i'd prefer D'Ooge since i've been studying with it succesfully, it's really easy to get into it and it could be an option besides wheelock's (since they are some latin sutdy groups focused only in it)

a textbook plus a grammar book and complementary exercises would be great ! :D

can't it be : altera femina eius gallinas vocat instead of alia ? does it make sense ?
