Get Started in Latin Absolute Beginner Course

(Book and audio support)

By G D A Sharpley

  • Mixed media product
  • £34.99

Get started reading, speaking and listening in Latin. Ideal for complete beginners, this course comprises a book and free online audio support.

Get Started in Latin is the course to follow if you are taking your first steps in Latin, whether classical or medieval. Follow a Latin story set in a medieval monastery, where conspiracy unfolds in the cloisters, Vikings threaten to attack, and young lovers set out to unmask the villains. And discover the principal authors of classical Latin and read quotations from their writings.

The audio for this course is available for free on library.teachyourself.com or from the Teach Yourself Library app.

The audio contains readings of the story and of the classical authors (you will learn the grammar and vocabulary in the book, not in the audio). All the Latin we are left with now are seemingly lifeless letters on a page or in stone. In its day Latin was a language to be heard: readings in the ancient world were recitals and performances - poems, speeches, histories even. So while you may not need the audio to learn the ABC of the language, you do if you want to experience and enjoy Latin to the full. And how do we know how it sounded? Find out inside.

The ideal course to learn Latin if you're a beginner, this new edition includes:
-An introduction to classical Latin authors - ancient writers like Cicero, Tacitus and Virgil
-A medieval story: a Latin 'whodunnit' - practising each new point of language
-Grammatical explanations and vocabulary support in each unit
-Lots of exercises - to practise each new point of language
-Discover how Latin evolved through the centuries - and its immense impact on English
-Listen to the story and the classical authors on audio - to experience the sound of Latin

The best part of the book is its lively narrative. The students become quite involved with the characters. As carefully graded passages [the story sections] are much more useful than another collection I have used. The practice sections are excellent. — Dr Conrad O’Briain, Trinity College Dublin

Nocturna

Maya Motayne
Authors:
Maya Motayne

Fates collide and darkness is unleashed in this lush, own-voices Latin-inspired fantasy, perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Leigh Bardugo and V. E. Schwab. Magic is everywhere, and in everything.To Finnian Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the throat of anyone who crosses her, and a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks. As a talented faceshifter, it's been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that's exactly how she likes it. But when she gets caught by a powerful mobster, she's forced into an impossible mission: steal a legendary treasure from Castallan's royal palace or be stripped of her magic forever.To Prince Alfehr magic is an escape, but one that comes with a price. First in line for the throne after the disappearance of his older brother, Alfie is desperate to find him and bring him home, even if it means dabbling in forbidden magic.And when Finn and Alfie's fates collide, they realise magic can be other things too, and the type they accidentally release into the world is something neither expects, or understands.It's hungry.

Experience significant results in a remarkably short period of time thanks to the unique Michel Thomas Method, perfected over 50 years by celebrated linguist Michel Thomas. The method works in tune with how the brain prefers to receive, store and then retrieve information. You'll stick with it, because you'll love it.* Pick up Swedish naturally and unforgettably, without strain* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing* Build up your Swedish in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourselfHow does it work?During this eight-hour live course, given by Michel Thomas Method teachers Håkan Rosenqvist and Roger Nyborg, you will learn the language along with two students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. Within the first hour you will be able to construct simple sentences. By the end of the course, you will have the confidence to understand and speak basic Swedish. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary, and complete the course in about 20-30 hours.Why is it so successful? 'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel ThomasMichel Thomas believed that the greatest barrier to any form of learning was stress: stress from worrying about remembering what you are being taught, stress from being afraid to make a mistake, stress from failing.With the Michel Thomas Method, all the attention is focused on removing stress and tension from the learning environment. The teacher takes on full responsibility for your understanding, and therefore your remembering, of what is being taught. In fact, the Michel Thomas Method forbids you from trying to memorize. There's no writing, no books, no homework.The Michel Thomas Method works by stripping away all inessential language and breaking down the most important language into its component parts. Crystal-clear building blocks are then presented, and only when they are absorbed and understood is the next piece of the puzzle introduced, enabling you to reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want.What's in the Course?Foundation Swedish with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 8 hours of audio on CD.
