Summary

This book provides lessons in classical Latin. Each lesson teaches the learner how to say certain common phrases and ends with a set of exercises. Emphasis is on common vocabulary and there is plenty of repetition.

Although the audiobook can stand on its own, a script for the lessons is available on Amazon.com for those who wish to read along.

A mistake to buy this

I’m trying to learn Latin and so bought this thinking it would be some audio pronunciation guides and then maybe some reading of texts.

How wrong I was! It’s an attempt to do a Latin version of the modern language audio books. I find those difficult and seen as I am neither Catholic nor have I invented a time machine I am very unlikely to have need of conversational Latin.

Maybe it becomes more useful later but it’s not read in the most exciting way (i.e. with almost no inflection and sounding like someone’s hobby project) so I definitely won’t be sticking it. and regret downloading it.

not good at all

Not brilliant IMHO. The guy has a grating voice and his Classical (not ecclesiastical which is different) pronunciation is a bit off .... I already have a certain amount of Latin. I was using this to augment my knowledge and pronunciation. My linguistics proffessor would be horrified. Admittedly I only listened to 5mins but his pronunciation of puella was enough.... sorry.

Works if you put in effort

I have listened twice to it the first time I got little to nothing, the second time I did what was told to do, and I got a lot more out of it this time around.

Y'all in Latin?

The instructor was thorough. Some phrases make no sense in English, but maybe in Latin? He kept saying y'all instead of you all!
