    1 thought on “Reading Latin: Grammar, Vocabulary and Exercises”

    1. A really good text for mature beginners or amateurs of Latin. Needs to be read in conjunction with the other two books in the series for full effect. Be warned though, while this isn't a "grammar first" book like the horrid 'Wheelock's Latin', it should perhaps be supplemented by a real beginners cause like Cambridge, that starts off a bit simpler and introduces grammar more naturally. Still, you can't beat this if you're studying alone, and particularly if you're interested in translation.

    2. The LGV&E starts with the very basics of Latin and builds gradually into conjugation and declension. A very good book to learn Latin if you're a mature student and being introduced to Latin for the first time.

    3. I did learn to read Latin quickly with these, but not efficiently. I don't think they are formated to re-enforce principles learned as much as to force them to learn them on your own. Unfortunately these are the best available and I have no desire to write Latin textbooks. Zero.

    4. The most helpful Latin grammar I've used so far. Lots of exercises and vocabulary. You should come out being able to read and understand at least S. Jerome's Vulgate.
