Flavius's family is picked up 5 years later, after the daughter is married. They are transferred to York, and the move is detailed. The difficulty of the Latin accelerates noticeably.
I found the use of the Minimus series added a break in formal instruction that was eagerly anticipated in every day's lesson. The comic-strip illustrations and the continuing story holds interest high.
I very much appreciate the approach of using forms that have not yet been explicitly introduced, and then explaining grammar concepts one at a time after their use in the stories. It is a natural learning approach that works well for my students.
The photos of real artefacts that my students have themselves seen in the museums adds great immediacy, and the fact that the Roman life is set in Britain, with a British family slave, also makes the material much more relevant.
It may "tick the boxes" for a school that needs to churn every Fred, Margaret and Bob through something which qualifies as a foreign language, but, as a homeschooler, I get to choose for my child to be taught from the best materials. This book is far from that, in our experience.
Conjures up images of someone trying to put together a book on "Calculus for Primary School" and drawing pictures of a mouse running all over graph paper with some numbers and sums and a smattering of Greek letters (pi, theta, rho), then claiming kids were being "introduced" to calculus, and so would find it easier later on. This sort of 'dumbing down' can really confuse a kid about what the subject really entails.
