Editorial Reviews

Review

"Familia Romana and A Companion to Familia Romana came as a complete revelation. I'd heard they were unique, but they are literally nothing less than a work of genius. They would completely revolutionize the classroom, and I would urge all teachers of first-year Latin at universities and all high school teachers to seriously consider adopting this radical approach to learning Latin. The companion volume provides all the traditional exposure you would want, but the main volume shows every prospect of genuinely internalizing Latin in the learner's brain as a living language, calling on a whole set of language-acquisition skills and instincts normally neglected in the teaching of a dead language. Mind-blowing."
—Jack Mitchell, Department of Classics, Dalhousie University 

From the Back Cover

Hans Ørberg’s Lingua Latina per se Illustrata is the world’s premiere textbook for Learning Latin via the Natural Method. Students first learn grammar and vocabulary intuitively through extended contextual reading and an innovative system of marginal notes. It is the only textbook currently available that gives students the opportunity to learn Latin without resorting to translation, but allows them to “think” in the language. It is also the most popular text for teachers, at both the secondary and collegiate levels, who wish to incorporate conversational skills into their classroom practice.

Lingua Latina incorporates the following features:

  • The most comprehensive treatment of Latin grammar available in an elementary textbook
  • A vocabulary of almost 1,800 words, reinforced by constant and creatively phrased repetition, vastly expands the potential for later sight reading
  • A complete line of ancillary volumes, exercises, and readers both in print and online

Seasoned secondary and college teachers often find their own reading facility enhanced by using Lingua Latina.

Procurei um método para aprender novos idiomas e me deparei com o método natural. LINGVA LATINA é uma coleção perfeita pra aprender latim através do método natural.

O livro inteiro funciona te proporciando situações do quotidiano Romano e paulatinamente acrescentando novas palavras ao vocabulário de modo bastante gradual e de fácil entendimento. A curva de aprendizagem é suave e muito efetiva.

Eu gosto de utiliza-lo junto com o Gramática Latina do Napoleão Mendes de Almeida, que apesar de ser um livro muito técnico (muito bom para modular o aprendizado) tem deficiência na forma de ensinar situações e mensagens simples.

É como uma aula de português. O LINGVA LATINA vai te carregar no colo em todos os passos da compreensão e produção do latim. Como se fosse o processo de AQUISIÇÃO da linguagem do dia dia de qualquer lingua nativa. Mas uma boa Gramática vai te modular a forma correta, culta, não coloquial, não vulgar de produzir o idioma de forma oral e escrita.

O LINGVA LATINA não exigem dicionário para o aprendizado pois todo vocábulo é explicado através de imagens, repetição, símbolos e diferentes situações, todas dentro de um contexto. Apesar disso eu tenho dicionário, que utilizo minimamente, para reforçar.

A propósito o livro é totalmente escrito em Latim de cabo a rabo. Todas as explicações são em latim de forma a te fazer pensar como um falante de língua latina, exempli gratia: "nullum = non unum" (nenhum = não um), "adest = hic est" (presente = aqui está/está aqui).
