Lingua latina

Postby LatinGirly » Wed Aug 13, 2008 8:35 pm

Hi guys -

So I am about to finish my first semester of Latin, it was a distance learning course. Anyways soon I will be done with chapter 20 of Wheelocks. I have been doing both the textbook and workbook.

This semester I'm thinking of taking a semester off but plugging along with Wheelocks on my own, then I will be ahead for the next semester! But I was thinking maybe I should get Lingau Latina to supplement my studies. So this very long post is really just to ask what book of LL do I get? There are alot online and I don't know the order. Like I said I'm finishing up chapter 20 of wheelocks. But I don't mind at all a little review if it will solidify my understanding of the fundementals.

Thanks!
LG :D

The orange book is the place to start. Here is the book on Amazon. You should not need anything besides this text, if you're just reading it casually.

It looks like they are out of stock at Amazon!

But here is a used copy at abebooks.com for only $8.55.

Correct! Don't bother trying to get ahead in Wheleock's Latin.. you'll forget it all too quickly without a supplement. If you spend time with Lingua Latina, you'll reinforce everything you've learned so far, and be able to read 5X faster than most beginning students studying exclusively with Wheelock.
