Description

The acclaimed Oxford Latin Course has been completely revised and restructured in the light of a national survey of Classics teachers. The course is in three parts, each with an accompanying Teacher's Book. Parts I-III are built around a narrative detailing the life of Horace, based closely on historical sources which develops an understanding of the times of Cicero and Augustus.

Review quote

"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
