5.0 out of 5 stars A change from Roman wars, 13 Jun 2014

A fun, well written, book, quite demanding for a beginner so would recommend the audio read by the awesome Stephen Fry.

Cambridge Latin Course Book 5 Student's Book

4.0 out of 5 stars Less * than books 1 - 4, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I rated books 1, 2, 3 and 4 as *****. Whilst appreciating this book needs to have more advanced learning, I found the content boring at times. Given how interesting the stories in book 4 had been, this was disappointing. Good preparation though for GCSE Latin language.

This review is from: Sherlock - Series 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
A 5* series that grips one's attention from start to finish. Shame there is to be such a long wait for series 4 but doubtless it will be worth it.


Gwynne's Latin: The Ultimate Introduction to Latin Including the Latin in Everyday English
Gwynne's Latin: The Ultimate Introduction to Latin Including the Latin in Everyday English
by N.M. Gwynne
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.74

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate, yes, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has been invaluable for GCSE Latin revision (independent learner). Mr Gwynne sums up in a few words critical concepts that are needed as a Latin beginner. A concise, well structured, small textbook with his interesting 'take' on the teaching of Latin; the history of this subject is also very interesting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor for beginners, 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I also was mislead by the 2 positive reviews. I've only just got round to using the book I bought some time ago and am so disappointed. The code layout is very hard to follow and I don't consider the content is suitable for beginners. As for the author's comment on page 40 of 'In any case, this made sense to me and I programmed and debugged it fairly fast', it is hard to believe she thought this appropriate encouragement for beginners.
