Via Plana: Graduated Readings in Advanced Latin
"Via Plana" is not just another random collection of unseen exercises, presented to the student in the optimistic hope that somehow, they will muddle through and absorb some of the finer points of Latin grammar along the way. With a new approach, "Via Plana" systematically presents the major features of advanced Latin grammar and then offers sixth-formers and undergraduates a 'smooth road' to fluency via a structured series of exercises, primarily translation-passages extracted from major Latin authors, focussing specifically on each grammar feature in turn and graduated in difficulty to match the students' increasing level of ability.
