As you begin your study of Latin, remember that it did not merely consist of written texts to be silently read (in fact, the Romans themselves nearly always read aloud!), but it was for centuries a spoken language--a language learned and spoken not only by famous orators, poets, and politicians, but by Roman boys and girls, in fact, just as your own native language was acquired and spoken by you in your childhood. You should apply all four language learning skills in your study every day, listening and speaking as well as reading and writing; always pronounce paradigms and vocabulary items aloud, and most especially read aloud every Latin sentence or passage you encounter; and always read for comprehension, before attempting a translation into English.

Tam bene quam potestis semper linguam Latīnam prōnūntiāte, discipulī et discipulae!

"Always, students, speak/PRONOUNCE Latin as well as you can!"
