Einhard wrote:I used Wheelock to get to grips with the basic grammar and pick up some vocabulary, but rather than then launcing into Cicero et al immediately, I read through Orberg's LL series. I had the grammar so it was really just a manner of getting used to the language, absorbing as much as I could in a relatively relaxed, easy manner. once I had finished that, I moved onto some Latin readers with extracts from a wide range of sources. I personally think it's the best method. It''ll takes years to gain a good knowledge of latin if you decide to use Orberg alone. It took me a few hours to get through the more difficult chapters later on in the series, and that's with a good knowledge of grammar. I shudder to hink how long it would have taken were I picking it up as I went along.
