Extensively field-tested and fine-tuned over many years, and designed specifically for a one-year course, J C McKeown's "Classical Latin: An Introductory Course" offers a thorough, fascinating, and playful grounding in Latin that combines the traditional grammatical method with the reading approach. In addition to grammar, paradigms, and readings, each chapter includes a variety of extraordinarily well-crafted exercises that reinforce the grammar and morphology while encouraging the joy of linguistic and cultural discovery.
