Having said that, it's less than 2/3s of a GCSE and sets its own limits, so if you're serious about the language from an academic point of view then it's a great confidence-boosting introduction but is no replacement for a more serious course (such as Jones/Sidwell Reading Latin).
I have no background in Latin but need to learn it for my PhD and am starting a 'proper' course in October, but this was recommnded as a fun starter to get ahead of the game and I'm loving it.
Starting with grammar rather than set phrases means that you progress incredibly fast without it seeming like a battle.
Peter Jones for Secretary-General of the United Nations, President of the World Bank, Governor-General of the bank of England and the next John Steed!
The book is suitable as an introduction to 'Reading Latin' ( Jones & Sidwell ) or simply as a stand alone book for the curious linguist.
This book negates the poem
Latin is a dead language As dead as it can be First it killed the Romans And now it's killing me All are dead who wrote it All are dead who spoke it All die who learn it Blessed death - they earn it --Unknown
