    Gents,

    Before diving into Greek & Latin at the Seminary level this Fall, I'd like to begin the trek into learning Latin.

    Those who have learned it, where would you direct me to start on this journey?

    Thank you!

    Once you have mastered the basics, get yourself over to this and use it:

    A little known, but very fine tool for dealing with ancient ecclesial documents.

    Ive been learning latin on my own for the past 1 1/2 Years. I use wheelocks since there are a decent amount of resources online that use it. It’s not always as clear as I would like but overall it’s easy to follow.

    Where are you attending?

    @Ask Mr. Religion thank you! My 9 year old boy is wanting to learn. We’re doing this together before bedtime each night.

    Try the A, B, and C Latin primers available from Classical Academic Press.

    I'm really old school - having first learned Latin 35 years ago - and Wheelock is my go-to resource.

    I am using Wheelock per recommendation from a Latin professor that I know.

    Find Latin put to kid songs. We are doing that with my daughter and it really helped me.

    A Primer of Ecclesiastical Latin by John F. Collins is supposed to be pretty good. Westminster Seminary in California has used it as a text.
