Basics of Latin Video Lectures
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
- Providing only the information needed to learn the basics
- Breaking the grammar of language down into manageable and intuitive chunks
- Drawing from Scripture, ancient Christian authors, and the Reformers
Basics of Latin Video Lectures provides an ideal first step into this important language and focuses on getting the student into texts and translation as quickly as possible.
