Latin Program Giveaway

When I was in high school, I took two years of Latin (I don’t remember two year’s worth of Latin now, though).  I would sort of like to re-learn some of that Latin.  You know, in my spare time.  I was reading at Fivs J’s today and saw a post about a giveaway for a free Rosetta Stone Latin program.  So I decided to enter myself in the contest.  Here’s some info on Rosetta Stone:

Rosetta Stone is the fastest way to learn a language and has been the #1 foreign language curriculum among homeschoolers for a while — and you can WIN the *all new* version 3 Rosetta Stone Homeschool LATIN program… FOR FREE! This is the first year you can get Latin in the brand new Version III update.

This is a $259 program (and believe me it’s worth every penny!)
This is a computer based curriculum and Rosetta Stone will also include a headset with microphone, and a supplementary “Audio Companion” CD so you can practice lessons in the car, on the go, or where-ever! Students participate in life-like conversations and actually produce language to advance through the program. Rosetta Stone incorporates listening, reading, grammar, vocabulary and writing along with speaking and pronunciation lessons. For parents, the new Parent Administrative Tools are integrated into the program to allow parents to easily enroll up to ten students in any of 12 predetermined lesson plans, monitor student progress, grade completed work (the program grades the work automatically as the students progress- I love that!), and you can view and print reports for transcripts. Homeschooling a lot of kids at your house? This program is designed to enroll and track up to ten students (five users on two computers) and will work for nearly all ages — from beginning readers up to college students.

To win this most excellent Latin program copy these paragraphs and post them in (or as) your next blog post, and/OR link to the contest from your facebook page and/OR email the information to your homeschool support group – Then go to the original page http://Jeneralities.com and leave a comment saying that you’ve posted about, or have linked to, the contest. Please make sure the link works to get back to the original contest page when you post. And good luck!

If you’re interested in working in a science or medical field, knowing some Latin (or Greek) will be very helpful.  So many scientific and medical terms and based on Greek and Latin words.  Knowing something about either (or both) language can really help you decode some of the uncommon words you’ll see in your studies.

    Thanks for leaving such a nice, sweet comment on my blog. :) I smiled really big and ran to show my husband. Then he asked me why I never have the same reaction when he tells me I’m beautiful.

    I’ll be checking out your blog!!
