Teacher of Latin

In Wheelock ch. 6 LATINA EST GAUDIUM ET UTILIS, he says that "lingua latina" = latin langauge.

So, would a "teacher of latin (language)" be translated as: "Magister linguae Latinae"?

The reasoning being:

Magister in the nom. sg.
linguae in the gen. sg., since it is "of language Latin" I'm trying to say
Latinae, adj. which agrees with linguae

Which textbook is considered the most thorough and profound, yet suitable for beginners with Latin proficiency, containing both ancient authentic passages from its start, much vocabulary, and many questions for revise and comprehension as well as etymological and cultural cultivation?

Forogot to mention the following indispensables:

1) I'd like a fine, thorough discussion of the dual, for instance, integrated in the main body.

Same-sex marriage

So you lot, I want to test the waters of the Textkit community, as it were. I'm vehemently for same-sex marriage, believing same-sex couples should have the same options and rights as heterosexual couples, but I'm interested to see what everyone else's opinion is.
