Praise for Lingua Latina
None of Lingua Latina’s competitors achieve the seamless transition from the author’s Latin to ancient Latin authors that is the hallmark of the Orberg series. When students read unadapted passages from ancient authors in Lingua Latina, they often have the impression that the ancient author’s work is even easier than the Orberg Latin they are already reading without difficulty. This is because they have been well prepared by the meticulous and almost invisible gradations in Orberg’s work.
Roma Aeterna is the main text for part 2 of the Lingua Latina series. The text begins with a description of the city of Rome. Next, Orberg weaves together lightly edited and original text from Vergil, Livy, Aulus Gellius, Cornelius Nepos, Sallust, Cicero, and Horace, providing a seamless historical narrative about Rome. Intermediate-level Latin language learners will find this text integral in their study.
The beauty of Lingua Latina Pars II: Roma Aeterna is that Orberg takes works of Vergil, Ovid, et al and paraphrases them in graded Latin that helps the student transition to unadapted texts. The further one goes in the book the more the mix changes from adapted to unadapted. I consider it a brilliant book to transition from beginner to intermediate Latin.

Deepen your knowledge of the ancient Roman world with Indices for Roma Aeterna. This volume contains chronological lists of Roman consuls and their triumphs, a name index including short descriptions and explanations in Latin, and a vocabulary index covering all of the terms used in parts 1 and 2 of Lingua Latina.
This supplementary text, comprised entirely of Latin, covers books 1 and 4 of Vergil’s Aeneid, which many consider the national epic of Rome. This text is designed for all intermediate-level Latin language learners.
A supplement to part 2 of the Lingua Latina series, Ars Amatoria is a poem in three books by Ovid. The first two books consist of instructions to men on the wooing of women; the third, of instructions to women on the wooing of men; some believe that Augustus banished Ovid to Tomi by the Black Sea due to the immorality of this work. Ars Amatoria is full of humor and contains interesting glimpses of Roman life and manners—the circus, the theatre, and the banquet.
