I was surprised to see that nobody had mentioned Lingva Latina by Hans H Ørberg since it is usually one of the first things Latinist recommend beginners to read.
It starts of with simple sentences like “Ubi est Hispania? Hispania est in Europa.” and builds up into more complex topics like family. It’s definitely a good way to start and you do not need a translator (it is all Latin) unless you truly do not understand a word. It’s a good base before reading Cicero or Caesar’s works which may still be too complicated for some people to read (like myself). I found my copy on Academia.edu which is an online archive where you can find research and commentaries and even manuscripts for free (though for more content and features there is a subscription). https://www.academia.edu/21452941
Additionally I have found two exceptionally great Youtubers that teach Latin better than anyone I have seen: Latintutorial who gives in depth discussions about Latin grammar and rules along with analysis of stories like the Aeneid and Scorpio Martianus who is similar but his content is COMPLETELY in Latin and Ancient Greek, probably the only channel of his kind. Both their channels are linked below and these gentlemen definitely deserve some congratulations for their great work. Their content is perfect for not just beginners, but even experienced Latinists who want to experience some more literature or learn to write in more unique styles.
