Oxford Latin Course Student's Book by Maurice Balme, James Morwood

This second edition of the Oxford Latin Course combines the best features of both modern and traditional methods of Latin teaching from first stages to GCSE. Completely revised and restructured in the light of a nationwide survey of Classics teachers, it provides an exciting, stimulating approach to Latin based on the reading of original texts. Parts I-III are built around a narrative detailing the life of Horace, based closely on historical sources, which helps students to develop an understanding of the times of Cicero and Augustus.


Looks interesting....I like the inclusion of pictures. --Margaret Ann Smith, Salisbury High School The entire series is excellent--while obviously aimed at junior high students, it is emminently suitable in classes in high school where many students have low reading levels in English--yet challenging enough for those who are gifted. --Gayle H. Cloud, Central High School, Little Rock, Arkansas Has lots of possibilities for oral and written practice. --Robert Haglage, Woodward High A very useful accessory--attractive and lively. It should save the teacher time and effort. --Gillian Vardon, Nichols School Excellent....I would recommend it. --Etan Savir, The John Cooper School
