Civis Romanus: A Reader for the First Two Years of Latin

Civis Romanus is a graded Latin reader for beginning Latin students. The memorable stories that grew from the civilization of ancient Rome are the basis of the Latin passages in this unique reader. New grammar is assumed in odd-numbered passages only and thus the teacher who wishes to proceed more quickly through the text may skip the even-numbered readings. In Civis Romanus students read about actual people and events while honing their Latin grammatical and syntactical skills and increasing their Latin vocabulary. Students who finish this reader in beginning Latin (Latin 1 and 2 at the high school level) will have acquired a minimum vocabulary of 1,000 words.
