HANS ORBERG LINGUA LATINA PDF

Ask a sixth-former studying Latin to read a random page of Caesar or Ovid, and after only a line or two they will come grinding to a halt and have to reach for the dictionary. Why is the fluency of students of Latin so abysmal when compared with that of students of modern languages? Latin teachers are fertile with excuses, but an outside observer would conclude that the inferior results are simply down to inferior teaching methods. Modern Language MFL teaching is fast paced, with teachers insisting that the language must be spoken as much as possible during class.

Ask a sixth-former studying Latin to read a random page of Caesar or Ovid, and after only a line or two they will come grinding to a halt and have to reach for the dictionary. Why is the fluency of students of Latin so abysmal when compared with that of students of modern languages?

Latin teachers are fertile with excuses, but an outside observer would conclude that the inferior results are simply down to inferior teaching methods.

Modern Language MFL teaching is fast paced, with teachers insisting that the language must be spoken as much as possible during class. Students of Latin on the other hand, encouraged to think of Latin as a sort of intellectual word puzzle which they have all the time in the world to translate, simply never read it fast enough to become fluent.

In revolt against the killing slowness of traditional Latin teaching many teachers have thought to apply the direct methods used in MFL. Hans Henning Orberg — Feb 17 th was educated at the University of Copenhagen, and qualified as a teacher of English, French and Latin in Orberg records that from the beginning he practised the direct method of teaching in his English and French lessons, but with Latin he found this impossible.

I felt that Latin is a foreign language like other foreign languages and should be taught by similar methods. I was inspired by the work of English direct-method pioneers like W.

Rouse and R. Jensen, who had launched an English reading course called English by the Nature Method. Orberg published his first book, Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicata in Because LL is written entirely in Latin it may be used anywhere. However, in Britain Orberg and LL are practically unknown. There are 35 chapters and pages in Familia Romana, all in Latin.

To achieve this O. Such inductive reasoning and learning per exempla is the most effective way to assimilate both vocabulary and grammar. There are 35 stories in LL. The teacher starts by reading the story aloud, with correct stress and pronunciation of the Latin, while the students follow in their books. The text runs two-thirds across the page; the remaining third holds notes on any new words or grammar. These take the form of pictures, or simple explanations in Latin.

From their phrasing and pronunciation of the Latin the teacher can usually tell whether they have understood or not. Pensum A is a grammatical exercise, where the missing endings are to be filled in. In Pensum B students are asked to fill the blanks with new words introduced in the chapter. Pensum C consists of questions to be answered with short Latin sentences. The students are allowed to keep their books open during these exercises and to find the answers in the text. Before starting he is happy for the teacher to discuss the chapter in English.

And if at the end of the story students are still puzzled by a Latin word even after the Latin explanations, a one or two word English equivalent is acceptable. Grammatical explanations can be in English. Finally, an extract from one of the stories to give a flavour of Lingua Latina. Often they are informed with a certain sly humour. Omnes pulchritudinem tuam laudant.
