I'm trying to prep for seminary, and seeing as I am starting off with Latin 1st semester I want to get a jump start on it. (I'm ok learning languages, but I only know German and English well)
Someone recommended Wheelock, I think. So that's on the way, any other works that might be of use? I'm not completely alone, there's an old friend who will assist from time to time this summer.

My daughter, a former Latin magistra, degree in Latin/classics, recommended Wheelock,among others I have forgotten.

Thanks! I keep hearing Wheelock, so I should be on the right track. A Latin degree would be soooo well matched with classics methinks :clap:

She was a superb teacher, having been a superb scholar.

Eventually maybe she'll teach me.

Update-I'm still starting out, but man this is easier than Deutsche. So much more efficient as a language :D :laughhard
