After being out of circulation for many years, I am proud to present this course in a new updated format so that all desiring to do so may learn Latin with the Vulgate Bible as a base structure.
Upon gracious permission granted by the owner of the rights to the course material, I have been allowed to convert the original 8 cassette tapes containing the lectures for each lesson into mp3 format and to also reprint the workbooks for wide and easy distribution.
This one-of-a-kind course will teach you Latin using the Latin Vulgate Bible (Clementine Edition) as a base text for all vocabulary, grammar lessons, and translation practice. The self-study format is excellent for home schoolers aged 8+.
It is also perfectly suitable for adults who desire to learn the language as well.

Also provided are fresh reviews from several volunteers who graciously donated their time and efforts. You can read them by clicking here and here.
Beautifully illustrated workbooks present vocabulary drills, matching and translations, English derivatives, crossword puzzles, and other fun activities useful in mastering the material as well as gaining insights in to the life and Resurrection of Christ (Level I) and Genesis (Level 2).

Audio lessons include the worshipful music of Bach in the background as the voice of the personable instructor, Scott Bayer, PhD. (who has taught Latin for years), guides you through the material.
Since the audio was taken from cassette tapes and the original recording was not done in a studio, the sound quality is not on par with a fresh digital recording. There is a bit of hiss and back ground noise evident in the recordings but despite this, the voice of the instructor is completely clear and audible throughout the course.
Level 1 provides a minimal introduction into grammar but stresses vocabulary-building a great deal. Level 2 offers a more thorough study of grammar, while still offering a wide range of new vocabulary words.
At the end of each workbook you will find answer keys to all exercises and a glossary.
Lectures are provided as individual MP3 files for each lesson but available for purchase as an entire album for each lesson. For your listening convenience, after purchasing the files can also be transferred to a flash drive or other portable playback device.
Pronunciation is presented in the Classical form and the English translations of biblical texts are taken from the King James Version of the Bible.
This course is offered in as individual components. Each work book and set of audio lessons is available separately.
