Many families starting Latin for the first time or starting Latin with Schola Rosa for the first time are curious about teaching Latin pronunciation at home. Where are the rules? How do we do it?
In general, Schola Rosa takes an immersion approach to Latin. We believe that if the students are regularly hearing Latin through hymns, songs, and prayers, then the pronunciation will come quite naturally as they progress in their studies. For example, we do not sit down and teach our littlest children the rules for pronouncing English. The idea is to let the language sink in a bit and not stress the pronunciation.
Audio files are provided to accompany lessons to aid teachers, parents, and students in pronouncing the readings.
