About myself: I began learning Latin through the Nature Method more than four years ago. I was fortunate enough to receive instruction from some of the best natural method Latin teachers in the world (Vivarium novum Accademy) and have since gained substantial experience teaching in the method myself, offering my services to everyone from absolute beginners to Latin teachers.
About the Nature Method: If you’ve been taught Latin through the traditional method, using the usual grammar books and translation exercises, chances are that even after years of study you still find yourself slogging through Caesar’s commentaries or Virgil’s verses, encountering difficulties that impede both your understanding and enjoyment of the text. The Nature (or inductive) Method, which places a greater emphasis on speaking and listening just as though Latin were a living language, is intended to overcome difficulties caused by the strain of constant mental translation and, ultimately, to teach students how to read and even think like an ancient Roman. As I’ve seen not only in my own case but also in my colleagues’, it often succeeds.
