One of the most efficient self-study methods available, with extensive recordings of the material, which are essential for the success of the course. This course aims at providing students with a basic grasp of the Latin language, both written and spoken.

Lingua Latina per se illustrata - Pars I: Familia Romana
Hans H. Ørberg , Focus Publishing , 2005
Probably the best Latin method available, already well known throughout the rest of Europe and slowly making an impression in the UK. The course, an outstanding example of the Direct Method advocated in Britain by W.H.D. Rouse, is written entirely in Latin and aims at providing students with a fluent reading ability in the language so that they can enjoy Latin literature in the original with real understanding and appreciation and without being constantly enslaved to dictionaries and grammar books. This first volume covers the essentials of Latin grammar and a basic vocabulary of some 1500 words. Each lesson is divided into a reading section forming a sequence of events in the life of a Roman family in the 2nd century A.D., followed by grammar and exercises. At the end of the book there is a survey of Latin inflection, a Roman calendar, and an index of the vocabulary. There is an accompanying CD-ROM containing the complete text of the book, audio-recordings of the first 30 lessons, and a full interactive edition of the exercises.
