Disce! An Introductory Latin Course, Volume 1

By Kenneth Kitchell, Thomas Sienkewicz

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Sep 30, 2010

Description

Designed to bring students to the point where they can read Latin fluently,

DISCE! combines the best of both the grammar approach and reading method.

 

An original, unified story provides controlled introduction to vocabulary and grammar in context while also utilizing orderly and clear grammar explanations in every chapter. It thus combines the grammar approach and the reading-based approach. The guiding principle throughout is what is best for the student and for the particular concepts being studied at any given moment.  Additionally, Disce! weaves culture throughout the text, and stresses the role of Classical culture in the modern world by the many links drawn between Latin and modern languages, and between Roman practices and modern culture.  Disce! is also the first text to be supported by MyLatinLab, providing the most modern course management and online support to a Classical language.

 

DISCE! is for use in introductory Latin programs and is suitable for both high school and college students.
