Career[ edit ] From to he worked in the Naturmetodens Sproginstitut, an institute where the languages are taught according to the " natural method " of learning. While there he created a new course in Latin: Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicata published in The method has been revised a few times, including in and , the title now changed to Lingua Latina per se illustrata. Words are always introduced in a context which reveals the meaning behind them. Grammar is gradually made more complex, until the student is reading unadapted Latin texts. Unusual for a Latin course, pronunciation and understanding, rather than translation, are stressed.

Each chapter is divided into two or three lessons lectiones of a few pages each followed by a grammar section Grammatica Latina and three exercises Pensa. The book also includes a table of declensions, a Roman calendar, and a word index index vocabulorum. They would completely revolutionize the classroom, and I would urge all teachers of first-year Latin at universities and all high school teachers to seriously consider adopting this radical approach to learning Latin.
The Second Edition offers full-color versions of the illustrations that appeared in the First Edition. The strength of these dialogues is also that they are amusing and fun. Students can perform the skits by reading them and acting. Such practice lets students improve their pronunciation while having fun. I also like the charts and the vocabulary at the end fo the book.
Nice illustrations in color. It offers a running exposition, in English, of the Latin grammar covered in Hans H. 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. The set may be purchased with a hardcover edition of Familia Romana and a paperback edition of A Companion to Familia Romana, or with paperback editions of each volume.
Instructor examination copy orders of the set will include paperback editions of each volume. Add to Cart.
