Lingua Latina texts

Postby ellisje » Fri Jun 27, 2008 7:17 pm

I am going to purchase Lingua Latina (Pars I: Familia Romana) for homeschool instruction and have noticed that there are a number of companion texts. Is it necessary or beneficial to purchase any of these?

The Exercitia (Exercises) are definitely very helpful.

Homer: Well it's always in the last place you look.

I have no experience with it, but "Latine Doceo" seems apt for your purpose.

I would suggest the College Companion for the series:


It is excellent, and many homeschoolers have found it invaluable.
