Using "The Art of Reading Latin"

I'm thinking about using the technique described in William Gardner Hale's lecture, "The Art of Reading Latin: How to Teach It" and I'm wondering how it might be done by those who are learning by self study.

Latin tools for Palm Pilots


The screen an my old Palm cracked when the Palm took a nosedive onto the floor of a bus, and the unit has not functioned ever since.

Do you have any favorites?

Does Size Matter, Or Is Bigger Better?

Hi,

Everyone, especially the moderators, can breathe a sigh of relief -- it's not what you think. :)
