Lingua Latina: Pars I: Familia Romana-Interactive Latin Course is the CD Rom version of the book Lingua Latina: Familia Romana Part I.
Hans Ørberg’s Lingua Latina per se illustrate 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.
Contents of the CD-Rom:
- the complete text of Familia Romana
- an audio-recording of chapters I-XXXI
- a full interactive version of the Pensa
Start by reading the Latin text while listening to the recording. Then read and reread each lesson (marked I,I, III in the margin) and study the section Grammatica Latina carefully, before you pass on to the Pensa.
