This book is wonderful. I used Latin for Reading for two semesters of a three semester beginning Latin sequence. The book approaches learning Latin from an adult perspective. It does not talk down to the student. In fact, I would use this book as a supplement for any linguistics course. I highly recommend this book. The only approach that truly makes sense!

Not really for a beginner

Sorry. No good enough for my needs these days.. Try LATIN: AN INTENSIVE COURSE, Moreland & Fleischer. The best way to learn by oneself.

This "teacher's guide" is by it's own admission a preliminary edition, would that the authors had finished what they started.
This is book is practically worthless as a compainion to "Latin for Reading". All it adds is the translation of a few of the
exercises and no guide to the overview of the rather different approach to teaching Latin that is the heart of "Latin for Readers".

I ordered this thinking it was a textbook with exercises, not realizing it's an instructor's manual. My bad. It will be helpful as an adjunct to other textbooks, though.-

The common texts that have been around since Julius Caesar do not teach learners to "read" Latin. The approach used in Latin For Reading is well tested and works. There is no magic bullet for reading the classics. The magic is in the systematic and linguistic approach used in this text to teach students to read Latin. Only those "poor souls" who are still memorizing declensions in a vacuum will have difficulty appreciating this masterpiece. I taught Latin using this text and couldn't imagine teaching it any other way.

I admit that I am a biased reviewer - I had Professor Knudsvig as my instructor in an Introductory Latin course at the University of Michigan. I would go on to earn a teaching certificate in Latin, as well as Mathematics, and use his text, Latin for Reading, in my first teaching assignment.
I had access to other texts - the Cambridge series, Wheelock's text, and other material - but I chose Latin for Reading as the foundation for my teaching approach. While other texts provide a greater breadth of vocabulary, extended prose, (many exercises in Latin for Reading are 2-3 sentences at most), and historical references, this text provides a fundamental and carefully constructed analytical approach to learning the grammar, syntax and semantics of the Latin language.
For those who would suggest that the exercises in this text are overly difficult, I would suggest that as opposed to other approaches to Latin study, this text, and its concepts of 'kernelling' and sentence mapping, demand an understanding of language at the most basic of levels. In fact, I would use this book as a supplement for any linguistics course.
I highly recommend this book.
This book is written as if the reader already had knowledge of Latin. I do not recommend it for those just beginning their study. It gives long and hard to understand explanations and gives very little exercise in a skill before moving on to something else. This book should be used to review Latin . . . not to learn it!
