Each chapter beings with a story with accompanying necessary vocabulary and Latin comprehension questions. Some of the dia­logues are sil­ly con­ver­sa­tions in every­day sit­u­a­tions, while oth­ers are pas­sages tak­en from Latin lit­er­a­ture, from Plau­tus to an ear­ly mod­ern apothe­cary oath.

Harry Mount is the Editor of the Oldie, and an author and journalist who regularly contributes to a range of national newspapers, including the Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Guardian and the Spectator. I am not going to say you become an expert on all those things, but it’s the perfect introduction to 2000 years of western European history.

How­ev­er, I strong­ly rec­om­mend you use Assim­il Le Latin sans peine in con­junc­tion with Famil­ia Romana to get the most out of both of them. If you can handle, indeed can love grammar and can appreciate how Latin works with it, indeed cannot be learned properly without it, this is the book for you. Salvius coordinates the death of Paris, a famous pantomime actor, and exiles Domitia, the emperor's wife, whose affair with Paris was exposed. My older children were in the room one day while we were playing the chapter 1 song, and they were groaning, saying how silly it was (you know, teenagers). You can start study­ing Bradley’s Arnoldafter you know Latin mor­phol­o­gy well and have a good-sized vocab­u­lary.

If you are not com­fort­able with a book entire­ly writ­ten in Latin and wish to have a trans­la­tion, then Assim­il is the book for you. The first volume of the endorsed OCR GCSE Latin language course with clear guidance for all levels up to GCSE. So here’s a perfect example — in Latin, to say a good person sings a song, you’d say ‘Bonus cantat canticum. to encourage a wide range of approaches to language learning through the use of high quality audio-visual resources. The book also repeats words in dif­fer­ent ways so that a word you might not under­stand, to begin with, will become part of your vocab­u­lary once you’ve fin­ished the book.One more question before we get to the first book—a bit of a spoiler alert here—but those of you that know Latin won’t be surprised to hear that it’s Kennedy’s Latin Primer. If you have worked through Famil­ia Romana method­i­cal­ly and dili­gent­ly, you will be able to read Fab­u­lae Faciles com­fort­ably. I think even if they hate it, everyone would benefit from at least a year of doing Latin, because it’s so incredibly important. Our NATD Latin American syllabus is available to purchase as a download or hard copy – so an option for all requirements.

So I invented a whole new storyline in which Quintus falls in love and tries to elope with the household slave-girl Melissa, but then loses her in the chaos during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. I think the books are a really good introduction into Rome, the Roman Empire, Roman Gaul, and also Roman Britain.This is a novella that was written in Classical Latin, set in Ancient Rome but written with a modern audience in mind. The book’s content is scaffolded throughout and each chapter contains a reading with necessary vocabulary, grammar, as well as grammar and vocabulary practice and vocabulary etymology information.

Roma Aeter­na is the sec­ond vol­ume of the Lin­gua Lati­na per se illus­tra­ta series and takes the learn­er through Roman his­to­ry and myth via pas­sages from Roman his­to­ri­ans and poets such as Livy, Sal­lust, and Ovid. One of the strongest and most effective ways to improve your knowledge of Latin is through reading books to learn Latin.

You naturally think about the journey of the language, the history, the culture, the politics, the architecture, all the rest of it. Listeners who’ve seen the Life of Brian will remember the extremely funny scene with John Cleese and Graham Chapman and the badly spelt graffiti.
