I homeschooled my son for 5 years, and remember how difficult it was to get affordable textbooks!  I have multiple copies of the Latin, French and Spanish textbooks I posted!  Send me a message if you need more than one copy of any of them!

Thanks

I use the Minimus Latin series for 5th grade but have used it successfully for younger children.  The Spanish and French series are geared to older students (5th to highschool), so is the Cambridge Latin series and the Ecce Romani Latin series.  I have used both Cambridge and Ecce with younger homeschooling children, because when  I taught them, a parent came along usually.  The same can be done with the French and Spanish series, if a parent can guide the student along, and participate.  French is Fun and Spanish is Fun are both easy to use with young students.

Does anyone know if there are spoken classical Latin CDs out there?
