Such a wonderful and appropriate step up for language lessons!
Review by Sara
I have had 2 kids go through Language lessons through level 6 and we just love the flow and ease of the lessons, but also the routine that continues to build mastery skills and confidence for my children. I have been in great anticipation to see what the higher level version would look like and I am very impressed! This level definitely stands out as a higher level course. Kiddos get a special feature the first day of the week (a rotating feature much like the earlier versions) and work through vocabulary/spelling, grammar, communication, independent reading and an all important worldview section. For the 4th day this level has the option to read ‘God’s Story’ or read the specific bible account in your own bible to teach summary writing, which is going to be a great change of pace and shift into new skills for this grade. I really appreciate the final day which is a thorough review of the week’s exercises. The layout is set up very nicely with check boxes for your child to work through each day and know exactly what is required of them. It is still the same open and go language lesson that we love but appropriately designed for the 7th grade student. I am very pleased and would recommend this product!
Language Lessons for a Living Education 7
Review by Love2BeMom
The layout of level 7 is slightly different than previous levels. It looks fresh and inviting. Students will be well prepared for high-school grammar, writing and communication after completing this course.

There are five exercises per lesson. Students will study book passages, hymns, pictures, poems and Scripture in the first exercises each week. This will get their creative juices flowing. They will think about what they’ve seen and read, and write their own passages, poems, hymns and prayers. Word study, vocabulary and spelling are also covered from the passages they studied.

Grammar and punctuation are taught in the second exercises of each lesson. It covers more difficult concepts like interrogative and indefinite pronouns, complements, direct and indirect objects, appositives, dependent and independent clauses, complex sentences, verb agreement, active and passive voice. All other basic grammar taught before level 7 are reviewed and taught in more depth.

For the third exercise, the focus is on communication (written, verbal and nonverbal). Students will practise more in-depth how to write a paragraph, essays and how to use transition words. They will learn to write business letters, descriptive paragraphs, comparison and contrast paragraphs, expository paragraphs, and persuasive paragraphs. Even sketching a fiction and nonfiction character and how to write a critical book review are covered. Crucial reminders on courtesy are included each week, like how to introduce other people to one another, answering a phone, texting etiquette, giving and receiving compliments etc.

A companion book, God’s Story (another book published by Masterbooks) is highly recommended for exercise four of each lesson, but strong readers can follow the passage in their own Bibles. They will study the Bible, summarize what they’ve learned, get more paragraph writing practise, grow in faith, and form a strong Biblical Worldview.

Exercise five is review to reinforce concepts learned, which might be used as a quiz or a test.

There is a handy summary of grammar and spelling rules, suffixes and prefixes, root words, and communication at the back of the book for quick reference. Templates for writing paragraphs, character sketch, book reports, book reviews, and essays are also included.

This is definitely an all-in-one, flexible, open and go language arts program that will strengthen your junior high student’s faith and get them well-prepared for high school.
Fantastic Curriculum!
Review by SarahT
LLFLE just keeps getting better! Language Lessons 7 is a seamless continuation of this beloved series. Students will instantly feel comfortable with the format: Day 1 includes new vocabulary/spelling words, Scripture memory, and a feature that includes picture studies, hymn studies, etc. Day 2 reviews/introduces grammar and punctuation. Day 3 encourages written communication skills. Day 4 incorporates God's Story. Day 5 is a review day of that weeks’ lesson.
I am so excited that Master Books continued this series and so are my kids!
Love this set!
Review by Becky V.
We have loved using the Language Lessons for a Living Education (LLFLE) series and I am so excited that it is being continued at the junior high level. I am so thankful to be able to provide my children with educational material that is so intentionally written with an emphasis of growing and strengthening their faith.

This book is targeted for grade 7 and up, over a 36-week schedule, five days a week. A Bible is needed, as well as the option to use God’s Story (an amazing resource to have!!) alongside the Bible reading. This curriculum is very flexible and easy to adjust to each individual student.

Day 1 exposes students to new vocabulary/spelling words, Scripture memory, and a special feature that includes a variety of picture studies to hymn studies, and more of the like. It also checks in with the student in regard to independent reading assigned by the parent and optional bonus activities, such as research opportunities or drawing activities. Day 2 focuses on grammar and punctuation. Day 3 expands on written communication skills. It also has a weekly courtesy lesson (love this!) that covers anything from table manners to how to behave as an audience member. Day 4 is Worldview Day, which focuses on a biblical passage where the student will summarize it and sketch a picture of what was covered. Day 5 is a review day of that weeks’ lesson. These reviews can be used as a weekly assessment if so desired. It is very organized in set up and makes it clear what your students can expect each day.

