  1. There seems to be, on the other hand, an entire flourishing subgenre of Wheelock’s Latin Studies: Workbook for Wheelock’s Latin, by Paul T. Comeau. 38 Latin Stories Designed to Accompany Weelock’s Latin, by Anne H. Groton. Vocabulary Cards and Grammatical Forms Summary for Wheelock’s Latin. Cumulative Chapter Vocabulary Lists for Wheelock’s Latin. Readings From Wheelock’s Latin Audio CD.

  2. What if there’s something wrong in Wheelock’s book and nobody realized it and a lot of people are doing it wrong and nobody knows it because it’s the only reference? Not cool.

  3. No worries: that problem is easily solved with our new title Errata to Wheelock’s Latin, with its companion volume Extension to the errata to Wheelock’s Latin.
