Start your review of First Year Latin Write a review Sep 14, rogue rated it it was amazing I loved this book as a kid. It is laid out very well has great little distractions: info-boxes, quotes, "If You Lived in Ancient Rome Where else in a First Year Latin book will you be exposed to details such as the internal accusative?
The rationale explained much later on is that Latin nouns are very specific whereas verbs are general with many meanings; thus verbs usually come last in a clause because you need the rest of the words to figure out which meaning of the verb to use. I reread this book as an adult and it lived up to all my charming childhood memories of Latin class. The only major flaw I can think of is that the end-of-chapter readings when they try to paraphrase Livy into "easier Latin" end up introducing some confusing and unclear constructions.
I taught High School Latin for the first time this semester and found the text very approachable for myself and my students. As a Latin student, I am glad I learned with the more poetic, whole-language approach of Wheelock, but not everyone fuses the art and science of foreign language acquisition in the same way I do. Jenney parses Latin into the bite sized chunks needed for rote mastery without dumbing it down. That is a marvelous feat.
