Hello. I just recently decided to begin studying Latin. I’ve looked at several textbooks, including Wheelock’s which everyone seems to recommend the most. My problem with most of them is that they don’t teach Latin as a normal foreign language like coursebooks for other languages, like French or German. They teach it from a purely grammatical standpoint, using special terms which, to be honest, I’m not familiar with.
I understand grammar is important and I’m not trying to avoid the difficulties of Latin grammar, but is it necessary to do it this way? Can anyone recommend any Latin coursebooks which teach it like a modern foreign language, without me having to be a grammarian? I love Latin and want to learn it but this has been one of the biggest hindrances for me. Thank you and God bless.
