When the sounds are spoken together, the consonants have unclear tone; in other words, most words that you hear spoken will only convey the vowel sounds. Examples of the difference in the sounds of the letters as they are attached to other letters are given. There are six letters at the top of each chart listed as vowels. One entire week should be spent practicing each of these letters.

Begin on Monday with the vowel "A" in the center of the chart. Each day the learner will complete one chart and practice the sounds. Friday will be the last day for the "A" chart. The following monday we will begin on the "E" chart. Place the model chart under a blank sheet of typing paper, this will help to facilitate a more exact and uniform copy. Remember we will spend five (5) days on each chart.

After Completing the left wing of the chart, the student should begin on the right wing. The learner should now begin to make the sound A-A, A-B, A-C, etc. The learner should practice saying the vowels in both English and Latin. An example of how to pronounce the vowels in Latin and English is shown on page five (5) of this workbook.

The Rule of X

When a word begins with the letter "x" or the letter "x" is followed by a vowel, the "x" is pronounced "z" (zee). When a vowel is followed by the letter "x", the "x" is pronounced "x" (ex).
