Lectiones Primae is part of the Artes Latinae series, which is a programmed, self-teaching Latin course structured to accommodate multiple levels of students, each learning at his or her own pace.
Developed by Dr. Waldo E. Sweet of the University of Michigan for Encyclopaedia Britannica, Artes Latinae is an easy-to-follow, two-level course that includes all the tools a student needs to achieve a firm command of Latin. The course was carefully crafted and refined to suit the needs and abilities of a broad spectrum of students. Students. Artes Latinae meets existing foreign language requirements for high school graduation.
An illustrated graded reader for first-year Latin students, Lectiones Primae offers two types of readings:
Sententiae: A collection of sayings, proverbs, and mottoes.
Fabellae: Connected and extended readings accompanied by illustrations that show each successive change of action. This visual assistance allows students to discover the meanings of new words and thus to comprehend the story.
