Learn Latin..Disce Latine


We believe anyone can learn to read Latin well. But it’s not always easy to know what to read and how.

Here you will find resources, and techniques for successfully learning or improving your Latin.


Nobis persuasissimum est quemlibet posse discere scripta Latina bene legere. At non semper facile est iudicare quae potissimum sint legenda vel qua via ad hanc facultatem quam celerrime pervenias.

Hac in sede subsidia atque rationes proponimus quibus usi homines Latine discant vel nova addiscant. 



Si forte nos, in sublime tendentes ad montis verticem, deciens praecipites devolvamur, immo centies, milliens, totiens ardentius ac inflammatiore spiritu iter idem arripiemus, ad eundem verticem terrarum advolabimus.
— Ringelbergius, De ratione studii
