GLA, and many users are glad it's there.

B12. May I see the TOCs to see what GLA covers?

Sure! Here are the links.

Level I Student Book Table of Contents
Level I Teacher's Manual Table of Contents
Level II Student Book Table of Contents
Level II Teacher's Manual Table of Contents

GLA teaches one or more case uses for each of the main Latin noun cases (nominative, genitive etc.), and introduces other grammar topics as well, chosen for their contribution to sentence interest, and selected to keep the new topic pace measured and balanced.

For a brief explanation of "case use," see B4, above.

B13. May I see sample chapters?

Yes, there are sample pages which provide a guided tour of the program. All of Chapter 17 is there, along with Chapter 4 and parts of Chapter 22.

B14. Does GLA teach English grammar?


GLA teaches the English grammar you will need in order to do the Latin work. It's fully integrated. You will not need to refer to another English grammar for any topics GLA covers so long as you and your child know your parts of speech when you begin GLA. After using GLA, you will very likely understand many English grammar topics better than ever before.

Yet consider . . .

In most cases, I believe that students benefit from beginning their English grammar study a bit ahead of Latin grammar. You may also want to pursue English grammar more rapidly than is possible in the context of a Latin program. That really depends upon your own English grammar goals. Many users do choose to do a separate English grammar program along with GLA. You won't need to be dipping into it in order to understand GLA, but it will help you make rapid progress in English grammar while taking Latin at a pace suitable to Latin.

B15. With GLA do I need a separate English           vocabulary program, too?

GLA has very extensive derivative coverage. In most Latin-to-English chapters, your child will learn ten to fifteen new derivatives (early chapters have shorter lists). Derivatives are defined and illustrated, not just listed, and your child will do a full complement of exercises, including FITB sentences. See the sample derivative worksheet at the sample pages to take a look.

Whether this is as much English vocabulary work as you want or need depends
on various factors, including your pace through GLA. You can always begin GLA without a separate English vocabulary program and add one later if desired.

B16. What Latin programs can we use after           GLA?

I have personal knowledge of happy users of GLA who have gone on to use:

Different features of GLA are represented (or handled differently) by each of these programs, so users choose one or the other depending on which priorities matter the most to them. Since people have different priorities, I wouldn't recommend the same successor program for everyone. But you'll have lots of choices!

Other programs to consider, again depending on your priorities, include

Reading programs are an option, too

All the programs I've mentioned follow an approach to teaching Latin grammar which is broadly similar to GLA's except for Ecce Romani (a reading program) and Latin for the New Millenium (a hybrid or fusion program which can be used in a variety of ways).

For those seeking a reading program to use exclusively, Cambridge and Oxford are well-regarded (along with Ecce Romani); and for a direct method program, you could consider Oerburg's Lingua Latina.

All of these programs begin at the beginning of Latin grammar, so there is some overlap with GLA, but they all proceed more rapidly than GLA and so represent potential sequals to it. With GLA as a foundation, faster-paced programs are accessible and doable.

Of course, the age at which your child completes GLA will be a factor in your choice of a successor program, as well. Not every successor program is equally accessible to the youngest GLA graduates.

The Well-Trained Mind forum is a great place to post specific questions about any of these programs.

See the next question for related material.

B17. Why use GLA if we will have to switch to a           different program later?

The short answer is that GLA is different from your other options in ways you may value, and switching later isn't hard. GLA offers unique features and provides a unique grounding and preparation for later programs.

Solid grounding for you and your child

GLA provides such a thorough grounding in basic and important concepts like
case use, through its special topic sequence and structure, that it adds to the value of programs used as sequels to GLA. GLA does this by equipping your child to understand essential topics that later programs treat more cursorily.

GLA also teaches your child methods for studying and learning, and equips you
with methods for teaching. This is very helpful preparation for later programs that assume this knowledge, as many do.

Unique features and emphases

You do have other choices. I can't say which program priorities matter, or should matter, the most to you and your family, but GLA's features and emphases are unusual, and you won't find all of them in other programs: the thorough grammar explanations, the teaching notes, the study sheets, the derivative worksheets, the extensive translation, the complete set of quizzes, and so on.

