Resource Page: Latin: Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata

I've said it before and I'll say it again- this is the single best introductory language textbook I've ever seen.I implore all learners of Latin to go out right now and read this!

Familia Romana

This is the main textbook you'll need for the course. You don't actually need any more, but the other two will help.

Note- The textbook is entirely in Latin, so you can buy any version you wish. They're all the same.



A College Companion 

An excellent companion to the main textbook which might help you get even more out of your Lingua Latina. Not written by Orberg himself.


Colloquia Personarum

An excellent reader that supplements the first 25 lessons in LLPSI. Definitely recommended.