All assessments and answer keys are included, as well as templates and outlines for additional writing practice. Weekly spelling lists, spelling rules, Grammar study sheets, and Communication study sheets are also included in the appendix, which are truly a great resource and tool to have!

I appreciate that this book is set up to guide your junior high student to be independent in their work. It is very to-the-point, no fluff, challenging, but perfect for the student at this level. This course is truly a treasure!
Perfect Set for 7th Grade English
Review by Lacee
This is a perfect set for your 7th grader for English. God’s Story is an incredible book and resource retelling many stories in the Bible in a simple to understand way; the author uses conversational language like you are sitting right next to him as he explains each story. There are Biblical reference so you can look up and read directly story from the scriptures. God’s Story is used on day four of LLFLE 7 – which is an amazing addition to the MB Language Lesson’s line-up. LLFLE7 is a traditional 36 week curriculum, 5 days per week. As with every MB curriculum, there is a daily schedule of exercises, but it’s pretty self-explanatory and predictable once you get going. Your student will start their week with a special feature – rotating between book passages and picture, hymn, scripture and poem studies – which will engage your student as well as spelling and vocabulary words and scripture memory. Day two is devoted to grammar and punctuation, day three is communication, day for is worldview and day five is a review of the week. Each part of the curriculum is designed to take the student deeper into what they have already learned, building on their knowledge, and help them strengthen their faith.
Amazing!
Review by Dustie
Our family has really enjoyed several levels of the Language Lessons for a Living Education series. I am so thrilled that the author is writing the higher levels. This book really is a comprehensive resource. Reading, writing, spelling, grammar, and Bible in one book! Before we came to Master Books a few years ago, we had a book for each of the above topics (and sometime more than one, if I didn’t feel the topic was covered well enough).
This course is a joy for both the parent and the student. It is well organized and is designed to equip the student develop effective communication skills. The schedule and included resources (much like the other levels) are very useful! I highly encourage parents to read through the course description, as it really helps to understand the purpose of the different activities the student will complete.
The lessons are perfect for junior high level. While there is enough to challenge the student, it is not overwhelming. It truly is set up for ease of use and for retention!
I love that the companion book is God’s Story, which is absolutely beautiful. The illustrations are stunning, and the sections that tie pieces of scripture together are wonderful!
This is, by far, the best language arts curriculum I have found. My kids enjoy it and are retaining what they learn. I love that I don’t have to worry about the content or whether it is sufficient. The authors did a great job on this book!
A stress free, full Language Arts Course
Review by Lynette
I really appreciate that the Language Lessons for a Living Education series has expanded to include Middle school.
We originally did a different Language arts course until LLLE LVL 7 was released. We have the pdf version and it prints off great! My son is enjoying this course so much. The lessons are written to the student and are meant to be done independently. My son is on the spectrum for high functioning autism and has been able to do the lessons independently on his own easily which has boosted his confidence a lot.
This is a complete Language Arts course. There is grammar, spelling, vocabulary study, book (quote) studies, poems, etc. I love that I can get one curriculum that fits all of our needs instead of having a separate book for vocab, spelling and grammar. From a teacher/parent view point LLLE lvl 7 has taken the stress out of teaching my middle schooler knowing he is getting everything he needs. I love the ease of the scope and sequence, how one day/lesson flows into the next. The lessons are not overwhelming and yet still challenging enough that my student does not get bored. A great Language Arts course for any parent/ teacher looking to destress their Language Arts lessons and bring back the joy to homeschooling.
The additional reading book God’s Story is beautifully written. My students enjoy the illustrations. It flows well with LLLE lvl 7 and is a favorite in our home.
Beautiful done!
Review by Yulia
This is an amazing addition to the LLFLE series. Wow! I am in absolute awe of how wonderfully this set is done. It teaches kids the needed skills in writing and communicating and prepares them so well for High School and college years.

It lays a very important foundation for students in writing essays, analyzing a text, studying vocabulary words, setting a Christian worldview, creating different types of writing and learning proper and respectful communication skills.

