I think the best way to do Latin is to get a bunch of people together who want to work through an intro book, set a schedule and have weekly meetings. But you'd need to get a lot of people to do it.
Speaking also of Latin, I wonder that there aren't more sight-reading groups. I used to run sight-reading groups—basic to intermediate—in both Washington, DC and Boston. It took a lot of effort to get them together. Surely you could find people online easily.
Nlytle--just ran across the The Great Courses class and looking closely at it.
Latin was compulsory in the secondary school I attended for four terms in 1st and 2nd Form (Years 7 and 8 in new money). The school I moved to taught compulsory French. I don't really remember much more than 'amo, amas, amat ...' from the Latin, but going from a phonetic language to a language full of elisons(?) and similar nonsense gave me an abiding attitude problem to French.
Amazon has a ton of things by Orberg, including a nice CD, where you can listen to the language being spoken. It's also nice to have friends who can converse intelligently, but those are becoming more rare as years pass, sadly.
>1 MarysGirl: Going back to nathanielcampbell's suggestion, you might want to call around and see if there's a course at a nearby school that fits your schedule where the instructor would be willing to let you audit it.
This specific entry is on LT, as:
Forgotten Books is (apparently) rescuing various works by authors that are long vanished. I have no idea of the copyright status on these, but there are a great many books on the site, so I suspect that they've researched this. I mention it because there is a very large collection of Latin books on the site (which is difficult to search properly), and most of them seem to be visible as suggestions at the bottom of Mr Sanford's page.
