In our Latin class with Dr. Haykin we are using John Collins’ A Primer of Ecclesiastical Latin. Personally, I haven’t been to fond of the layout of the book. Pedagogically I find it difficult to use, especially when trying to memorize paradigms. So in my preperation for Latin II this Fall I created my own set of study helps for Units 1-17 in his book. I hope you may find this helpful if you are learning Latin. I included both a completed PDF and a blank PDF to help with studying. Throughout this semester I will continue to add paradigms and other study aids and will update the PDF as I go along and hopefully at the end of the semester it will be a useful quick reference and study tool for those learning Latin. If you have any suggestions or corrections please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below.
Here are the contents of the PDF:
- All 5 noun declensions
- All forms of sum (to be)
- All indicative verb charts for each of the 4 conjugations (the 3rd conjugation has 2 separate charts)
- Relative pronoun paradigm
- Auxillary verb possum paradigm
- List of prepositions and other small words that are often times difficult to memorize.
I also have vocabulary flashcards in Quizlet, which integrates with mobile devices for studying on the go. These are a work in progress but can be accessed here.
