Songs to help learn Latin

Postby tomato2 » Mon May 10, 2004 9:57 pm

When my mom took Latin (way, way back in the 1930's ! ! !), she learned cute little songs that helped her remember some of the rules for conjugation and declension endings. But now she can't remember any of them. Anybody out there learn this kind of stuff? Mom says they were songs that were popular at the time, they just altered the words.
Thanks for any help you can offer!

My Latin teacher used a song for the personal endings of the verbs.

It goes to the tune of the Mickey Mouse Club theme song (I think).

o, s, t, m-u-s, t-i-s, n-t

m i c k e y m o u s e

Saying all the letters individually.

Simply type your text, click on the desired emoticon :o :shock: :? 8) :lol:

They will go to the end of the textbox, not to the cursor position. Or else you can type the code yourself where you want '&)' for "Cool" - omit the apostrophe.
:wink:

ooh, I learn the same way, only I never bothered to make songs, so little amy-chants with rhythms evolved. "res reirei rem re. RES rerum rebus res rebus" In 2nd grade I learned times table songs to I'll be Working on the Railroad.

Seeven, fourteen twenty-ooone, twentyeight thirty fiiive~
try making some for Latin!
