Elementa Prima free pdf Excerpt from Elementa Prima: The First Elements of Latin The underlying purpose in the preparation of this book is suggested by the lines of Horace from which the quotation on the title-page and the title itself have been taken: - Ridentem dicere verum quid vetat? ut pueris olim dant crustula blandidoctores, elementa velint ut discere prima. What is there to prevent the teaching of Latin in an alluring manner so that the young student may be not only willing, but eager, to put forth the effort required in learning the first principles of the language? At best the study of a foreign language is difficult for the beginner and the benefits to be derived from it seem remote- and for these reasons, if for no other, it is the part of wisdom to encourage the learner and to ameliorate the difficulties in his way by employing a method of instruction that is both rational and attractive. It should be recognized from the very beginning that language is a medium for the expression of thought and not an arbitrary contrivance to illustrate grammar. Hence the immediate object of the study should not be to acquire information about the language, but to become acquainted with the language itself- and it should be self-evident that the portions of the language assigned for study should express comprehensible ideas. Each sentence should convey a meaning intelligible to the student and the successive sentences should have a logical sequence. In this book the material for study is based on the reading matter, all of which has meaning connected from sentence to sentence- and this applies to the numbered sentences in the reading exercises as well as to the matter arranged in paragraphs. In order to attract the student's attention and to sustain it while he is working out the grammatical details, some suitable incentive must be offered, which should not be too obscure- and the acquisition of grammatical knowledge as such is not sufficient for this purpose. The more difficult the principle to be learned, the more inviting should be the manner of its presentation.
