Sandra Garant, J.D., is a veteran homeschooling mom, certified teacher, writer, attorney, and administrative law judge. She taught her three children at home until they were ready for college.

My older daughter, who went through Language of God in grade school (and did not have any other grammar, such as Voyages in English, Easy Grammar or any of what other homeschoolers use) has consistently received 98% on standardized tests in English–even an early ACT she took this year–which I credit to Language of God.
Hands down, Language of God is the most wonderful program for Language Arts. I apologize to my Protestant friends because I can’t recommend a program for them that’s anywhere nearly as good as what I use for my own children.
I am amazed at the progress this young man has made in his ‘worst’ subjects, spelling and grammar! He actually said he liked them! Your workbooks are wonderful. I don’t think there is anything else out there like them.
My five children have been using Catholic Heritage Curricula’s Language of God series for a number of years now, and I am so pleased with the fact that, as they are learning about grammar and the proper use of our English language, they are also being educated in the fundamentals of the Church! Interesting facts about our beloved Saints, Church history, and the catechism are woven into the material so that as they learn about the use of quotation marks, for example, they are also gathering information that will strengthen their understanding of our faith.
We love the Language of God series. Everything is so simple, because of the layout and no teacher’s manual to deal with! It incorporates the faith in every lesson and it is so nice to have each book spiral bound. Thank you!
I am really liking this program—my children are learning but aren’t overwhelmed. Many of my children are from third world countries and have English issues and this program seems to work.
