I teach Latin primarily through speaking Latin and reading Latin stories, starting from the most basic words and phrases. Grammar is by no means ignored, but I attempt to treat Latin as I would any other language. I have found this approach is far superior to the conventional focus on memorizing grammar and vocabulary for the purpose of translating texts. As a speaker of Latin I have a much greater freedom and command of the language than I ever had in my years of doggedly translating with a dictionary to lean on. I am very sensitive to students, and take lessons as slowly or quickly as they advance.

About Logan K.

I studied Latin for many years through the conventional method of using vocabulary and a grammatical schema to translate a text into English.

When I discovered Latin was indeed spoken by many people and began to learn myself to speak, I discovered I could pick up a Latin text and understand it without reference to vocabulary or grammar: it simply meant something to me on its own in that mysteriously self-evident way something in one's native language does.

I should like to share the delight of this discovery with any others who are starting out studying what they think is a dead language and wishing there were some way to get past all the stale and lifeless grammar and memorization (though I must say, for those that feel the same, that I do enjoy studying grammar very much, though I do not trust it as a means to learning Latin, which can be learned better more or less the same way any other language can).
