D'Ooge 'Latin for Beginners' Audio Course

Latinum, the home of the Adler Latin audio course, moved its extensive audio catalogue to Patreon on the 14th of April 2017.

Firstly - why Patreon? 
Patreon allows me to offer you, for a small monthly subscription (which you are not locked in to - you can cancel at any time), access my entire back catalogue of course material.

Think this is expensive? Check out my Price Comparison page.

What do you get if you become a patron (subscriber) of Latinum?
Every patron (subscriber) can  access and stream hundreds of hours of quality Latin audiobooks and other audio resources from the streaming catalogue, for a very low monthly subscription. 

Higher reward tier patrons are offered an incredible deal - the ability to download a large catalogue of audiobooks as zip files.   

Benjamin D'Ooge's 
 'Latin for Beginners'
This  traditional Latin textbook, dating from the very early 20th Century, was produced in audio in November 2009. Many students still enjoy using it, and it is popular with people 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 than either Underwood or Adler. 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.

  1. Excellent course. Audio is very clear, pronunciation perfect, pace is just right. This is easily worth many times the price.

  2. Is this all of the lessons from the book, or just the first 6 lessons in part 2?

  3. This is the entire book.

  4. Thank you for creating such a wonderful collection . My Latin was absolutely terrible before I tried this. I'm still learning and I can't wait to learn more!!
