Grammar explained in Latin – Present tense endings

desinencias de presente
Hello again, dear latin student!

One of the most frequent questions from my student is how we do to remember efficiently Latin or Greek endings. Well, one of the many benefits of spoken latin is precisely this: by using verbal endings in their right, specific context, our brain tends to generate a much more closer connection between the form (-a, -as, -at, etc.) and its meaing (in this case: first, second or third person). This is of huge worth, especially prior to the study of these endigs, as it generates a much closer connection which our brain generates in a natural way.

After all, this way of learning is more natural in itself: Latin, just like any other language, was used trough a historical period as a system of communication and, as such, it works just as well as any other one in practice. Thus, it can be learnt under the same principles as any other modern language, that is to say, through careful and gradual immersion in the language. This video is just one example of how I do it at Viva Voce, but if you don´t want to leave it there, and you´d rather experience by yourself what immersion can do for you in your study of Latin, why not try it for yourself? We are having a group trial lesson to start our Latin 1 Level 1 soon, why don´t you just register in our next FREE TRIAL LESSON?
