Hans Henning Ørberg
Grenaa, Denmark - 2.19.2010 -
Dear all friends and customers of Focus Publishing,
We are very sad to announce the death of our beloved author of the infamous, Lingua Latina series, Hans Henning Orberg. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his children on the 17th of February, 2010.
Although very weak and disabled in his last month, he was very happy that he managed to finish his latest book, Ars Amatoria and see it published. He also leaves this world with peace in his mind, confident that his children will carry on his publishing firm, Domus Latina, based in Denmark.
The funeral will take place Wednesday the 24th of February at 2 pm in the church of Grenaa: Grenaa Kirke, Torvet 12, 8500 Grenaa, Denmark.
We would be grateful if you would pass on the sad news to friends and colleagues.
Hans From 1953 to 1961 he worked in the Naturmetodens Sproginstitut, an institute where the languages are taught according to the "natural method" of learning.
While there he created a new course in Latin: Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicata published in 1955.
In 1990 he modernized the system and changed the title to Lingua Latina per se illustrata, which was published with small adjustments. In his retirement, he directed the Domus Latina publishing house and gave lectures in Europe and the United States on the natural method.
Focus Publishing is proud to be the official U.S. distributor of his books.
