Education and Conjugation,
This review is from: Learn Latin: The Book of the Daily Telegraph QED Series (Paperback)
I bought this as a present for my husband and this is his review: An excellent introduction to this very ancient language. The mixture of culture and the linguistic makes for an interesting first text-book, which encourages the student to see what comes next. At 79 years of age this was, and is, my first venture into the latin. To say I am fascinated would be something of an understatement. I am enjoying it immensely, although I am by no means a natural linguist and simplicity in explanation is a must for me. This book 'does what it says on the tin' and I am well satisfied. The only thing I would have liked is a little more explanation as to how one identifies which verbs fall into which category of conjugation; bearing in mind the need for accurate verb endings.
