Hans Oerberg's Lingua Latina per se Illustrata is the world's premiere series 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 (Pars I of the Lingua Latina series) contains thirty-five chapters and describes the life of a Roman family in the 2nd century A.D., and culminate in readings from classical poets and Donatus's Ars Grammatica, the standard Latin school text for a millennium. Each chapter is divided into two or three lectiones (lessons) of a couple pages each followed by a grammar section, Grammatica Latina, and three exercises or Pensa. Hans Oerberg's impeccable Latinity, humorous stories, and the Peer Lauritzen illustrations make this work a classic. The book includes a table of inflections, a Roman calendar, and a word index, index vocabulorum. The Lingua Latina series incorporates the following features: The most comprehensive treatment of Latin grammar available in an elementary textbook. A vocabulary of almost 1,800 words, reinforced by constant and creatively phrased repetition, vastly expands the potential for later sight reading. A complete line of ancillary volumes, exercises, and readers both in print and online.

Review:

Sporting full-color illustrations, this edition of "Familia Romana" adds vividness to Hans Orberg s already premiere textbook for learning Latin through the natural method. As part of the "Lingua Latina: per se illustrata" series, Familia Romana presents grammar and vocabulary through context, illustrations, and a well-developed system of notes. By not having to constantly translate, students come to understand the Latin through itself and are prepared for thinking in the language. Although the text is accessible to students as young as 9, the test is advanced enough for college-aged learners, and beyond. Since it is written entirely in Latin, Orberg s series can communicate to students regardless of their native tongue. Thus, no list of vocabulary and translations is provided in this volume. FOCUS Publishing does, however, provide free vocabulary lists with translations at http: //focusbookstore.com/LLdownloads.aspx.

In my own experience as a Latin student, it was not until I used the Lingua Latina series that I really came to understood Latin grammar. Even though it also strengthened my ability to both write and speak in Latin, it was my ability to understand texts and to sight read that was most improved. I enjoyed the edition without illustrations and found it most useful, but this edition proved an upgrade. The more vivid illustrations gave me stronger mental images for the vocabulary I was learning. I recommend this version of "Familia Romana" most warmly.

Synopsis:

Lingua Latina is a complete immersion course providing Latin that students read and understand immediately. Every sentence is intelligible per se because the meaning and function of all new word forms is clear from the context, illustrations, or marginal notes throughout this carefully graded text. Part 1 (Familia Romana) is the eventful and entertaining story of a Roman family, which also serves as an introduction to the life and culture of ancient Rome. Part 2 (Roma Aeterna) tells Roman history from the beginnings. Students who have completed Part 1 are already able to read classical texts, such as Orberg's editions of Caesar's Gallic Wars or of Plautus' Amphitryo. In Part 2, students read extensive selections from classical authors, refine their knowledge of syntax, and develop a vocabulary of over 4000 words. Upon completion of the course, students can read the most challenging classical texts with relative ease.
