Hans Oerberg's Lingua Latina per se illustrata is the world's premiere series 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. The second of two volumes in the series Lingua Latina per se illustrata, Roma Aeterna introduces the most celebrated authors of antiquity through the lens of Roman history. A vivid description of the city's monuments precedes a prose retelling of the first four books of Virgil's Aeneid, with many of the most famous passages in their original verse form. The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy's engaging mythical history of Rome's foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with attest that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections which make up the majority of the text are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right. Roma Aeterna incorporates the following features: Latin immersion with vowel lengths marked Approximately 3,000 new vocabulary words Short discussions of grammar and exercises for each chapter Selected readings cover the material in a Roman history course Index of Roman rulers and of historical events arranged chronologically The volume Indices contains chronological lists of Roman consuls and their ttriumphs, Fasti consulares and triumphales, a name index, Index nominum, with short explanations in Latin, and an Index vocabulorum, covering all the words used in Parts I and II.

One of the most popular Latin texts on the market, "Learn to Read Latin "helps high school and college students acquire the skills to read and appreciate the great works of Latin literature. It not only presents basic Latin morphology and syntax with clear explanations and examples, but also offers direct access to original, unaltered Latin texts. As beginning students learn basic forms and grammar, they also gain familiarity with patterns of Latin word order and other features of style. This second edition--which now combines the first and second parts into a single textbook--improves upon an already strong foundation by streamlining grammatical explanations, increasing the number of syntax and morphology drills, and offering additional short and longer readings in Latin prose and poetry.

This volume is the completely reset Second Edition of Jeanne Marie Neumann's A College Companion (Focus, 2008). It offers a running exposition, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. Ørberg's Familia Romana, and includes the complete text of the Ørberg ancillaries Grammatica Latina and Latin–English Vocabulary. It also serves as a substitute for Ørberg's Latine Disco, on which it is based. As it includes no exercises, however, it is not a substitute for the Ørberg ancillary Exercitia Latina I. Though designed especially for those approaching Familia Romana at an accelerated pace, this volume will be useful to anyone seeking an explicit layout of Familia Romana's inductively-presented grammar. In addition to many revisions of the text, the Second Edition also includes new units on cultural context, tied to the narrative content of the chapter.

WHEELOCK'S LATIN: AUDIO FILES When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; at least one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, five decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate. Workbook for Wheelock's Latin is an essential companion to the classic introductory textbook. Designed to supplement the course of study in Wheelock's Latin, 6th Edition, Revised, each of the forty chapters in this newly updated edition features: Transformation drills, word and phrase translations, and other exercises to test and sharpen the student's skills "Word Power" sections that focus on vocabulary and derivatives Reading comprehension questions and sentences for translation practice Perforated pages for hand-in homework assignments and space for the student's name and date

Lingua Latina is a complete immersion course providing Latin that students read and understand immediately. Every sentence is intelligible per se because the meaning and function of all new word forms is clear from the context, illustrations, or marginal notes throughout this carefully graded text. Part 1 (Familia Romana) is the eventful and entertaining story of a Roman family, which also serves as an introduction to the life and culture of ancient Rome. Part 2 (Roma Aeterna) tells Roman history from the beginnings. Students who have completed Part 1 are already able to read classical texts, such as Ørberg's editions of Caesar's Gallic Wars or of Plautus' Amphitryo. In Part 2, students read extensive selections from classical authors, refine their knowledge of syntax, and develop a vocabulary of over 4000 words. Upon completion of the course, students can read the most challenging classical texts with relative ease.

Essays on relevant aspects of ancient Greek culture and history are also woven throughout.

Familia Romana

Author: Hans H. Orberg

Publisher: Museum Tusculanum

ISBN: 9788772896342

The Latin course is written entirely in Latin. It consists of two parts: I: Familia Romana -- the fundamental or elementary course. II: Roma Aeterna -- the advanced course, with Indices covering both parts. The direct method is based on the inductive principle of learning. In the text every sentence is intelligible per se, or self-explanatory, because the meaning and function of all new words and grammatical forms are made clear by the context in which they occur, or if necessary, by illustrations or marginal notes using vocabulary already learned. This demands a carefully graded text, but in order to make learning efficient the content should stimulate interest and curiosity and make it easy for the reader to visualise the scenes and situations described. To meet these demands the chapters of Lingva Latina I form a continuous narrative, a sort of Latin novel, which captivates the students so that they look forward to reading the continuation of the story. While reading this story and learning facts about the Roman life and traditions, the students pick up the vocabulary and grammar that will enable them to go on, in Part II, to read a representative selection of Latin literature, both prose and poetry. Here, too, all new words and structures, if not immediately intelligible from the context, are explained by marginal notes or illustrations. In addition, factual information is given in the margin. Part I covers the essentials of Latin grammar and introduces a basic vocabulary of some 1600 words. The 35 chapters form a sequence of scenes and incidents from the life of a Roman family in the second century A.D. Each chapter is divided into 3 or 4 lessons (lectiones) and consists of several text pages followed by a section on grammar, three exercises, and a list of new words. At the end of the volume there is a survey of inflexions, a Roman calendar, and alphabetical word-list and a grammatical index.
