Greek Course at Latinum

Restored Classical Greek Pronunciation is used in all of these recordings, even those of nineteenth century Greek. 
It would be a simple matter for a student to regularly listen to Greek videos on Youtube with Greek subtitles to also learn the Modern Greek pronunciation, which is similar enough for the switch to be made effortlessly; a serious student of Greek should be able to operate in both pronunciations.
 For the relationship between Early Modern Greek and Ancient Greek,  see  The Modern Greek, its pronunciation and relations to Ancient Greek by T.T. Timayenis (1877) (Note: This text is slightly bombastic!)
and
The Modern Greek Language in its Relation to Ancient Greek by Geldart (1870) (Note: This text is academic.)
 The course I have devised begins with:

1. LAAS D'AGUEN

Greek Introduction (1859)    (Text.) as a short road to Ancient Greek. The emphasis here is on building a practical vocabulary; the sentences are all short. There is no formal grammar; forms are taught implicitly.

Then the course continues with:

2. STEDMAN 


And after this, new vocabulary and simple forms are reinforced using:

3. ORBIS  GRAECO-LATINUS


Then Kendrick's Attic Greek course, which includes formal grammar, is introduced:

4. KENDRICK

Greek Ollendorff - Attic Greek Course, with similarities to Adler's Practical Grammar of the Latin Language. (Text)

Prendergast's Latin Mastery Course

Latin Mastery

This course is intended for Latin Teachers and more advanced students of Latin wishing to gain more fluency in mental processing of their Latin - oral proficiency in spoken Latin is a welcome side effect. 
This course is intended for Latin Teachers and more advanced students of Latin wishing to gain more fluency in mental processing of their Latin - oral proficiency in spoken Latin is a welcome side effect. 
 A complete beginner will benefit greatly from the Latin Mastery course, but it will be hard work.
 A more gradual introduction is provided by the Adler Audio Course, which, when combined with Comenius, make for a fantastic introduction to Latin. This course could be used alongside those, or as a follow-on from using them.
Alternative audio courses available in Latinum's audiobook catalogue are D'Ooge's Latin Audio Course, or the Serial and Oral Introductory Course 

LATIN MASTERY

 Linguam Latinam non ex infinitis grammaticorum praeceptis, sed ex veterum librorum lectione et imitatione comparandam esse.
The Latin language is not acquired from an infinity of grammatical rules, but from reading the books of the ancients, and through imitation.

Jacob Flacciolatus , anno 1715 

Textbook: Prendergast's Mastery Series (Latin)    (Second Edition) (TEXT)
Textbook: Prendergast's Mastery Series (Latin)    (Third Edition) (TEXT)

NOTE: Prendergast strongly advises the student NOT to look at the text, but to make this a completely oral exercise.

THE METHOD

How does Prendergast's Latin Mastery work? There is a carefully structured series of statements in English, which you need to immediately translate orally into Latin. 
Each exercise starts with a simple phrase or sentence, and then builds the sentence up phrase by phrase and clause by clause, ending with a complex sentence.
A bell is sounded, followed by a brief pause, which should provide sufficient time for you to translate. Following the pause, a model translation is given. Pay close attention to your word order. 
If you need more time, press pause. You should repeat the lesson until you find pausing unnecessary.
Although this course is intended for students and teachers who have already studied Latin for some years, beginners can nevertheless make use of these exercises by repeatedly listening to and attempting the oral Latin answers. 
If you are a beginner, your progress will be very slow, as you will more or less need to memorise the answers. Prendergast assumes a beginner working on this course for at the minimum of an hour a day, with three separate periods of 20 minutes per day,  would take three years to complete it, and that only ten minutes of new exercises should be attempted per day, with the rest of the time spent in intensive review. 
Thanks to F. Pina and E. Arnold for proofing the audio as I release it.

NEW AUDIOBOOK: L. Annaeus Florus' Short Version of Roman History, in a Latin paraphrase by John Stirling.

NEW AUDIOBOOK: L. Annaeus Florus' Short Version of Roman History, in a Latin paraphrase by John Stirling. Currently in production at http://latinum.org.uk

Lucius Annaeus Florus (c. 74 AD – c. 130 AD) was a Roman historian who lived in the time of Trajan and Hadrian. He was born in Africa.
He compiled, chiefly from Livy, a brief sketch of the history of Rome from the foundation of the city to the closing of the temple of Janus by Augustus (25 BC). The work is written in a rhetorical style – a hymn to the greatness of Rome, the life of which is divided into the periods of infancy, youth and manhood.

New Latin Audiobook: Maud Reed's 'JULIA'

Latinum has released a new Latin Language audiobook - 'Julia', by Maud Reed.

This Latin audiobook contains stories of Roman myth, legend, pseudo-history, and history. The conceit of the book is that the stories were recited to a young girl, Julia, an inhabitant of Roman Britain.  The audiobook is for the most part quite elementary, and is intended for beginners, although all levels of students of Latin benefit from listening to 'comprehensible input', and so-called easy Latin can still boost a more advanced students' fluency.
