Trivium-pursuit

Most of what we speak and read is Latin and Greek. We just don’t know it. As much as 80% of English vocabulary is derived from Latin and Greek. If we could recognize the Latin and Greek in English, we would understand our own language better. Understanding English vocabulary from the perspective of Latin and Greek roots gives us the advantage of: 

1. An increase in working vocabulary. 
2. Greater refinement in the choice of words. 
3. Greater accuracy in the use of words. 
4. Greater appreciation of the way words are constructed. 
5. Greater accuracy in spelling. 
6. Ability to decipher the meaning of unfamiliar words. 
7. Preparation for the formal study of Latin and Greek grammar. 

Vocabulary Bridges teaches 50 Latin prefixes and 60 Latin roots; 50 Greek prefixes and 80 Greek roots. All of the major prepositions of Latin and Greek are covered. 2,000 English vocabulary words are examined. 

Vocabulary Bridges requires your child to research the origins of English words in a dictionary and record his findings in the workbook. This encourages the habit of consulting the dictionary for accurate meanings and derivations. 

Though there are a number of books for studying Latin and Greek roots, this workbook is more comprehensive and offers the material in a concise and inexpensive format. 

Through the study of Latin and Greek roots as they are found in English vocabulary, one can familiarize himself with these classical languages without actually taking a formal language course. The Latin and Greek vocabulary taught will also be useful in formal Latin and Greek courses. 

Students ages ten through adult can use this consumable workbook. Click here to read reviews and find out more!
