Pretty Lessons in Verse

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.   

Sarah Coleridge's 
'Pretty Lessons in Verse'

Sara Coleridge, sister of the celebrated poet, has written a lovely collection of poems for teaching Latin, addressed to dear Henry and Edith, the children. I suppose her brother had a hand in these delightful verses as well, which make learning a foundational Latin vocabulary a little bit easier. Read as an audiobook by Molendinarius.

  1. Gratias tibi ago. Thank you Evan.

    You are doing a great job, it must takes hours of work.

    1. You made some mp3 of the noun declensions. I am working on verbs now and would find similar mp3 on the conjugations of verbs helpful. You could read out the verb conjugations and add some of your own helpful comments.
    2. I am using Henle right now. It has lots of practice exercises. Mp3 s of Henle would be helpful too.

  2. This is a rare gem of a site for learning Latin. It is a phenomenal compilation of many drill courses. If you download the book for Adler from google it is a great idea, and a lot of the other material also has free pdfs available on google or
    The course - you must go through it methodically as suggested by the creator/developer. Exercise patience with Latin as it is different from other languages! It's not an overnight achievement! It will come in time and so you will have to go through podcasts patiently. Get a tutor - if you can find one - and you'll pay through the nose! Thank you Latinum!
