Salvete, ecce discipulus novus

Postby Haroldus » Tue Mar 30, 2010 2:21 am

I am in the process of acquiring fluency in Latin with Lingua Latina by Orberg as my primary tool. I also use Rosetta Stone Lingua Latina to help expand my vocabulary. These two tools are quite different but they seem to complement each other. Lingua Latina by Orberg is harder and requires more motivation but offers better grammar instruction. Rosetta Stone is easier and expands vocabulary quicker but I have not seen any explicit grammar instruction in it so far.

I like the immersion method for language acquisition because I believe that method is the only way to become fluent in a language.

I am really confused about the sounds of some vowels in Latin, so I will be posting pronunciation questions later.

Valete,

Rock on, Haroldus.

That's a pretty cool approach. I hope it works out for you. I'm also hammering away at Lingua Latina. I tried the Rosetta Stone demo, and decided that I didn't want to use that as my primary tool. I don't know that I have time enough to combine them both.
