Have any of you ever taken Latin courses? I’ve taken a few… and because I really, really want to graduate and get my degree this year, I’m repeating Latin 203 in a condensed 3-week format. Those of you who have taken this course know how crazy this probably is… but to add to the craziness, the U of C is experimenting with using a different textbook. Usually they’ve taught with the classic Wheelock’s Latin text- which is the one I used for Latin 201 and 203 (the first time). However, now they’ve switched to Jones and Sidwell’s Reading Latin. What does this mean for me? It means I not only have to learn a whole new system for 203, but I need to do all the material covered in the intensive Latin 201 in order to make sure I’m all caught up. This… really… sucks.
This is the inside of my brain... Wheelock' s vs. Reading Latin.
I think it’s time for some Ice Cream Therapy… at least my quiz tomorrow is only worth 1.5%!
