DOoge - Latin for Beginners. Duration: 13h11m
Duration 13h 11 minutes
This popular traditional Latin textbook, dating from the late 19th Century, was produced in audio in November 2009. Many students still enjoy using it, and it is particularly popular with people self-studying Latin at home. My view is that it is useful to use a variety of textbooks; not every author explains every point the same way. Also, reading or listening to a variety of explanations of the same points is good, and increases the chance of learning the material thoroughly. D'Ooge uses more formal grammatical terminology. His method is known as 'grammar-translation'. This audio course adds a third dimension to his textbook, turning it into a comprehensible input source as well. D'Ooge's textbook also comes with a mini Latin reader with a graded selection of prose in basic Latin. The pdf that the audio was produced from is provided for your convenience.
