LEARN WITH STORIES: EXCLUSIVE LEGENTIBUS-ORIGINALS
Our illustrated Beginner Stories are written in simple language with a unique vocabulary count of 100 to 200 words with additional features:
They are all grounded in history or literature– in classical myths, fables, medieval stories, or historical events, e.g.:
· The Knight and the Magician (medieval)
· Phrixus and Helle (classical)
· Orpheus and Eurydice (classical)
· The Strange Death of Milo (classical)
· A Dangerous Journey (classical)
· The Statue and the Treasure (medieval)
That way, you will learn more than the language itself. We go to great lengths to ensure that the vocabulary and syntax is attested in Roman literature.
We believe that stories are key to learning Latin efficiently while simultaneously having a good time – which in turn enhances your learning.

WHY IS LEGENTIBUS DIFFERENT?
For a long time, people learned Latin by memorizing declension and conjugation tables, lists of words, and analyzing and translating complex sentences without much context. But Latin is a language, not a puzzle.
It is essential to experience Latin as a language: a medium for communicating something, be it philosophy, history, or a simple story. The only way to achieve true reading fluency in Latin is to listen and read as much Latin as possible from the start.
We made this app to help Latin learners achieve their goals, no matter how varied they might be.
You can do all the listening, reading, and understanding you need in one place, in Legentibus.
Using Legentibus is easy: create an account and choose a subscription plan.
Each subscription includes a 3-day trial to try out the app with full access. You can cancel the subscription anytime during the trial.
Group subscription options and special prices for schools are available on request.
A limited collection of books is always available for free.

Ratings and Reviews
I don’t think there is a better resource for learning Latin in the App Store or off of it. Lots of material for the beginner to the advanced student alike. I really like how you can follow along with the narrator while reading books. Very handy to have all the material in this app on your phone so you can access it anywhere at anytime. I use it daily on my breaks at work which allows extra time to study. I listen to it while I drive also. Excellent for allowing you to immerse yourself in the language. It has quickly become indispensable in my Latin studies. If you’re interested in learning Latin, don’t pass this app up. It is a must have.
Keep up the good work and job well done!
Okay, it’s brilliant!
I thought I would dabble in a wee bit of Latin to satisfy my inner nerd. Was perusing the store, downloaded a few apps and books and courses. And then I got to this one - I am blown away.
The stories, which teach Latin using history, myth etc are fantastic. I’m just starting out but I really love the approach. It has definitely made the prospect of learning Latin enjoyable.
It’s also interesting to fill out one’s vocabulary to look up the root words and find related English words, either to the Latin, or going further back to PIE and seeing the connection between words. (Pax, pacify, pacific, lead me to Magellan and the Pacific Ocean).
I cannot say enough good about this app. I’m a beginner a few months in, but improving and mostly because of this app! The stories are fun and engaging and the reading level is perfect - challenging but not in a “wring out your brain” kind of way. Daniel Petersson’s voice is amazing and he reads the stories in a way you can understand the meaning of new words through how he emotes. It’s brilliant and fun and I wish every language had an app like this one!
