Flashcards, Guide & More
Repetitio est mater memoriae (repetition is the mother of memory)! These vocabulary cards allow students an easy way to memorize Latin vocabulary words as they appear in each chapter of Wheelock’s Latin, one of the most popular first-year Latin books of all time. Students can practice Latin to English or English to Latin, and use the cards to help them memorize the full lexical forms of the Latin vocabulary words. These cards make vocabulary review a snap! A convenient cross-index of cards helps students locate the number of a particular card; a summary of grammatical forms from Wheelock’s Latin allows students faster and easier access to these references while studying.
Praise for the Flashcards
Latin teachers have been waiting a long time for this invaluable accompaniment to Wheelock. At long last students will have no excuses for not memorizing their vocabulary. —Professor Ward Briggs, Carolina Distinguished Professor of Classics, Louise Fry Scudder Professor of Humanities, University of South Carolina
I use Wheelock with my high school students, and those kids who have bought the cards love them. They find the cards much like cell phones and laptop computers--time saving life-simplifying technology! [complete review]—Daniel DiCenso, Latin teacher, Seneca High School, Tabernacle, New Jersey
I recommend Wheelock Vocabulary Cards to any student who is beginning to learn Latin via the Wheelock textbook.

Mark Robert Miner (readings and performances)
A 4-CD audio package, with recitation (in Restored Classical Pronunciation) of all vocabulary and paradigms for the 40 chapters of Wheelock’s Latin, as well as dramatic readings of Sententiae Antiquae and narrative passages in the 40 chapters, and lively performances of brief representative selections from the Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati. Wheelock’s Latin is America’s best-selling introductory college-level Latin text, with sales for the Series package (basal text, Workbook, and Reader) totalling over 50,000 copies per year; production of the proposed audio CD package is timed to coincide with release of the new 6th Edition, Revised, of the text, which, with its new hardback edition, online audio for vocabulary, and online teacher’s guide, will likely experience further growth in sales, including an expanded secondary-school market.
This is the only audio recording available of exercises and passages from Wheelock’s Latin.

Designed to Accompany Wheelock's Latin
by Anne H. Groton and James M. May
Though intended as a supplement to the one-volume Latin course by F. M. Wheelock, this book is well suited for use in any introductory Latin course. All the stories in the book are based on actual Latin literature, with the stories simplified at first and made gradually more complex as the work progresses. Students will learn how classical Latin was really written as they become familiar with the works of the great Latin authors.
Praise for 38 Latin Stories:
I would enthusiastically recommend the book to all those who teach elementary Latin via Wheelock and wish to provide their students from the start with continuous passages of interesting and idiomatically sound Latin prose.—Richard A. LaFleur, University of Georgia, in The Classical Outlook
