This review is from: Learn Latin: The Book of the Daily Telegraph QED Series (Paperback)
Despite originally having been published as a weekly news column and thereby limiting options for structure, this is probably the best beginner's book available to budding latin scholars to be. The book is marvellously simple in its approach and is laid out perfectly, interweaving short and fun lessons in grammar with brief and stimulating chapters on the history of the language, allowing students to comprehend the necessary grammar of the language before steeping themselves in its culture. The frequent exercises punctuating the lessons make this the perfect book for any novice students looking to study on their own.
The book is suitable as an introduction to 'Reading Latin' ( Jones & Sidwell ) or simply as a stand alone book for the curious linguist.
