Sona si Latine logueris! (Honk if you speak Latin!) This is a book of English-to-Latin translation and sentence building exercises, an optional companion to the Latin for Kids textbook. It is the essential first step toward active use of Latin. Like Latin for Kids, this companion is divided into 10 sections. In each section the translation exercises use the grammar introduced in the corresponding lesson of Latin for Kids. Additional vocabulary is also offered. Exercises deliver each new grammar subject step-by-step. For example, working with the Genitive Case singular, we first practice using the Genitive case with nouns, then add pronouns and adjectives in the next exercise. The last translation in each section is a vocabulary review. Answer Key pages follow each set of exercises. The Answer Keys are designed to be cut out if desired, without losing any other material in the book. As an extra challenge, in the Answer Key Latin translations I indicate long vowels and suggest remembering those noun and verb endings that always contain long vowels. In addition to translation exercises, each lesson offers sentence building practice. Using provided word groups, we make sentences following a simple pattern. E.g: We use the verb 'dare' - to give, and match a source (in Nominative Case) to a product (in Accusative Case): A cow gives us milk. A garden gives us flowers. A vineyard gives us grapes... etc. As in Latin for Kids, this book contains a lot of additional educational material: - lots of Latin inscriptions - on monuments, buildings, and sundials, on ancient Roman coins and modern currency, including a dollar bill and a one-pound British coin; - mottoes of US states and of countries around the world, - animal names in Latin; - interesting facts about ancient Roman cuisine; - mini-articles on etymology, such as the Latin origins of city names, last names that come from Latin (Cooper, Spenser, Palmer...), Latin origins of English words, such as 'disaster, ' 'torpedo, ' and others; - jokes in Latin and Latin translations of modern-day memes, such as 'couch potato' and 'May the force be with you!') Much of the new vocabulary is presented in pictorial form - through colorful photos and illustrations.
