Prima Latina: An Introduction to Christian Latin by Leigh LowePrima Latina is a preparatory course for Cheryl Lowes Latina Christiana (Grades K-3). It is intended for teachers with no background in Latin and was developed for children in kindergarten through third grade. The course was designed for students who are still becoming familiar with English grammar. Its goal is to teach and reinforce an understanding of the basic parts of speech while teaching beginner Latin. This provides a solid foundation in grammar before moving on to more advanced language and Latin skills. Prima Latina is an ideal precursor to Latina Christiana, as the vocabulary and format are similar to the Latina Christiana I text. Prima Latina is accompanied by an audio CD which includes pronunciation direction. Latina Christiana I flashcards are an ideal study aid for Prima Latina and a great investment for the parent who intends to use Latina I and II as successor courses.

Cheryl Lowe, founder of Memoria Press, believed that Latin is the ideal foundation for a classical education for children in the elementary grades. Ideally, Latin study replaces some English language study particularly grammar and vocabulary through these years. All of these courses teach grammar—both Latin and English. While conversational language is sometimes taught, these are not conversational programs that leave the grammar for high school. Parents with no Latin background should find the Memoria Press courses very easy to use. Lesson preparation is minimal for the first two programs. These are not independent study workbooks.
What's with the ads? I don't have either of them in my possession so I really can't compare them next to each other. I have a 10 year old who will be starting 5th grade next year and we had originally decided to start with Prima Latina because it was a gentle introduction and it was more familiarity with prayers and the vocabulary and not really heavy on grammar. Is that true in your experience? The prayers part will not bother me as we are going to be going to Latin Mass every few months or so to have her get familiarity with it.
