Step 1: Commit

To do this, you must commit part of each day to learn Latin. If you are a slow learner, commit 1-2 hours to this and ask someone to help you.
<p>The biggest problem with that is that it's well, not Classical Latin. Not to <br>say you won't benefit from studying it, either way it'll enhance your <br>knowledge, but most people would probably benefit studying strictly <br>Classical Latin sources if there aim is to say, read Caesar, Cicero, <br>etc... with that said there's several scans of a Bible in Classical <br>Latin on Google Books, just search for 'Biblia Sacra ex Sebastiani <br>Castellionis' and you'll find it. The scans are kinda rough though, I <br>intend to clean one of the better ones up soon, and maybe even have a go <br> at typesetting it and making a proper and readable PDF copy. Obviously <br>it's a fairly big task but hey, nothing worth doing is ever easy. Also <br>back to the topic at hand, Wheelocks is one of the most commonly used <br>textbooks but there's also one called 'Latin for Beginners' which has <br>entered the public domain and it's quite excellent. Generally like many <br>more modern texts it prepares you to read Caesar, and from Caesar you <br>can move on to more advanced texts.</p>
I'll add this in! Thank you very much!
Most language textbooks include some practice sentences. I always found it helpful to get a Bible in the new language and set it next to an English Bible. Go back and forth between the two until the sentences in the new language begin to make sense when you read them. This takes a while before you have learned enough of the basics and vocabulary to do this. In our time you can find a copy of the Latin Vulgate Bible on-line and make use of it without the cost of buying a copy. I like your emphasis on regular review and practice.
