wheelocks latin 7th edition

Wheelock's Latin

The first part of the Carmenta Latin Course is taught from the beginning Latin text Wheelock’s Latin by Frederic M. Wheelock and Richard A. Lafleur. This particular text is much better organized and considerably clearer (at least in our opinion) than almost any other Latin text we've seen. Learning a language is enough of a challenge without the added difficulty of a confusing and ill-conceived course-book.

Below are some links to sites that sell Wheelock's Latin by Frederic M. Wheelock and Richard A. Lafleur. (Both the 6th and 7th Editions are acceptable for the Carmenta Course.) Be sure to distinguish the actual Wheelock text, though, from similar or ancillary texts (i.e., Wheelock 3d Edition, Workbook for Wheelock's Latin, A Comprehensive Guide to Wheelock's Latin, and Vocabulary Cards and Grammatical Forms Summary for Wheelock's Latin).

Workbook for Wheelock's Latin

Beginning in the first semester (Latin 1A) we also make use of the Workbook for Wheelock's Latin by Paul T. Comeau and Richard A. Lafleur. The Wheelock Workbook provides extra work for the student in the nuts and bolts of Latin grammar and translation. Students use this supplementary text up through Latin 3A.
