Students emerging from a year or two of elementary Latin grammar often feel overwhelmed by the real Latin authors that mark the transition to intermediate Latin. A popular, and excellent, 19th century reader, Fabulae Faciles was designed and perfected over many years to bridge this gap. I have used these stories for years for my own college-level Latin students as independent study materials over the summer which typically separates elementary and intermediate Latin.
In this class, I cover the first reader in the Fabulae Faciles, by providing audio files, guided study, supplementary materials, and, more important, a constant and consistent presence as you work you way through the passages.
