I'm a old-inactive member who can't remember his login and is ready to start Latin again. You can call me Kay.
My background: Linguistics major, fairly adept at learning languages, very familiar with Romance languages (Spanish, French, bit of Italian) as well as a handful of other families. Remember 0 Latin. Also planning on taking it very slowly - too much stuff going in.
I own all of Wheelock's - which is great and all, but it's stored away in some boxes and I'm looking for a more compact system. In particular, I'm looking at the following texts to choose from because I'm going to be moving soon and want just a couple of books to take with me:
Latin via Ovid
Learn to Read Latin
So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I like these books as they all seem focused on reading actual Latin from the get-go and there are only two books involved. I'm not against using Wheelock's but I think I'd enjoy one of these series a lot more.
Thanks greatly! Looking forward to getting involved here
PS: Sorry for yet another one of these threads, but I noticed that the search function was gone so I couldn't really research it before posting.
