It has been almost 1 year since i started learning latin. Having finished beginner's latin, now i proceed to grapple with Caesar's gallic war, which indeed is a great pleasure to me.
Accidentally i ran into some articles by Prof. William Harris, in which he stressed the importance of reading aloud in learning latin. This is totally contrary to what currently i am doing--i tend to decode latin into english and do gramatical analysis in my mind. The direct-connection approach of Prof. Harris is quite sensible in cultivating a latin mentality, and i'm planning to follow it.
Here comes the question: How could make sure that my pronunciation is correct? Are there suitable latin audio chips that i can follow? Or can i read latin just following my heart?
I'm a newcomer here. I don't know whether this question has been discussed or not. If it has been done, the links would be very appreciated. All in all, any comments are welcome. Thanks!
