Vocabulary trouble…

I received this question:

Do you have any recommended ways of memorizing the Lingua Latina Vocab. I’ve been doing the flashcards on Quizlet and that helps a little bit. But I still struggle with the vocabulary a lot.

Here is my reply: 

Good morning!

This is a common theme.  If there were one trick I could recommend, it would be this one.  Read and re-read the chapters every day.  Eventually, the story itself will embed the vocabulary in your brain.  This is why Jesus taught theology through stories.  The stories made the lesson stick.  

In Lingua Latina, the stories make the vocabulary stick.

This works well with Lingua Latina.  It does not work well with books like Henle Latin.
