Journey on the Latin Road: An Interview with Barbara Beers

Vol. 115, Prg. 6–10
February 25–March 1, 2013

“There is no language in the world that affects English as much as Latin. We’re over 60 percent Latin-based in our vocabulary, and we learn as we study it that that vocabulary comprises our most sophisticated English words: those of our sciences, medicine, law, even our technology.”

What can a dead language do for your child? According to Barbara Beers, author of The Latin Road to English Grammar, more than you might think! Join Mike Farris on this week’s edition of Home School Heartbeat to learn how Latin can impact your child’s academic and spiritual understanding.
