New to Latin

Postby aceopio » Sun Apr 25, 2004 2:09 am

I'm very much want to learn latin thoroughly, but I'm even having trouble with the beginner books on this site. Besides the beginner books on this site, does anyone know of some free audio lessons available on the internet that would work well in concert with the beginner books provided on this site? I searched google, but didn't find anything useful.

I'm not sure about audio, but I highly recommend the Learn Latin Now! software as a supplement. It starts you off with very simple sentences and gradually progresses to more difficult ones. It includes audio clips so that you can hear the words and phrases spoken, grammatical help on each word, games and quizzes to help with vocab, etc. I find it to be a great aid, in addition to a regular textbook.

Hi Aceopio! Welcome to Textkit! Are you by any chance using Latin for Beginners by D'Ooge? If so, you'll find some other learners who are also using that book, and you can post your question os the Latin for Beginners forum. There's also an answer key, a work in progress, which is downloable from this site. Good luck!

Sorry if this is unsolicited, but if you're looking for free Latin textbooks/grammars written with modern students in mind, try your local library! I'm beginning Greek (unwise move at my stage in Latin, I know) with a book from mine.
