Basics of Latin Video Lectures by Derek Cooper, alongside the accompanying Basics of Biblical Latin textbook, introduces students, independent learners, and homeschoolers to the basics of Latin grammar with all readings and exercises taken from texts in the Christian tradition.

As part of the well-known Zondervan “Basics” suite of research languages for the study of Christian Scripture and theology, these videos are student-friendly, designed to make learning to read Latin accessible.

The video lessons help students learn by:

  • Minimizing technical jargon

    (I'll post this same review on the videos and book.) The videos follow the book pretty tightly. Good primer for Latin beginners who need enough grammar and vocabulary to begin reading latin theology and the Latin Vulgate. I love how the introduction in the book by showing the reader that “approximately 80 percent” of Latin literature comes from Christian authors, rather than classic authors such as Cicero, Caesar, and Virgil. Cooper clearly loves the language and the rich history of Latin Theology throughout western civilization. There are 25 vocabulary words after each chapter and these words are chosen to help us read Christian literature and the Nova Vulgata. I'm glad Cooper teaches the class in classical pronunciation. My one request is for a one page complete chart of declensions. These kinds of memorization tools aren't found in the book anywhere from what I can find.
