Lingua Latina per se Illustrata is also the most popular series for those teachers at both the secondary and collegiate levels who wish to develop Latin conversational skills in the classroom. Familia Romana (the main book of Pars I of the Lingua Latina per se illustrata series) contains thirty-five chapters and describes the life of a Roman family in the 2nd century A.D.

It culminates in readings from classical poets and Donatus’s Ars Grammatica, the standard Latin school text for a millennium. 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).

10. Remembering the Kanji 1: A Complete Course on How Not to Forget the Meaning and Writing of Japanese Characters

Author: by James W. Heisig
University of Hawaii Press
496 pages

View on Amazon

Updated to include the 196 new kanji approved by the Japanese government in 2010 as general-use kanji, the sixth edition of this popular text aims to provide students with a simple method for correlating the writing and the meaning of Japanese characters in such a way as to make them both easy to remember.

It is intended not only for the beginner, but also for the more advanced student looking for some relief from the constant frustration of forgetting how to write the kanji, or for a way to systematize what he or she already knows.

The author begins with writing the kanji becausecontrary to first impressionsit is in fact simpler than learning how to the pronounce them. By ordering the kanji according to their component parts or primitive elements, and then assigning each of these parts a distinct meaning with its own distinct image, the student is led to harness the powers of imaginative memory to learn the various combinations that make up the kanji.

In addition, each kanji is given its own key word to represent the meaning, or one of the principal meanings, of that character. These key words provide the setting for a particular kanji’s story, whose protagonists are the primitive elements.

Author: by Frederic M. Wheelock
Collins Reference
608 pages

View on Amazon

For nearly sixty years, Wheelock’s Latin has remained the optimus liber of beginning Latin textbooks. When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock’s Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; one reviewer predicted that the book “might well become the standard text” for introducing students to elementary Latin.

Now, nearly six decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate. This new edition of Wheelock’s Latin has all of the features, many of them improved and expanded, that have made it the bestselling single-volume beginning Latin textbook: 40 chapters with grammatical explanations and readings drawn from the works of Rome’s major prose and verse writers; Self-tutorial exercises, each with an answer key, for independent study; An extensive EnglishLatin/LatinEnglish vocabulary section; A rich selection of original Latin readingsunlike other Latin textbooks, which contain primarily made-up texts; Etymological aids, maps, and dozens of images illustrating aspects of the classical culture and mythology presented in the chapter readings.
