This volume is the completely reset Second Edition of Jeanne Marie Neumann's A College Companion (Focus, 2008).
It offers a running exposition, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. Ørberg's Familia Romana, and includes the complete text of the Ørberg ancillaries Grammatica Latina and Latin–English Vocabulary. It also serves as a substitute for Ørberg's Latine Disco, on which it is based. As it includes no exercises, however, it is not a substitute for the Ørberg ancillary Exercitia Latina I.
Though designed especially for those approaching Familia Romana at an accelerated pace, this volume will be useful to anyone seeking an explicit layout of Familia Romana's inductively-presented grammar. In addition to many revisions of the text, the Second Edition also includes new units on cultural context, tied to the narrative content of the chapter.
"Thanks to Jeanne Neumann for her wonderful work in updating this work. First, as a homeschool user, I was glad to see the removal of the word
'College' from the title, making it more evident that this is a resource for use with Familia Romana regardless of one's schooling level. Second, the cultural notes for each chapter are a wonderful addition! Third, I appreciate the small typography changes made to the various grammatical notes and vocabulary lists, making them even easier to utilize. I also treated us to the newer edition of Familia Romana with color illustrations and look forward to using these two resources together as we continue in our Latin studies. This excellent Companion makes homeschool Latin much more attainable to those of us without a Latin background!"
