Learning Latin does not have to be an uphill battle. Sometimes having the same information explained to you in a different way makes all the difference between understanding or giving up.
If you need a little extra Latin homework help or want to begin learning Latin here are a few online resources you might find helpful.
Complete Study Guides to Wheelock’s Latin
It is almost possible to learn Latin, or at least a good deal, using just the online study guides made available on this site. The study guides are made to accompany the Wheelock’s Latin text, one of the most widely used Latin textbooks. Each study guide provides a thorough review and additional explanations and information for each topic.
If you are teaching yourself Latin or taking a class this guide has its uses. I was 500 miles away from a student I was tutoring in Latin without my own text when I discovered this great online resource. Even though I did not have Wheelock in front of me I was able to use this guide to provide help and guidance to a student.
A Course in Practical Latin
The lessons in this online guide are quick, painless doses of Latin that everyone can use to pick up some basics in Latin. Once you get through the entire set you sill not be able to have a go at Ovid, but you will be capable of translating short phrases and recognize a lot of Latin names, abbreviations, and nomenclature. With a little free time and consistent practice you can learn even more with very little else besides the lessons.
I like that the author has connected the lessons to Latin we find in our everyday lives, such as songs that artists still sing today.
Latin Dictionary and Grammar Aid
This dictionary is the perfect resource when you find yourself stumped by a word or need some grammar help. The dictionary is the most extensive Latin Dictionary online with over fifteen thousand words, but that still leaves plenty of words off the list. Still, even if the dictionary does not give you a complete definition of a word it will provide you with the meaning of the stem.
As a separate database is a wordlist of six thousand archaic medieval Latin words and their meanings. This is a great tool for students studying medieval history or translating period texts.
Complete Latin Texts and Their Translations
This resource is great for the serious Latin student looking for more texts to translate. Latin texts in their entirety are on the site along with a complete translation that can be opened up in a separate window in case you need help.
