Lingua Latina Set

Hans Orberg's Lingua Latina per se illustrata is the world's premiere textbook 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 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.

The Lingua Latina series incorporates the following features:

  • A comprehensive treatment of Latin grammar.
  • 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.

Familia Romana is the backbone of the Orberg series. The text can be paired with any number of additional readers and study materials designed specifically to accompany this text.

Lingua Latina is a complete, universal series that allows students to read and understanding Latin immediately. All words and forms are made clear in the context of reading, illustrations, or marginal notes. The series itself consists of a first year books, Part I: Familia Romana covering the essentials of Latin grammar and 1500 vocabulary words through a story of a Latin family in the 2nd Century A.D. The second book, Part II: Roma Aeterna, cover Roman History and the city of Rome, including a prose version of Virgil's Aeneid I-IV, adapted texts from Livy, and unadapted texts from Livy, Aulus Gellius, Nepos, Sallust, Cicero and Horace.

The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy's engaging mythical history of Rome's foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with a text that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections, which make up the majority of the text, are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right.
