After the alphabet has been learned, we will now start the process of connecting the letters on each side of the chart to the vowel, that is, located in the center of the page.

In order to accomplish this task, we will need a ruler. The ruler will allow the learner to draw a straight line from the letters to the vowel. What we are attempting to do, is to make intersecting lines. An example of how the lines should look is shown in the back of your workbook, with practice and patience you will learn to make uniform lines.


As the learner draws each line he/she will try to make (say) the sounds of the letters that are joined together.

Make a line as in example from "A" to "A". The sound of "A" to "A" is long, regardless of how you make the sound. The rule is that when the same vowel is attached, one to the other, the sound is long. Draw your line with ruler from "b" to "A". The sound is most often the Latin sound. The sounds will be similar until vowel is attached to vowel. If you are having problems with a sound and no-one seems to be able to help, look in the dictionary for a word that starts with the two letters that you are trying to say.

After completing the left wing, we will begin on the right wing. The learner is now going to make the sound of A-A, A-B, A-C, etc.

The learner will practice saying the vowels in both English and Latin. An example of how to pronounce the vowels in Latin is shown on page 5.
