Principium is the official study aid for Wheelock’s Latin, 7th Edition. The app follows the text chapter by chapter, helping you to practice the grammatical forms for the model words, as well as all of the vocabulary. Macrons are optional, and macron entry is extremely simple: just enter a capital letter. Principium also has a handy glossary of the entire Wheelock’s vocabulary.

Ratings and Reviews

No complaints, only praise!


Could the app be better? Maybe. Are there issues? Possibly. Is it the best app for Latin? Definitely. I would be lost without this app.

A very helpful companion


This app is great for really teaching yourself all the little things about Latin vocabulary and grammar. It matches the book exactly (as far as I can tell) in terms of chapter grammar and vocabulary. The practice pages are great and you can turn off macrons or not depending on your dedication level. You can keep quizzing yourself over and over until you're happy with your level of mastery, and if you get stuck, answers are only one click away.

If you haven't yet memorized your declensions or conjugations this app will really help in that regard.

It would be nice if a future version of this app included the pronunciation audio files, and perhaps more of the supplemental content from the textbook.

I really like the way it automatically puts in stems once you've mastered them so you don't have to keep typing them and you can focus on the endings.

This is exactly the app I was looking for, the developers did a very good job, I highly recommend it.



This app is possibly the most impressive language learning program I think I've seen, especially as a companion tool for Wheelock's Latin. It is a great way to drill the vocabulary and paradigms. I would love to see them design a similar app for Classical Greek, maybe using Hansen and Quinn's intensive Greek course as outline. The only complaint I have doesn't regard the program itself, but I am not a huge fan of the nude classic artwork, and would love to see them change the background image for the "forms" page.
