    First Form Latin - Again

    This morning my youngest child started First Form Latin. I think she is my fifth child to use it. I popped in the DVD with Glen Moore as the instructor. Once more I am reminded what an excellent language teacher he is. His lessons are so memorable. Whenever I see the verb “lavo,” I think of him saying, “When you wash something with lava, it gets really clean.”. My husband walked in the room and said, “Hey, it’s the guy that puts on sunglasses for recitations.”

    My children have the experience of getting the same awesome teacher, only years apart. I’m actually considering whether I should hold on to the DVDs for my future grandchildren.

    Blessings,

    I'm like this too, I plan to keep all my MP books! My daughter is just 13, but sometimes talks as if she already plans on homeschooling her future kids - we joke that I better still take care of Latin and Math
    I also buy multiple copies of picture books, thinking the grandchildren will need them...

      I plan on keeping my Glen Moore videos. I even bought an extra set when I heard they were re-recorded with a new instructor. I am sure she is wonderful, but they aren’t Glen.

        Let Glen live on into eternity! I sure miss him. He was great fun to work with.

          Will the old DVDs with Glenn follow the new edition of First Form Latin? We just purchased First Form and my kids are having a hard time sticking with the Latin instructor on the DVD. Could I buy an old DVD with Glenn and would it still follow along the workbook of lesson?

          I have no experience with Latin, but I’m capable of following a guide, I just don’t trust I will have the passion or pronunciation they could gain from a DVD.

            Before Tanya can even respond, I am going to encourage you to get a copy of his DVDs. Even if they do not follow the new edition.

              What does the cover of the Glenn DVD look like? Will it have his name on it?

                I spoke to MP this morning. They are out of Glenn DVDs, but are working to get the streaming option available for purchase as an upgrade by next week. They said it should be very similar and they only changed because many people complained Glenn was too fast. The new DVD instructor may be too slow for some.

                  We think we can have the Glen Moore videos up in the next couple of days. So when you purchase the FFL Streaming, you can choose which one you want. But you will always have access to both, so you could technically watch both teachers' lessons if you want overkill. And it should work that if you have already bought the Jessica Watson streaming videos, you would get Glen's video added to your account automatically. We'll see, and you can let us know if you don't get them.

                  This is in the hands of people who know the tech side of things, so give them a couple of days.

                  My other disclaimer would be that you may find some things in the Glen videos that would be minor differences from your text. We can't remember how many vocabulary words or meanings we may have changed over the years, but I"m sure there have been a few. But the actual teaching content should be fine; you will just need to overlook it if he mentions something that isn't currently in your book.

                    I have not watched the Glen Moore videos but Jessica Watson’s enthusiasm makes me want to master my Latin! Cheers to great MP instructors!
