I'd like more language exercises than offered here, especially more of the cartoon ones. They're a delight. Latin may be dead, but this book has something to offer all language lovers.
well.. The book is black and white, full of sentenses extracted from various authors, the grammar is explained to its basic level and when finally you ve been able to make any sense of what the book is pointing or explaining.. you end up with 3 or 4 sentenses that you have either to translate or even better, just fill in the gap.
for a textbook of that price, that s simply a bit of a joke. Unless you ve got a teacher and that textbook is specifically required for your class, I would not even bother buying it as a self study beginner manual.
I gave 3 stars because , not only it is an excellent sleeping aid.. (ever so boring it does put you to sleep easily... trust me )
but also it does give you a basic knowledge.. you know at the end that nouns in -a do their plural in -ae and that words like oppidum are neutral.. you ll be able to use a present tense active voice after having read, and snorred through all the pages..
Don t expect to learn anything at all with that textbook, BUT it is a must buy if you re insomniac...
