Age Range: 11-18 (Grades 6-12, with parental supervision)

 

This site offers a complete audio course for classical Latin that follows a textbook by George Adler.

In addition to Latin, you’ll find similar resources for learning Hebrew, Greek, French, and English.

Again, all of the materials are presented for free, although a donation is politely requested.

This website is not particularly user-friendly. It takes some time to click your way around to find the links to the freebies. They are interspersed with links to materials that are for sale. But a little patience pays off, and you’ll be able to access the free language lessons, as well as lessons in handwriting and math!

Because of the way this site is organized, parents (as always) should preview the materials and supervise all internet activity.
