Grumio est coquus.
Deus meum! Caecillius in horto non est!
So far the best way to learn an older language.
I got interest in learning latin after reading Seneca. This course is just like how one learns a language naturally by listening and looking at visuals. The iBooks here are great. The book has audio for the short stories and sample sentences. Also they introduce grammar gradually. Some purists would rather one starts on Wheelock's but remember when you were in school how grammar was really boring and you needed to memorize all the rules? Grammar here is learned by reading the examples and you pick it up as you go along. I am already up to Stage 5 of Unit 1. One more point, English is 60 percent latin based. So learning latin is rather easy.
This is a good introductory course book, perhaps for a high school Latin class. The multimedia interface is engaging to be sure, but I feel over all that Wheelock does a much better and more thorough job of explaining terminology, building vocabulary, and teaching the subtleties and nuances of an inflected language.
Its starts slw which is good. They did good job integrating audio, video, interactive, as well as text components together. Too bad the only have the first two units....
