Make learning Latin faster and easier with this essential companion to the esteemed classic introductory textbook, Wheelock’s Latin. Reflecting the trend toward more active use of classroom Latin, this supplemental workbook focuses on listening and speaking skills to help students new to the language master its basics.

Workbook for Wheelock's Latin offers forty lessons presented in an easy-to-read, clear layout. Each chapter begins with a detailed set of objectives (intellegenda) and continues with a series of questions designed to focus directly on newly introduced grammar (grammatica), as well as:

  • Transformation drills, word and phrase translations, and other exercises to test and sharpen skills;
  • Word Power sections that focus on vocabulary and derivatives;
  • Reading comprehension questions and sentences for translation practice;
  • Perforated pages for written homework assignments, including space for the student’s name, class, and date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Answer Key not available Customers in Canada should be aware that despite the blurb inside the front cover (which states that an Answer Key is available to... persons engaged in independent study), HarperCollins Canada will not send Answer Keys to individuals who wish to use this workbook to learn Latin on their own. I contacted the company 5 months ago to request an Answer Key, only to be told that HarperCollins would only provide Answer Keys to those who were affiliated with a university. When I read them what they had printed inside the cover of the workbook, they agreed to send an Answer Key, but they never did. Instead, they have only made constant excuses for their failure to deliver this Answer Key, promising me again and again that the book is on its way; clearly, it is not. Without an Answer Key, this workbook is useless to anyone wishing to pursue independent study. If this is your goal, do not purchase this book.

Editorial Reviews

"Generations of students have learned Latin successfully from Wheelock's venerable text. LaFleur preserves the best features of the original book, while adapting it to meet twenty-first century demands." (Professor Anne H. Groton, St. Olaf College)
