О курсе

Over the years of teaching Latin from the excellent and justly renowned textbook "Wheelock's Latin," I have created a series of lectures designed to help students to learn Latin online and get the most of this magnificent book. In them you will find guidance to some of the more perplexing concepts of grammar English and Latin that often comprise an insuperable barrier to progressing in Latin for modern-day students. The lectures will not replace the Wheelock text. They will only, I hope, make your on-ramp smoother. To that end, the lectures track exactly with the chapters of the textbook. This will give you "context sensitive" help when you need it. 

You will not find answers to the exercises or anything that is copyright protected by the publisher of the Wheelock book. To get any benefit from these lectures, you must have the Wheelock text.

A typical college-level class will cover the first 15 chapters in the first semester; a high school class will cover them in the first year.

Best of luck to you!


First Things
Notes on the Sound of Classical Latin

We don't know exactly how classical Latin would have been pronounced, but some conjectures are better than others. In this lecture, I quickly go over the basic agreements of reconstructed classical Latin. You may wonder why we should bother. It's a dead language. True, but trying to pronounce the Latin in front of you really does speed up your mastery. And conversely, over the years I've discovered the truism that those who don't pronounce Latin out loud don't learn it. Fact.
Adding Long Marks over Vowels in Word Quickly
How to Learn Latin (or anything else!)
Tips on establishing a healthy study routine (i.e. how not to waste time). Sorry about the noise at the beginning. I was adjusting the mic.
Chapter 1: The Basics of Verbs; The First Conjugation
Class 1: Basics of Verbs

Latin verbs change their person and number by adding suffixes to the stem. These suffixes correspond to English personal pronouns. Verbs can also show commands and infinitives by changing the ending.

Latin verbs are divided into conjugations depending on the vowel that ends the verbal stem. A verb whose stem ends inā is a first conjugation verb; a verb whose stem ends inē is a second conjugation verb.
Class 2: Verb Stems and Endings
The lecture focuses on the issue of translation. We have three ways to translate a present tense from Latin: the simple present, present emphatic, and present progressive. You'll be able to tell me what each of these means and how they're constructed in English.
Class 3: Review of Verbs
We review the new concepts and forms in this lecture.
Class 4: Review Sheet for Forms and Concepts
The "Forms and Concepts" file for each chapter helps you get a clear idea of what's been covered in the chapter: new forms and new concepts. As you record your new forms, be sure that you include all long marks. Express the new concepts and terms in your own words. These two together forms and concepts will provide you an invaluable resource for drilling and for reviewing.
Class 5: Vocabulary Sheet
The "vocabulary list" file for each chapter gives you a convenient place to record new words and to review them later on. Each word has three columns: dictionary entry, translation, and English derivatives (if any). To review, you can cover up any one or two of the columns and try to produce them from what you can see.

I've add links to two websites: one to the Quia site for drills, and another to the official website for the Wheelock books, where you can hear the chapter vocabulary pronounced correctly.
Please note that after you click on the link, you also have to click on the far upper right on the little box with the arrow to go to the site:

Class 6 Discussion of Self-Tutorial Exercise
There is a comprehensive, chapter-by-chapter set of exercises at the end of the book called "Self-Help Tutorials." These excellent drills give you the chance to review and test your knowledge of the chapter material, and yet many student skip over them.In my lectures on the Self-Tutorials, I help you get started in the exercises my reviewing the major concepts of the chapter and doing a couple of the sentences for you. Please don't hurry through these chapter reviews or pass them by altogether. They are time very well spent.
