Designed to bring students to the point where they can read Latin fluently,

DISCE!  combines the best of both the reading first method and grammar first approaches.

An original, unified story provides controlled introduction to vocabulary and grammar in context while also utilizing orderly and clear grammar explanations in every chapter. It is carefully constructed to combine the grammar first approach and the reading-based approach. The guiding principle throughout is what is best at any given moment for the student and for the particular concepts being learned.  Additionally, Disce! weaves culture throughout the text and stresses the role of Classical culture in the modern world by the many links drawn between Latin and modern languages and between Roman practices and modern culture.  

DISCE! is intended for use in introductory Latin programs and is suitable for both high school and college students.
