Learning Latin makes you enjoy reading literature more. You can find countless Latin words and phrases throughout history’s most iconic literary works. When a reader unfamiliar with Latin encounters these words and phrases, they simply overlook them and miss the interesting and sometimes even critical information that the Latin learner easily absorbs and enjoys. If you are not com­fort­able with a book entire­ly writ­ten in Latin and wish to have a trans­la­tion, then Assim­il is the book foryou.

To get the most out of Assim­il, you need to lis­ten to the record­ings of all the dia­logues repeat­ed­ly to start devel­op­ing an intu­itive under­stand­ing ofLatin.Although the trans­la­tions and com­ments are in French, you could still get a lot out of the book by read­ing and lis­ten­ing to the dia­logues. With­out the French notes and trans­la­tions, you should per­haps wait until you have a foun­da­tion inLatin.

Over the last century you’ve had these two paths. You can either have the old-fashioned serious books of the 19th century, the 1920s, 30s which are a little dull and dry. Then there are ones like the Cambridge Latin Course, which fall over themselves to be nice and easygoing and therefore useless. Oulton is in the middle. It has all the hard stuff—and, as you say, it’s very heavy on grammar—but his examples are a little lighter and more pleasurable than the 19th century ones. So it squares the circle. A good text­book, like Famil­ia Romana, will teach you a good deal of the most fre­quent aspects of Latin in terms of vocab­u­lary and gram­mar. How­ev­er, to progress, you need to read more Latin beyond the text­book. Read­ers are a great way to encounter a wider range of vocabulary—and also sub­ject matter. Assim­il Le Latin Sans Peine is best used in con­junc­tion with a com­plete foun­da­tion­al course in Latin like Famil­ia Romana. This way, you get a strong foun­da­tion from FR while at the same time dis­cov­er inter­est­ing pas­sages from two mil­len­nia of Latin literature. Sive, Catalogus stirpium quae in insula Norfolk annis 1804 et 1805 a Ferdinando Bauer collectae et depictae, nunc in Museo caesareo palatino rerum naturalium Vindobonae servantur (Latin) (as Author) Scientific vocabulary, whether in the field of medicine, binomial nomenclature (scientific name), and even computer science, usually includes Latin words and roots. Philosophical terms like ad hoc, ad hominem, tabula rasa, priori, and a posteriori are all Latin terms.
