WHEELOCK'S LATIN: AUDIO FILES

When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; at least one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, five decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate.

Workbook for Wheelock's Latin is an essential companion to the classic introductory textbook. Designed to supplement the course of study in Wheelock's Latin, 6th Edition, Revised, each of the forty chapters in this newly updated edition features:
  • Transformation drills, word and phrase translations, and other exercises to test and sharpen the student's skills

  • "Word Power" sections that focus on vocabulary and derivatives

  • Reading comprehension questions and sentences for translation practice

  • Perforated pages for hand-in homework assignments and space for the student's name and date

Customer Reviews of Workbook For Wheelock's Latin, 3rd Edition, Revised

Reviews

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)
