Resource Page: Latin

Here you can find all the resources that we are using for the Latin Intermediate-Advanced Reading Challenge. Some are paid, some are free- all are good. If you aren't taking part in the challenge, the resources still stand out and are recommended.

Stage One: 

Review

Here are the three courses that enabled me to reach an intermediate level. If you have read these, but it's been a while, these books are a great way to get back into the groove. 

Stage Two:

More Elementary Courses 

Here is a selection of excellent coursebooks that should be considered by every Latin student for additional reading practice. 

Stage Three:

Free Readers

Here is a selection of ten graded readers that I have tested for readability. They're free, so great!

Stage Four:

Orberg's Intermediate Readers

Here is a selection of readers that compliment Orberg's LLPSI (see Stage One). Some are more difficult than others, but they should be obtained and read for additional practice. 

Stage Five:

Roma Aeterna

The notoriously difficult follow up to Han Orberg's Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata. Get through this and you're at an advanced level. Simple.

Stage Six:

Medieval Latin Readers

Latin doesn't stop at Rome! A juicy introduction to the often ghastly, sometimes distorted world of Medieval Latin. 

About Me

My name is Neil and I have been teaching English professionally for almost 20 years, the last ten of which at my language school. 

Apart from a diploma in teaching English as a foreign language (Cert Tesol), I have a BA in modern and Classical Chinese. I also speak Spanish, Italian, and French, and read Latin. 

Besides continuing my daily studies of these languages, I have also set myself a language goal of one new language a year. I’m looking forward to starting Japanese or German on the 1st January 2021.
