I've also been looking at the Latin readers and such that Orberg and others have on Amazon, the easy ones designed for beginners, but all of them are designed for people who have finished Familia Romana, so i suppose I'll just have to wait. When I'm done with Familia Romana I'm going to order Harrius Potter as a treat for myself.

Hence I am determined to stick to new information until I have internalised it. Hence I am doing the exercises a number of times. I am also taking the time to memorise the verb principal parts....something which Orberg doesn't even give us....but which are, I reckon, necessary for future use.....so that might explain why I'm going a little slower these past two weeks... Having said that I am, I think, just starting to get a glimmer of a sensation of actually reading it and grasping the reality what's being said without the language and grammar getting in the way...which is a nice feeling. My attitude to this is to be - well - relentless. I will give it 1 hour per day, 7 days per week until I have mastered enough to read Virgil like I would English......If I have to slow up sometime just to absorb new information then so be it.
