5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant way to learn, 19 Sep 2004
This review is from: Cambridge Latin Course, Book 1: Level 1 (Paperback)
In my quest to learn Latin, having been disappointed by other books, this was recommended to me by a friend. After reading the positive reviews on Amazon I decided to buy it.
I was not disappointed in it at all. This was exactly what i was looking for in a book:
It had stories to translate that focussed around one family so there was a familiar thread to them. Sometimes it even has (although in a very 'learning is fun' way) humour.
It had a gradual increase of vocabulary, giving any new words in a story down the side of it.
It had a full dictionary of all the words used in the book at the back of it, along with a section on all the grammar taught.
The grammar was introduced at the right rate and there were exersizes to test how well you had understood the new points. There were three-four exersizes every chapter (with 20 chapters in total), along with the translations.
The end of the book leads nicely on to the start of the next one so it is not difficult to continue.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to read Latin. You will not regret buying it!
