This volume adopted a radically new, systematic approach to the teaching of advanced Latin grammar through the medium of unseen translation. It provides a graduated learning environment suitable for for those approaching points of grammar for the first time and for those revising the same points at a later stage. Each chapter presents in detail a grammatical feature and then reinforces understanding of it through translation exercises set at five graduated levels. This offers university undergraduates stsyematic and repeated revision of grammar, each time linked to a new and progressively more difficult challenge, providing a "smooth road" to fluency in the reading of Latin texts.
