This extensively revised book is ideal for Latin beginners, introducing pupils to regular verbs and sum in the present, imperfect and perfect tenses, nouns of the first two declensions, adjectives of the 1st/2nd declension, prepositions and numerals. All the grammar, vocabulary and syntax on the Level 1 syllabus is covered and passages for translation are geared towards the Greek Mythology and City of Rome topics for the non-linguistic studies element of the ISEB syllabus.
Written specifically for prep schools, this book includes solid grammar explanations, intentionally challenging content and twice as many practice exercises compared to the previous series, ensuring pupils have understood the material covered
