Chickering's 'First Latin Reader'


This Latin-only reader is based on the sweep of Roman history. Despite its title, it is not suitable for a modern beginner, but is of upper-intermediate level.

 From chapter one it sets off at a handsome trot, in texts of  increasing difficulty, starting with stories about the  founding of Rome, followed by the Roman Kings, then Coriolanus, Cincinnatus, Camillus, Manlius Torquatus, Phyrrus, Hannibal, Scipio, the Gracchi, Marius, Sulla, Pompeius, Caesar, Cato and finally, a brief description of Cicero's life. 

Each chapter is a separate audio file.
5 hours 27 minutes of audio

GCSE Latin Vocabulary
Each word is read in English and Latin, so correct quantity is learned naturally. Hundreds of words are presented - this audio material is intended to be listened to multiple times - initially this will be quite tiring, if not utterly bewildering - however, this system will help to build your vocabulary rapidly, and, if refreshed on a monthly basis, the words you have learned will become consolidated. You will not learn all the words on the first listen through - allow yourself to tune in and out, play it to yourself, and let the material teach itself to you. The speech on this recording is hyper-articulated, so it sounds artificial - this is a learning tool. All the pauses between the words have been removed, so progression through the material sounds unnatural - however,with repeated exposure, this material will engrave the vocabulary.
