First Post - Need a suggestion for a beginner's textbook

Postby rhondak » Tue Feb 18, 2014 11:11 pm

Aloha All - This is my first post. I've been interested in learning Latin for some time now and was thrilled to find this website and the forums. I read a lot of medieval history and find many quotes in Latin that aren't translated so I'm always wondering what I'm missing. I noticed there are several textbooks for beginners from which to choose. Can some of you weigh in with some suggestions on what to start with? I realize that everyone has their own opinion. I'd very much like to hear about what you like and don't like with your chosen text. I'm a complete novice so I do not have any background knowledge of Latin grammar. I'm guessing that answer keys are going to be essential as I won't have any other way of knowing if I'm on the right track or not. Mahalo for your help.
