In the past I’ve made the mistake of assuming too much. I put up the words and asked students if they knew what they meant. And the students looked at me blankly. This time I’ll start with telling you what the words mean! Then we can go through the hymn or prayer and you’ll actually have some inkling of what’s going on! Brilliant! It’s only taken me a year and a half…

I’ll paste the list of words and meanings at the end of this post, to save you scrolling through. Learning vocab takes more than reading a list once through, so there are lots of programs to help you on your way. Quizlet.com, home of free online educational games They let you make flashcards, quizzes and games. Use this link to see flashcards and games for this lesson’s vocabulary : Credo in unum Deum