The authors provided many opportunities for students to practice their writing skills. The curriculum reviews the necessary grammar pretty quickly in the beginning for the students to be successful in their writing. It builds on that to teach them new grammar concepts as well.

It also teaches them very important foundational truths about the Bible and Christianity. I love that the authors included an option for the students to use their own Bible vs the recommended reading. I think at this level students should rely more on the actual Bible, so it is definitely a wonderful addition to LLFLE.

The additional recommended reading for day 4 is beautifully done as well. Breathtaking pictures, short but to the point explanations of the scripture, and Threads of Hope portions (which show the connection between Old and New Testament for kids to grasp).
This is very well done!
Language Lessons for a Living Education 7 Set
Review by Santina
Language Lesson 7 is a fantastic continuation of the series. It's colorful, engaging, and builds upon learned concepts. The five-day schedule creates a solid routine and clear communication between student and parent. The stand outs for me are the special feature days including scripture, poetry, hymns, picture study, vocabulary, and creative writing. Families are given the freedom to choose and discuss their weekly reading as well as complete optional bonus activities such as researching featured authors and writing creative stories from a specific point of view. A Biblical worldview is woven throughout the course. God's Story is a wonderful compliment to Language Lessons 7. It can be used as a devotional by the parent with multiple ages as well.

There is a focus on being an effective reader, writer, and overall communicator. Language Lessons 7 begins with the foundation of a basic paragraph and gradually builds into writing a five-paragraph essay as the final writing assignment. The grammar begins with basics and dives into more depth as the program continues.

Students who have not completed previous levels would be very successful to begin here. There are many helpful study sheets in the back (spelling rules, grammar rules, root words, prefix, suffix) for students who need a quick review of a concept. Overall, I am very pleased with this program. It's the perfect step up from level 6. The grammar, reading, writing, and critical thinking skills build upon the lower levels. I highly recommend this program!
Equip Students to Communicate with a Biblical Worldview
Review by JoyfulMommy
We have loved using the Language Lessons series and are so excited that it is being extended through middle and high school levels! The lessons are short but to the point, directed to the student so they can work mainly independently, and designed to not only teach them good language and communication skills, but to also develop their own walk with God and be equipped as a faithful ambassador for Christ through good etiquette, body language, etc. I love this in the introduction: “Communication lessons speak to the mind and heart of the student, challenging them to examine their writing, speech, and countenance in light of God’s Word.” Such a good point that our countenance is also a form of communication! In this spirit, the weekly courtesy emphasis equips students to show genuine love to others in the spirit of 1 Corinthians 13:5, “love… does not act unbecomingly.”

While students will study grammar rules and be coached through various writing styles and assignments, this course goes “heart deep” as it also compels students to evaluate their lives from a Biblical worldview. For example, after analyzing a paragraph about John and Abigail Adams, students are given the following assignment: “If someone were to write a paragraph about you, what would you want them to say? Write a quote to describe yourself.”

Repeated overview of the whole Bible, gaining more depth with each successive volume, is one more feature I appreciate about the Language Lessons series. In level 7, students will work through God’s Story (or read the accounts in their own Bible) and gain practice summarizing and identifying the main message of the Biblical account. They will also go deeper and learning about the genres and structure of the Bible. I know that while the language and writing skills they learn will equip them to be successful in their communication, an understanding of the Bible will give them a solid foundation to continue to build upon as they grow in their walk with God.

The included God’s Story book gives a wonderful overview of the whole story of Scripture, clearly showing the battle between man’s way and God’s way - or man’s ongoing struggle to submit to God’s authority and the victory God has promised and won over sin! It has beautiful illustrations (as with all Bible story illustrations, they give opportunity to talk about what we *think* these scenes might have looked like, and how these are one artist’s rendering of it), and the text summaries provide wonderful examples of how to summarize a passage. The “Thread of Hope” pages are rich with keen observations drawing out the themes of the stories, showing how they point to Jesus. I think my very favorite part of the book is the timeline of Israel and Judah’s kings along with the prophets and “fast facts” about each prophet’s name and message. The maps are great and I really appreciate the chart contrasting Genesis and Revelation (such as “Ground is cursed, Genesis 3:17” and “Curse is done away with, Revelation 22:3”). This book will be a blessing to your family beyond just its usefulness with Language Lessons 7!
