I am trying to decide whether I should add Latin to our curriculum. I am switching over to a more classical way of educating as guided by The Well Trained Mind. They highly recommend learning Latin, but I am hesitant. My 5th grader wants to start learning Spanish, and I should have access to a free curriculum. I hate to tell her she can't learn Spanish because we are going to study Latin. And I hate to pay for a Latin curriculum. I do think Latin would greatly benefit her vocabulary skills, which are somewhat lacking, in my opinion, though she tests above average.
I need opinions and reasons. Should we pursue Latin? Spanish instead? Both? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
