We had the opportunity to review Visual Latin as a part of the TOS Homeschool Crew. It’s kindof a funny story – that I didn’t really want to review this item because we already had a Latin curriculum for the year. However, one of our main ladies, Brenda from Garden of Learning, prays about EVERY list before it goes out…and let’s just say – I AM SO VERY GLAD she does that as Visual Latin has been an EXTREME BLESSING to our family! WE LOVE THIS PROGRAM!
What is Visual Latin? Well, it is EXACTLY what the name implies. The creators made this specifically for homeschool families and it is basically a teacher at a chalkboard teaching the students as if they are in a class…but it’s not as boring as it sounds. As a matter of fact, we spend a significant amount of time laughing while doing Visual Latin! And while I’m on the topic of “creators” now would probably be a good time to mention them: Dwane Thomas (the “teacher”) and his buddy Thomas Purifoy, Jr. (the “producer”) who are both husbands and dads to wives that homeschool their kids. AWESOME!
We absolutely LOVE this program, which is recommended for children ages 9 and up, not only does it make learning fun, but it makes learning easy. We would HIGHLY recommend this curriculum to others – without a moments hesitation. If you are curious about this program here are some FREE options for you:
Each lesson has three parts: Grammar, Sentences and Reading & Translation. Another quick, yet important point (in my opinion), is that there is a lot of reference to the God and the Bible…all the Reading & Translation sections are Christian focused – which WE LOVE!
With regards to price: I feel these are priced perfectly…not too cheap, not too expensive. They are $30 per DVD (or $25 if you download) which consists of 10 lessons – with 30 lessons being a “complete year” (so $90 for a full year curriculum, or less if you buy them all at one time).

The Compass Store has several other items available, one of which I think is interesting is a six series video set titled, “Seek Social Justice”. You can see more about it by clicking HERE.
