Greetings, and good for you wanting to learn Latin...I think the books you are downloading are good resources. You may want to check out an easy beginning Latin reader such as 38 Latin Stories -- it is a companion book to Wheelock's Latin (which also has a workbook and answer key)...<br />In the beginning, just work on learning the basic vocabulary and grammar paradigms and it always helps to say the words out loud - belive me you will remember the lessons with more clarity and in general have an easier time of it if you repeat everything several times and hear yourself say it.<br /> :D
