Jenny's Latin vs Wheelock's Latin

Reply Sun 28 May, 2017 06:51 am
Have any of you used "Jenny's Latin"? If so, what is your opinion? I found Jenny's on amazon, but can't "look inside".
You can "look inside" Wheelock's. I'm sure Wheelock's has all the information I would ever need, but it looks like rough going. From what i could see it is straight memorization, without sentences to translate and answers given.
Is Jenny's better in this regard? Is wheelock's as i have described?

George is the only one here who knows anything of Latin.

I have no idea though if he has knowledge of either of these books.

If he does, I'm sure he'll pop in and give an opinion.

If he doesn't, I would be surprised if anyone else here knows much about them.

True. I'm thinking it would be good to tag the topic Latin. I wouldn't be surprised if George scanned that forum from time to time.

I noticed the book is actually Jenney's Latin (note the spelling); you might get better results with Google with the corrected spelling.

I'm not up om Latin textbooks. It's been a long, long time since my school
days. I can't even remember what text we used.

One book I will recommend, though, is By Roman Hands: Inscriptions and
Graffiti for Students of Latin
. I uses actual Latin graffiti and inscriptions
as examples, It starts with simple phrases and works its way up to more
complicated ones.
