D'ooge level

Post by latin student » Fri Nov 07, 2014 8:48 am

I'll be using D'Ooge for learning latin. Right now I am in the process of printing and putting together my studying materials and space.

I was wondering, how far will D'Ooge take a student? I'll use that textbook anyway, but it would be nice to know.

Will I be able to express myself in latin by the end of it?

I only just started on D'ooge awhile ago, but from what I understand it's mainly designed to get you up to the level where you'll be able to understand Caesar's Commentarii de bello Gallico, aka Commentaries on the Gallic War. I believe that'd be consistent with a year of Latin at most universities, or two semesters.

I too am curious about the outcome of using the D'Ooge book. I believe you should be able to get through Caesar's Gallic Wars. The preface states, "To make the course preparatory to Caesar at the same time systematic, thorough, clear, and interesting is the purpose of this series of lessons"

The vocabulary is based on the most used words in Caesar as well as other common latin texts like Cicero and Virgil.

It would be interesting to hear from someone who has finished the text, see where they were at when complete and then see where they went next.

Has anyone of you finished the text? I would really appreciate to know the results before I start. Shall I go through any other document for basic vocabulary before going through D'Ooge's book?

Extra reading material wouldn't hurt. The 3 readers in the NewLatin Primer series were meant to be used concurrently and I think they go well with D'Ooge.

There is a typo (or maybe more?) in the OCR edition. Read from this and see if you can make it.
