Here's what students, teachers, and parents
have to say about our Latin drills:
I can’t show you the happy expressions on some of my students’ faces when I told them we now had Centaur Systems software to accompany this textbook. One student said to me yesterday, “This is how I learn my forms best and feel like I know the language."
Ian Hochberg (teacher), St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, Alexandria VA
For over 10 years, I have used Rob Latousek's Latina drills with my classes at
school and also with the students I tutor. The students prefer to use his computer-based drills
over any of those available on the web. Students tell me that his programs help the information
"stick" more readily than other programs. When I give my students a choice, they always choose to
use Latina; and their improved quiz and test scores verify that using these programs significantly
improves their ability to remember vocabulary words, noun/adjective endings, and verb forms.
Denise Brown (teacher & tutor), Chantilly VA
When our Latin Flash Drill software was erased during a network
renovation, our students switched to using drills from the Internet.
They much prefer the Centaur ones and want them back ASAP. Smiles.
Geraldine Kuenkler (teacher), Valley Regional High School, Deep River CT
My son used Latin Flash Drill and Latin Vocab Drill for
15 minutes a day over the course of a month and raised his average
quiz score up from 45% to 100%. I don't think he could have passed
the course without this software.

Latin Vocab Drill . . . makes learning vocabulary a lot
easier and makes the learning process hassle-free and fun.
George Artley (student), Derby Grammar School student, Derby, England
We like the new updated versions of Latin Flash Drill and
Latin Vocab Drill very much. It provides our students with much
more practice, and we like being able to keep track of their progress.
Our students think the program is great. They love to go to the
computer room to use it. (Of course, they think it is a way to
get out of class, when it actually isn't.) Keep up the good work!
Tom Tuthill (teacher), St. Louis Priory School, St. Louis MO
Our son, Matt, had a C average in Latin going into the semester
final. He started using Latin Flash Drill and SOS Games
every night for a week and ended up getting 100% on the final.
He really got hooked on using the programs, and when he took the
National Latin Exam, he received a 'magna cum laude' award for
his efforts. His teacher is great, but we think that getting the
instant feedback from using the programs helped him focus
better than when he does the paper-and-pencil homework out
of the book.
Carole Sailer (parent), Studio City CA
There is no doubt that my students who have used your
grammar and vocabulary drills have a better grasp of Latin than those who have not.
John Hansen (teacher), Westmoore High School & Univ. of Central Oklahoma
All my students who have used Latin Vocab Drill regularly
achieved great success. One student with ADD raised his vocabulary
quiz average from 63 to 83% within just a couple of weeks of using
the program, and he maintained that level the rest of the year.
We have several Latin programs available for our students, but
none gets the use that Latin Vocab Drill does.
Dennis Rayl, Trinity School at River Ridge, Bloomington MN
As a teacher, I find it extremely helpful for saving valuable
class time previously used for drill. With the availability of
this program there was a marked improvement in students' knowledge
of forms, noticeable even over a single weekend.
Gale Stone (teacher), LaFollette High School, Madison WI
Our son was not into Latin at all, but once he got
the patterns and concepts down from these drills, it gave him the
confidence he needed to succeed, and he went to the top of his class.
Mimi Shanahan (parent), Oxford MD
Latin Flash Drill is great for use in the classroom and
as extra practice for students having difficulty with Latin forms.
LeaAnne Osburn (teacher), Barrington High School, Barrington IL
Teachers have little time for extensive classroom drilling,
and yet extensive practice in the language is essential. Latin
Flash Drill is a welcome addition to the techniques of mastering
