    Latin pronunciation question

    My kids just finished Prima Latina and are starting Latina Christiana. The DVDs and the CD have the V pronounced as V....a friend who studied Latin said that the V should be pronounced with a W sound.
    Has anyone heard of this before?
    Thanks!

    It's a difference between ecclesiastical and classical pronunciation. Memoria Press's programs use ecclesiastical; your friend must have learned classical. Here's a helpful article:
