Fluency in LatinWatch
There are books and courses available for beginners - Cambridge Latin Course, Orberg's Lingua Latina to name the two I know of - but the question becomes what materials to use after that.
By fluent, I'd say you should be able to pick up Cicero, Suetonius, Virgil, Ovid etc. and read them without needing much time or effort - and be able to accurately translate mostly any of the passages if asked (i.e. when reading you need to get more than the gist). That I would call fluency. Perhaps there should be a higher standard set (I don't know which authors are regarded as more difficult than the ones I suggested).
With this in mind, any suggestions for the path to fluency in Latin?
