Latin was--and is--a beautiful language, the progenitor of the "romance languages." Lingua Angelica taps into that beauty as students practice their Latin translation skills by translating 24 beautiful Latin hymns and four prayers, including Gaudeamus Igitur, Stabat Mater, Tantum Ergo, Panis Angelicus, and Ave Maria. Integrating hundreds of new words and functioning as an excellent introductory translation text, Lingua Angelicais perfect for supplementing any Latin course. Exercises include the words to translate in vocabulary drills, as well as room to parse. The back of the book includes grammar charts.
