3. My teenage son decided to study Latin as an elective homeschool course this summer. I purchased an inexpensive used high school level book, the Cambridge Latin Course. We're learning the words but aren't certain of the pronunciations. If you are educated in Latin, do you feel it's useful for us to study this even if we are pronouncing some of the words incorrectly?

4. Regardless of whether you've studied Latin, do you think I should stick with the book or spend the extra money to buy a Latin course which includes a CD? (I am on a rather tight budget.)
