Item Description...
Earn-lay atin-Lay? No, not that kind of Latin You can learn true Latin, with conjugations, declensions, and all those extra syllables - and it's easier than you think. In fact, most people mistakenly think of learning Latin as perhaps the most useless, tedious, and difficult thing to do on earth. They couldn't be more wrong.

"Latin For Dummies" takes you back for a quick jaunt through the parlance of ancient Rome, as well as discussing the progress of Latin into church language, and its status today as the "dead" language that lives on in English, Spanish, Italian, and most other Western tongues. Written for those with zero prior knowledge of Latin, this snappy guide puts the basics at your fingertips and steers clear of the arcane, schoolmarm stereotype of endless declensions and Herculean translations. Easy-to-understand sections describe: Latin you already knowGrammarPronunciationLatin in actionLatin in lawLatin in medicineLatin for impressing your friendsAnd much more

No dusty tome or other such artifact, "Latin For Dummies" makes learning fun and brings the language to life by presenting conversations in various Roman settings, as well as providing fun facts and stories about classical life. And if you feel you may actually have a negative aptitude for the language, don't worry; pronunciations and translations follow every expression, and a helpful mini-dictionary graces the book's last pages. You'll also find out about: The quotable RomanLatin graffitiLatin authors who's whoGladiator LatinLatin in love, marriage, and familyFrom the mouth of Julius CaesarRomans on drinkHelpful Latin-related Web sitesFun and games exercises

Designed to introduce and familiarize you with the language rather than make you the next Cicero, "Latin For Dummies" gives you all the tools you need to work at your own pace to learn as much or as little as you like. So noli timere (no-lee tih-may-reh) - "have no fear" - and carpe diem ("pick up "Latin For Dummies" today")

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Look elsewhere to learn Latin  Dec 8, 2007
The For Dummies series has been riding on its laurels a bit too long. Back in the days of MS-DOS and Windows 3.1, the Dummies series was innovative and really good. I guess the marketers decided to branch out and attempt to apply the same model to hundreds of other fields. The Dummies schtick is nothing but a comedy overlay to an existing academic model that is confusing to start with.

Latin For Dummies fails because they take the same ponderous academic teaching model and spin it with silly and trite text. They don't even try to get away from the grammarian's non-intuitive inside language of dative, declension, genitive, infinitive, conjugation, etc. Words that also must be mastered in order to slog through the same tired obfuscated academic approach to Latin that made our grandparents hate Latin when they were kids.

The For Dummies series fails in the same way with Calculus but, that's for another review!
Warning: not a coursebook  Aug 26, 2007
This is not the book you are going to learn latin from. If you are in for that kind of material you had better try Teach Yourself Beginner's Latin Audiopackage if you are a beginner who would also like to listen to a good approximation of the classical pronunciation, or Latin Via Ovid: A First Course Second Edition, if you are beginner but more ambitious, let's say your purpose is to read Harry Potter in Latin (Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Latin Edition).

But back to this book, which is a kind of collage of the Latin language: it lists the different areas of life where you can actually meet Latin words and expressions, helps you with cultural background, Latin jokes and short dialogues and yes, gives some elements of the language. To sum it up, a delicious side dish for learners of Latin or a cheese-board for those who are simply interested in classical education after a good meal.
Another Great Dummy book  Mar 8, 2007
I need to learn both Spanish and French. Within a year I need to know just enough to get by. I felt that the task was a little high. A friend that speaks 9 languages made a suggest. Learn Latin first because it is the root of Spanish, French and English.
I have gone through the entire Latin course and I am now on to Spanish. Gee, am I glad I did the Latin first. My friend was right. I had tried to learn Spanish before and I was lost. By learning some Latin learning Spanish is now much easier.
I did the Rosetta Stone and read this book on the side. The two together make a great combination.
Really does help.  Jan 11, 2007
I have been struggling with Latin, and when I purchased this book alot of the terms began to make sense. This is good to be used as a reference with other texts. I used it with Wheelock to some success
Good Start  Jan 9, 2007
Having carefully looked through many of the various simplified (Dummies style) books on Latin, I chose this one. It's a good introduction and entertaining. It won't teach you Latin, but you'll get a flavor of the subject. If you want to go farther, Wheelock's is a good choice in my opinion.
