This book on learning Latin is absolutely wonderful! I have been working at learning Latin so I can teach it to my children. I have looked at many books, and this is, by far, the best. Ms. Harwood obviously was a phenomenal instructor because her book is concise, clear, and helpful and, yes, even fun! She orders the learning effectively, has timely and helpful exercises (with answers in the back), and has clear pronunciation notated throughout. This is no mere reference book, but a tool for really learning Latin well. I am so thankful I stumbled upon her book during my years of searching! I highly recommend it!

This book could use more exercises. For a language like Latin, the more the better. But, to be fair, all pedagogical-type titles in this series could use either more practice material in the "Guide" book or be supplemented with a corresponding exercise book. Also, this book does not make a distinction between long and short vowels, which Latin had and most all other textbooks recognize.

I am a first year, first semester student of the Latin language and I ordered this book from Amazon a few days ago to help me gain a better understanding of what I am being taught in class. I must confess that this book has been a wonderful and helpful tool. One of the beginning difficulties of any language is pronunciation, and this book totes an "idiot proof guideline" for pronunciation and usage. Moreover, the book helps you develop a strong vocabulary with "vocabulary builders." However, what I am slowly realizing is that understanding Latin grammar/context, etc. involves learning, memorizing and understanding the endings of words (i.e. verb, noun, adjective endings). This book helps the reader to grasp these endings and gives tips on remembering them and using them (this has been very helpful). The last thing I have found helpful in this book is its simplistic way of helping me through the grammar (which is easy to get bogged down in). If you are just starting out in Latin, or you simply want to brush up on your existing knowledge of Latin, then this is definitely the book for you.

Yes, Wheelock's is the standard text for this topic--but for anyone who's interested in learning Latin on their own without the assistance of a college professor, it's less than appealing. That's where Harwood comes in, full of energy and humor and yes, hard work. There is still study involved in learning Latin--there are exercises and you will need to practice, like any other foreign language--but this book does make the subject more enjoyable than many of the other texts out there, with a logical structure (Harwood's years of teaching experience and lesson plans led to a killer outline) and lots of relevant examples. There is no comparable book, really--nobody else manages to take a light tone yet still convey all that is still relevant about the infamous "dead" language. It's more alive here than you'll find in any other instructional book!
Contancia
One the one hand I like the author's approach, concentrating on spotting the key endings and forgetting about all the grammar involved. However, when it comes to the practice translations, that exercise is not motivational at all. For example, one of the sentences we are given to translate from Latin to English in Chapter 15 is "The gourmets want to add among the honored those things born from the earth which have been excluded from the law." Frankly, I have trouble making sense of the English sentence, let alone translate from the Latin. I'm not advocating the Latin version of "See Dick run" as practice, but doing the easy thing and lifting sentences from ancient Latin texts as beginner's practice is, in my opinion, promoting failure on the part of the first time learner. The author introduces a lot of such sentences as "practice", all without context, and, unless you are really a gifted learner, virtually impossible to come close to a correct translation.
