Overview

Through Learn Latin's twenty clear, high-spirited, and anxiety free chapters, you can master enough grammar and vocabulary to confidently read poems of Catullus or the Latin Bible in just twenty weeks. If your goal is simply to pick up a bit more of the genius of Latin embedded in our culture, no problem. These pages will allow you to immerse yourself in the richest of all linguistic pools.

Originally written as a series of articles in London's Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, the lessons were enormously and instantly popular, not only because they work, but because Peter Jones added lively features on Roman history and Roman personalities--allowing readers to get inside the heads that first formed the words. In addition to the exercises (and answers!), Learn Latin includes a grammatical summary, a vocabulary listing and eighteen--or rather xviii--charming illustrations.
