I am new and my husband made me join. Looking forward to talk to you all and learning from all of you. :tiphat:
I commute to work everyday and am interested in learning Latin. I was wondering if anyone out there may know of good Latin language tapes.
Thanks for your assistance
I found this one online for Latin Source materials. It sounds pretty good. I did not go through all their links but it’s a place to start your seach. Good Luck.
Latina Christiana: Book I by Cheryl Lowe
1998, Memoria Press, two softcover books and an audio tape, Catholic
This is a popular program among homeschoolers who are interested in introducing the study of Latin during the grammar school years. Pronunciation is Ecclesiastical (rather than Classical), meaning that the pronunciation will be the same as what you would use and hear at a Latin Tridentine Mass and for singing Gregorian chant and other traditional Church music. The program consists of a student text (which resembles a workbook, but is intended as a text), a teacher’s manual (which contains a great deal of the grammar, lesson plans, and supplemental history lessons) and an audio tape, which covers all of the student text (in a Southern accent). Students will learn endings for the first two declensions, but only do translations in the nominative case. For those of you who find the previous sentence baffling, let me just say that this is a very basic beginning in Latin and is not considered very extensive by some (such as Kolbe Academy). Lessons include introduction of familiar Latin phrases (such as Semper fidelis and Anno Domini) and work with derivatives - English words that come from Latin words in each lesson. It is difficult for me to make further judgements for two reasons: 1. I have not yet used this program extensively with my own children (we started it with my oldest, but she was a little too young) and 2. Because I have already studied Latin, it is hard for me to judge how “user-friendly” this program is. Most people I have talked to have been very pleased with this program (which is recommended for 3rd grade and up).
