Teach Yourself takes the pain out of picking up a new language

Get Started in Latin requires no prior experience in the language and gives you the opportunity to study at a reasonable, steady pace. This course makes the process nearly painless--it is written in a friendly and supportive tone, and the structure offers you plenty of opportunities for self-practice. You are in control of your learning experience, so you never feel overwhelmed or rushed.

This practical course introduces the new language without inundating you and includes dialogues and exercises, a helpful pronunciation section, manageable lists of practical vocabulary, a glossary of grammar terms, and more.

The accompanying audio CD features recordings by native speakers and contains dialogues from the book as well as exercises in listening and speaking..
