Completed: NEW Recordings for Pattern Practice Exercises (Latin by the Natural Method)

I’m redoing something from the past that doesn’t exist today! I’m taking the incomplete tape scripts from Fr. Most’s Latin by the Natural Method, translating and completing each exercise, and recording them, making them an audio resource as they were meant to be. After reading each lesson of the textbook, students can then listen to the Pattern Practice Exercises here and respond orally, making the learning process with this curriculum even more “natural.”

(Small print alert/Caveat auditor:) I strongly roll my “r’s” in these recordings, as in Spanish or Italian, but it is also correct to pronounce Ecclesiastical Latin with the nasal French/German “r” pronunciation.

And, errare humanum est–please let me know what mistakes you come across so I can fix them as soon as possible. This is definitely a first draft of this project! I hope it can still be useful in spite of such mistakes.)

I hope this resource will be a great help to all of you. As the weeks go by, I will be adding more. There will eventually be 73.

      1. Yes! I’m almost done translating #14, and will be recording it later in the week (probably Friday!). A little bit of work each day, and I should be able to record a couple each weekend! Thank you for your comment, and your interest in Church Latin!

  1. Hi, These have been great for my class. This is our first year with LNM. We are a once a week co-op, so we plan to get through the first 28 lessons this year.

    I am wondering where is lesson 13. We will be on that one before Christmas Break.

    Also, have you seen the St. Andrew Christmas Novena translated into Latin? I looked, but didn’t find it. I think it would be great for the students as I think most of them are praying this novena this year. Our whole Schola Alta group made pull beads with 15 beads to keep track in their Catechism class.

    Thank you for all your resources. It’s been a huge help!!

    1. Ah, I really needed to hear that those have been helpful! I had to re-do L13 because it was FULL of silly mistakes (at 10 minutes long, there is a lot in there!). I’ve put it back up just now. Unfortunately my husband has not been able to edit it to get the road noise and mouse clicks out, I’m sorry!
