BOOKS AND MATERIALS

Getting Started with Latin: Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age

  • Author: William E. Linney
  • Publisher/Copyright: : Armfield Academic Press, 2007. Print.
  • ISBN: 0979505100        978-0979505102
  • Supplier: Retail or Amazon.com

Worktext with 134 daily lessons; answer key is included in the back of the book.

 

 
This worktext has 134 daily lessons.  The answer key is included in the back of the book: Mom, be sure to secure those pages somehow to avoid giving the student too much temptation.  We will be using this book four days weekly for up to thirty minutes each lesson.  If the student doesn’t need all of that time to finish the assignment—great!  If the student is consistently using significantly more time than that, call your advisor for some ideas on how the student can learn more efficiently.  This is a workbook-based course, making it a self-teaching and independent activity for the student.  If the student needs support, Mom, keep it to clarifying instructions, helping the student develop charts and notes, and providing a sound grammar reference book for the student.   
          Each lesson is a bare bones presentation of a new word and the grammar needed to support it, and eventually includes up to ten sentences to translate from Latin to English and/or English to Latin.  It is starting point Latin, no prior experience needed.  Latin expressions are discussed at some little length throughout the worktext to enhance cultural literacy (hurray!).
          Mr. Linney outlines the best way to use this book on pages xiii-xv of the text itself, and free recordings of Mr. Linney speaking each word and exercise aloud and a host of other resources are available online at
