    It's been said that the best way to learn English grammar is to study Latin. But the corollary is also true, the better your knowledge of English grammar, the easier you will find Latin. But what if you're determined to study Latin (Wheelock's in point) and you find your knowledge (or lack thereof) of English grammar is getting in your way? This little book will come to your rescue. Designed as a companion to Wheelock's, it walks alongside the student providing additional grammatical definitions and instruction, practice exercises, and helpful etymological information. The general tone of the book is conversational laced with the author's wry sense of humor. Take for instance the discussion of English relative clauses (did you know that English has relative clauses?). The book starts with a "bare bones definition", then provides example of how to merge two sentences by utilizing a relative clause which leads to a discussion of English relative pronouns and then Latin relative pronouns which (of course) leads us to an understanding of Latin cases. Anyone who has delved very far into Latin knows that an understanding of "case" is absolutely important. The Comprehensive Guide will take you there. And if you're attempting Wheelock's Latin without a thorough understanding of English grammar you will welcome the guidance. This is a helpful supplement but not part of the actual Wheelock's program. Answers to all exercises are in the back. 307 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Each lesson or exercise is tied to a famous tale from the realm of ancient mythology.

    Whenever you feel the urge (or need) to run through a few Latin declensions, now you'll have no excuse. This CD/DVD set provides just the right sort of "help." Cheryl Lowe (Memoria Press' veteran Latin author and instructor) leads the recitations for declensions, conjugations, adjectives, and adverbs – or, in other words, all Latin grammar forms. Use this CD in the car or at home. The DVD has a power-point type listing of the recitations and might help keep your visual learners oriented. Forms come up in columns and, as they're recited, the accented syllable is changed from red to blue type. This useful set could be used with any Latin program, not just the ones from Memoria Press, and the coverage is so broad, it will last through all the years of Latin study.

    Many students learn just enough Latin to study English vocabulary; if your students are already studying Latin, why not use the Latin they're learning to beef up their English vocabulary at the same time? This book is designed as a supplement to students who are using Latina Christiana I, although it could be used (with a little more effort) with other Latin programs as well. Book of Roots focuses only on Latin words presented in Latina Christiana that have "significant derivations in English vocabulary", so not every Latin word from each LC lesson will be covered in Book of Roots. The lessons are designed to correlate with lessons in LC, and for the two programs to be used side-by-side. The book begins with an introduction, notes to the teacher, an index of Latin roots, a drill form, and an introduction to prefixes and suffixes. Lessons are made up of several pages, each of which focus on one Latin root. The Latin root is given in its complete form, with multiple forms for verbs and nouns. Each form of the root is defined, and its English derivative is given, along with the definition of the English derivative. Exercises ask students to use the English derivatives correctly in a fill-in-the-blank sentence, and grammar questions ask the meaning of prefixes, suffixes, and whole English words that contain Latin roots. In this manner, over 1500 English derivatives are covered – all through Latin! This gives students an excellent vocabulary boost, and helps them remember both their Latin and English words better.

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    A simple plan for learning/recognizing 83.6% of the vocabulary of three Latin anthologies. The Fab 1500 identifies the basic, and most common Latin vocabulary. Using a reproducible worksheet, an enterprising student will write out, translate, and memorize five words each day; reviewing/testing them every fifth day. Working consistently, in four semesters, this list of 1494 words will be known (and memorized if possible). The list starts with the 300 most frequently used Latin words followed by the remainder. Words are first listed in alphabetical (except for the initial 300) and then, with definitions, according to subject categories identified by Paul Bernard Diederich in 1939. Categories include: Gods, Time, Sky, Fire, Water, Earth, Plants, Food, Animals, People, Body, Mind, Feelings, Talk, Writing/Arts, Work/Play, City/Buildings, Military, Government, Social Approval, Evil, Death, Abstractions, and, lastly, Unclassified. 19 pgs, pb, top-bound, spiral binding, portrait orientation. ~ Janice
