Latin Builder
An activity-app based on matching verbs and nouns to build Latin passages.
Publisher: Paul Hudson

Why we love this app

Latin Builder is an app for the intermediate and advanced student with a good vocabulary and grammar foundation. With this visually appealing program, students can work through prose in the order of both English and Latin syntax. It offers instruction in grammar and provides classically engaging narrations.

What it teaches and how it works

Three different difficulty levels are offered in this app: Perseus (easy), Hercules (medium), and Caesar's Gallic Wars (hard). Students piece together the parts of grammar to their English translation (or vice versa), to complete passages of the narrations.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

The prose is broken up into manageable sections, and the student works through each at their own pace. As their skills improve, the narrations and histories unfold!
