Description

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.

Who is the target audience?
  • Self-Learners
  • Homeschoolers and their pupils
  • Students in traditional classrooms who want to improve their study skills
  • Teachers of Latin looking for suggestions for conducting recitation classes

Retired Classics Professor

Dr. Lugosch taught all areas of classical studies at the undergraduate and graduate level, and published scholarly articles on Sophocles, Plato, Aristotle, and Homer. Recently retired, Dr. Lugosch still leads small private tours to Italy, Greece, Turkey and France that explore artifacts of classical antiquity.

These lectures help support his money-losing hobby farm in Kentucky where he raises organic pigs, grass fed beef, pastured chickens, Californian rabbits, and all manner of vegetables.