Neat breaking point, easy transitions

I should also say that Level II of GLA ends at a good, neat breaking point in Latin grammar. The transition into successor programs is not difficult; some material in your next program will be familiar to your child, but much will be new. The familiar is a good opportunity for review. Sequel programs don't cover material in exactly GLA's topic order, so your child will meet a mix of old and new in a sequel program, which works out well.

I've had users say they wished there were more GLA after Level II, because they value GLA's features and emphases, but I haven't had any users say that the transition to another program wasted time or was difficult to navigate.

B18. What else can we do after GLA?

Greek or another inflected language

After GLA, your child can go on to study Greek (or another inflected language, like Russian), and you'll find that the knowledge of the Latin noun system your child has acquired from GLA will provide a solid foundation for the similar noun systems of other inflected languages. You can either discontinue Latin after GLA (it ends at a neat breaking point) and pick up a language like Greek, or you can continue Latin after GLA, and add Greek or another inflected language alongside.

(Of course, it's also possible to simply begin with Greek—with no Latin foundation—but because Greek also features a completely different alphabet, Latin is an easier place to start.)

I studied Russian (at length) and some Greek after studying Latin, and yes, I had to get used to a new alphabet, but the whole idea of an inflected noun system was familiar and comfortable, and I had the study skills I needed to tackle a new inflected language. So it's a great sequence.

Because GLA does an unusually full study of case use within the first declension, students finish GLA understanding a great deal about what the different inflected languages have in common. See B4, above, for more on case use, then see the
Latin curriculum page for more information on GLA.

A Romance language

After GLA your child can also go on to the study of any of the Romance languages, such as Spanish, Italian, French, or Portuguese. Those languages are descended from Latin, and there is a great deal of similarity between Latin vocabulary and the vocabulary of the Romance languages. The verb systems of the Romance languages are also markedly inflected, as is Latin's verb system (all are much more complex than our simpler English verb system), so Latin study is a good preparation for the Romance languages in that way as well.

I studied French after studying Latin, and was able to experience these benefits first hand.

It's exciting to gain experience with several Indo-European languages and to begin to see the connections among them. It's a glimpse into linguistics as well as into the specific languages studied.

B19. Can you give me a road map to some of the           before-and-after options?

Sure! Here's a flyer you can print that gives the big picture. For details on many options, come back to the FAQ page.

C1. What do I buy?

It's simple—order one student book for each child you are teaching, plus one teacher's manual and audio file set for yourself. If you want to do the exercises as well, then you will want a student book for yourself also. For our e-book copyright policy, please see our policies page.

C2. Is GLA a "notebooking program"?

You'll want to put GLA in a binder. The loose-leaf format is convenient for photocopying, grading, etc.

GLA does not feature a set of rules which students follow to create their own notebooking pages. GLA is essentially a worksheet program to use in a binder.

C3. Do you sell a binder?

Not anymore. A law called the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) made that cumbersome. But we like the Staples "Better Binder" for GLA.

C4. What am I allowed to photocopy?

Please see our policies page for our copying policies.

C5. How much does GLA cost?

Please see the product details pages for current pricing. GLA is very competitively priced. We keep the price of the student book especially low, for the convenience of families with multiple children, Moms who want their own copy of the student book, and co-ops and schools placing group orders.

C6. Do you offer a guarantee?

We stand behind our products with a 90-day unconditional guarantee; see our policies page for details. The sample pages will give you a look at the curriculum before you pay for shipping.

C7. How do I order?

Visit the product details pages.

C8. Can I contact the author?

You can reach me through our contact form. Your feedback and questions are appreciated, and I look forward to hearing from you. Your questions have already contributed to this page!

C9. How do I share my schedule with others?

If you devise schedules for the use of GLA that you think might be of interest to other GLA users, please contact me. I may share them at this site. I'm especially interested in your experience if you are teaching GLA to children of different ages
at the same time; to older beginners; or in a co-op context. But I'm interested in
all of you, so don't be shy.

Thank you, and enjoy your great Latin adventure!
