Henle First Year Latin Text
First-year text to launch you on your Latin journey
|Audience||First-year Latin students (grade 7+); used in Classical Conversations communities in Challenge A, B, and I|
|Accessibility||Challenging; the majority of students will require help|
|Ease of use||Fairly tight spacing; students will need to complete work and take notes separately|
|Author||Robert Henle, S.J.|
Originally published in 1945, the Henle Latin series teaches Latin traditionally, rigorously, and in an orderly, systematic manner. This text contains all of the exercises and readings for the course. In the first year, a limited vocabulary of 500 words allows students to master grammar without being overwhelmed with a large vocabulary. Many repetitious Latin phrases and copious exercises produce mastery rather than frustration, while exercises and readings teach Roman and Christian history and compare the pagan and Christian worldviews. In addition, Henle provides valuable insight into the history of the Church, providing an excellent opportunity for Christians to trace their heritage back to its ancient origins.
Henle teaches grammar and syntax in a separate 250-page Grammar Manual, which is used as a handy reference throughout the program.
