Description

Full-color edition. Hans Ørberg’s Lingua Latina per se illustrata is the world’s premiere textbook for learning Latin via the Natural Method. Students first learn grammar and vocabulary intuitively through extended contextual reading and an innovative system of marginal notes. It is the only textbook currently available that gives students the opportunity to learn Latin without resorting to translation, but allows them to think in the language. It is also the most popular text for teachers, at both the secondary and collegiate levels, who wish to incorporate conversational skills into their classroom practice.

Familia Romana is the backbone of the Ørberg series. The text can be paired with any number of additional readers and study materials designed specifically to accompany this text and available directly from Focus Publishing.

Features

  • The most comprehensive treatment of Latin grammar available in an elementary textbook.
  • A vocabulary of almost 1,800 words, reinforced by constant and creatively phrased repetition, vastly expands the potential for later sight reading. The accompanying vocabulary is available free to download here at our site here.
  • A complete line on ancillary volumes, exercises, and readers both in print and online.
  • Seasoned secondary and college teachers often find their own reading facility enhanced by using Lingua Latina.

Market

An Introduction to Latin, this is a 2 semester sequence/full year Latin course at the college level, high school level, homeschool age (as young as 9) and middle school appropriate. It is designed for anyone interested in learning Latin, regardless of your native language.
