Liber Secundus, level 2, Britanni et Galli (The Britons and Gauls) includes the Britanni et Galli Reader, Workbook, Pronunciation Audio for the reader, Drill Book with Companion Audio and a detailed Teacher’s Manual of lesson plans, tests and answer keys.
The Britanni et Galli Reader (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) introduces the student to slightly more difficult Latin sentences and longer paragraphs in engaging illustrated stories about the inhabitants of ancient Britain and Gaul. Second declension masculine and neuter nouns are used in sentences with simple third person being verbs and intransitive verbs in the present tense. The genitive case of the first and second declension and the use of nouns of possession are introduced. The student will learn more prepositions and a rich variety of new vocabulary words.
The Britanni et Galli Workbook (8 1/2″ x 11″) activities direct the student to modify second declension masculine and neuter nouns with adjectives. He/she will also learn singular and plural endings for the nominative, genitive, accusative and ablative cases, achieve a solid understanding of various noun functions, study the three genders of nouns, and have many chances to identify these important sentence elements: subject, predicate nominative, predicate adjective, nouns of possession, prepositional phrases, adjective phrases, being verbs and transitive verbs.
The Britanni et Galli Drill Book (8 1/2″ x 11″) features lessons corresponding with the workbook lessons providing additional exercises and more in-depth explanations of the grammar concepts introduced in the workbook. Each lesson begins with the student copying in cursive all essential grammar definitions and rules. English cognates derived from the featured vocabulary words are given to help the student learn to recognize Latin roots in English words.
Short sentences with first declension nouns taken from the Latin Vulgate Bible, the Liber Usualis or the writings of the saints are presented as models for the student to copy and memorize if desired.
The accompanying Pronunciation Companion Audio for the reader and the Drill Book Companion Audio aid the student in memorizing the grammar rules and definitions and in learning the correct pronunciation of the Latin.
