'I found the course very clear and straightforward - the layout is uncluttered and explanations of grammatical points are clearly expressed. The inclusion of English to Latin exercises is a good thing: I see this as giving flexibility to the course...The course is certainly well suited to C.E. in terms of vocabulary and the presentation of the grammar. The exercises are such as to give confidence to the less able students.' "Jonathan Welch, Head of Classics, Kingshott School" 'I think the new book is excellent...a most valuable and entertaining book.'
"John Smith, The Harrodian School" "'Learning should be both stimulating and enjoyable, '" says Mike Seigel. Following his Classics studies at New College, Oxford, Mike was Head of Classics at Colet Court from 1976-87. After teaching at St Paul's School for twelve years, he moved to the Headship of Rokeby Prep School in 1999. This first volume of Mike Seigel's new three-volume course aims to present grammar in the clearest possible way. The language content is supported by detailed insights into the history and culture of Ancient Rome, with stimulating full-colour pictures to help bring the Roman Empire to life.
