refresh Latin - which book?

Postby hollyva.770 » Mon Apr 20, 2009 7:04 am

In School I learned Latin for four years. I always liked these classes very much but since then I stopped doing it. Now I want to refresh my knowledge. Has anyone suggestions for good learning material in order to refresh it? In school we have translated "De bello Gallico" and some other poets (Ovid,...). Hope that I can refresh it and then read the books again.

Lingua Latina Book I. Hands down. Will start easy and get harder.

Agreed. Especially useful for someone in your position who wants to pick up your Latin without starting from scratch. You'll quickly recall the Latin that you once learned and then build on it.

PauloNB consentio. Hic liber praesertim usui est alicui in tuo statu, qui Latinam refovere sed non denuo incipere velis. Legens latinam cuius oblitus eras statim recordaberis ampliabisque.
Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute
