This review is from: Latin for Beginners (Language for Beginners) (Paperback)
For a beginner this is a useful way of picking up some "colloquial" Latin. Proof reading is a bit suspect as it gives a link on page 3 to learning Irish for beginners!Substitute Latin for Irish and you are back on track!It is produced in comic strip style with grammar and vocab boxes with exercises and answers in the back of the book. You get on line access to a full Latin dictionary and it covers numbers dates time colours months seasons greetings etc. Quite a pleasant way of introducing what is often perceived as a stuffy and obscure language. For the price it is very good value but be warned - the comic strip format may be considered a bit dumbed down by some people - Personally, at the age of 70, I found it quite entertaining.
