Eventually, however, one has to learn the conjugation of Latin verbs (four categories) and the inflections of the nouns (three declensions). And so from a gentle start, by the end of the book we must fully confront the guerilla warfare of learning grammar through tenses, cases and conjugation that bedevils the study of any language.Read more ›
I have tried 3 other Latin programs before and was about to give up until I found this one. One Latin program had hundreds (not kidding!) of mistakes in the text.
I love the historic approach which draws my son right in. We watched Pompeii movies, Roman movies, etc. It will take us a year to get through the first book. He will be well prepared to take the SAT subject Latin after the 3 unit books.
I do urge you to buy the whole set of books/cd. They really complement each other.
Firstly, I've never taken Latin before, so I haven't been exposed to Wheelock or any of the other courses out there or in a formal, structured educational setting. I have toyed with Rosetta Stone's Latin Language CD, which is also a good place to start. Back to the review.
I've been looking for a decent "Beginner's Latin" book for a few years now and happened to stop at the local brick and mortar bookstore and found this treasure. I'm a designer by trade, so this book appealed to me on many levels:
1) It's visual.
2) You're launched right into a lesson in Latin.
At first you find yourself looking at images and then at the sentences, trying to understand what the text really means. If you don't understand, don't worry,
3) You are presented with a vocabulary list that covers most if not all of the words in each lesson. There might be one or two that are *assumed* but it's generally not a problem.
4) There are grammar and syntax discussions and variations on translation to help students see that there is more than one way to state a concept and how to identify the best way.
5) Lavishly illustrated with drawings and photos that tell a story to help students really understand Latin in a historic context.
I found after the first chapter, that I was able to understand a full segment with little effort.
I recommended that you pick up the North American Cambridge Latin Course Unit 1 Audio CD. Though I am a little annoyed having listened to the CD to find that I have both the North American 4th Edition CD and Course book and have found that the audio doesn't always match. I ran into the problem in Chapter 3.
