Get Started in Latin is the course to follow if you are taking your first steps in Latin, whether classical or medieval. Follow a Latin story set in a medieval monastery, where conspiracy unfolds in the cloisters, Vikings threaten to attack, and young lovers set out to unmask the villains. And discover the principal authors of classical Latin and read quotations from their writings.

To enjoy the language to its full potential listen to readings of the texts on the accompanying MP3 CD-ROM (ISBN 9781444174762).

The ideal course to learn Latin if you're a beginner, this new edition includes:
An introduction to classical Latin authors - ancient writers like Cicero, Tacitus and Virgil
A medieval story: a Latin 'whodunnit' - practising each new point of language
Grammatical explanations and vocabulary support in each unit
Lots of exercises - to practise each new point of language
Discover how Latin evolved through the centuries - and its immense impact on English
Listen to the story and the classical authors on audio - to experience the sound of Latin


"The best part of the book is its lively narrative...As carefully graded passages [the story sections] are much more useful than another collection I have used. The practice sections are excellent."
Dr Conrad O'Briain, Trinity College Dublin

Review:

The best part of the book is its lively narrative. The students become quite involved with the characters. As carefully graded passages [the story sections] are much more useful than another collection I have used. The practice sections are excellent. (Dr Conrad O’Briain, Trinity College Dublin)
