About Latinum

    Welcome to Latinum


     Audio Immersion Course and Classical Audiobook Library 

Latin study for modern life - Latinum will let you study away from your desk, whether sitting in your car or riding on public transport. Our materials are also a good accompaniment to long walks, cycle rides, or weightlifting sessions. Latinum's audio materials are designed so you can use them without a book open in front of you.

SPECIALISED BILINGUAL AUDIOBOOKS
Latinum offers a range of Latin Courses and supplementary audiobooks recorded in Latin-English-Latin, read phrase by phrase. This method is an enjoyable way to expand your vocabulary and basic language skills.

MONOLINGUAL AUDIOBOOKS
 Latinum offers specialised Latin-only audio books at a variety of ability levels. The audiobook catalogue is continually being expanded.

STREAMING CATALOGUE: Streaming  including Adler, Aesop's Fables, Bennett, Latin Bible, Busching, Caesar, Holy Mass, Catullus, Chickering, Coleridge, Collar, Comenius, Corderius, D'Ooge, Erasmus, Eutropius, Fay, Fenton, L'Homond, Maxey, Nepos, Nutting, Pexenfelder, Reed, Reynolds, Sonnenschein, Stanford and Scott ,Virgil, and more


DOWNLOAD CATALOGUE:Streaming + Download  including Adler's complete Latin Audio Course (191 hours), Book of Psalms, Caesar Reading Book, Caesar Grammar Course, Taylor's Caesar, Coleridge, Comenius Vestibulum, Comenius Orbis Pictus, Der Kleine Lateiner, Eutropius, Nepos, D'Ooge Latin Course, D'Ooge Colloquia, L'Homond Historiae Sacrae, Materia Medica, Maxey's Cornelia, Maxey's New Latin Primer, Pexenfelder, Psalms, Puer Romanus, Sanford and Scott, Dictionary in Audio, Underwood's Latin Course, and more.

 There is no need for you to spend any money on textbooks. The course is self contained.


All the Latin audio here is carefully read in restored classical pronunciation. Molendinarius' pronunciation of Latin has been extensively peer reviewed, and conforms to the academic gold standard - W S Allen's 'Vox Latina', Sturtevant, and the Cambridge Philological Society guidelines. Greek pronunciation used on the course follows a form of reconstructed Koine, approximating the way Greek may have sounded during era of the late Roman Republic.

LATINUM'S CHATROOMS
Latinum hosts very active Latin-only chatrooms on Whatsapp, two for Latin, and one for Greek. 
  You can find out more about the chatrooms, and find links to join here


Works in Progress
The Latinum Institute has a number of works in Progress. These and other updates are periodically listed here on the update page or appear in the feed.
For more information, please read the FAQ


Mastery

Latinum offers you the tools to master Latin and Greek. To this end, textbooks that were written for teaching Latin as a ‘workhorse’ language are used – including parts of Comenius‘ famous 17th century course, Adler‘s Practical Grammar, Kontopoulos' Greek Course, and extensive supplementary materials.

You can follow the curriculum broadly outlined here – but feel free to use the materials in any order. For Latin, you are encouraged to begin working with Adler and Comenius.





Structure

The Adler Audio Course is structured in the following way:
Each of the 97 lessons is in 3 parts: ( except for the first four lessons, which follow a slightly different arrangement)
  • Grammar and syntax with extensive paradigms added to the text. The grammar is very detailed, with large numbers of additional paradigms and useful memory clues. Vocabulary is presented in advance of every lesson.
  • Model question-answer conversations in Latin-English-Latin. Here you consolidate your vocabulary, and learn the grammatical structures in use.
  • Slow repetition and fast repetition of the conversational material in Latin only, for review.

Supplements to Adler

In addition to the Adler Online Audio Course, a suite of supplementary study materials specifically for Adler's course have been created:
  • Adler's Textbook is available for free on Google Books here.
  • The Dictata (Exercises) are free on Google Books is here
  • The Dictata (Exercises) transcription by Carolus Raeticus is here
  • ANKI flashcards for Adler by Carolus Raeticus are here
  • Clozemaster Games by Adam Bushashia for learning the vocabulary for Adler in the context of sentences of the exercises are here
