Reading Latin is a Latin course designed to help mature beginners read Latin fluently and intelligently, primarily in the context of classical culture, but with some mediaeval Latin too. It does this in three ways; it encourages reading of continuous texts from the start; it offers generous help with translation at every stage; and it integrates the learning of Classical Latin with an appreciation of the influence of the Latin language upon English and European culture from Antiquity to the present. The text, richly illustrated, consists at the start of carefully graded adaptations from original Classical Latin texts. The adaptations are gradually phased out until unadultered prose and verse can be read. The Grammar, Vocabulary and Exercises volume supplies all the help needed to do this, together with a range of reinforcing exercises for each section, including English into Latin for those who want it. At the end of each section, a selection of Latin epigrams, mottoes, quotations, everyday Latin, word-derivations, examples of mediaeval Latin and discussions of the influence of Latin upon English illustrate the language's impact on Western culture. Reading Latin is principally designed for university and adult beginners, and also for sixth-formers (eleventh and twelth graders in the USA). It is also ideal for those people who may have learned Latin many years ago, and wish to renew their acquaintance with the language. Its companion course, Reading Greek is one of the most widely used mature beginners' courses in the world.… (més)

A really good text for mature beginners or amateurs of Latin. Needs to be read in conjunction with the other two books in the series for full effect. Be warned though, while this isn't a "grammar first" book like the horrid 'Wheelock's Latin', it should perhaps be supplemented by a real beginners cause like Cambridge, that starts off a bit simpler and introduces grammar more naturally. Still, you can't beat this if you're studying alone, and particularly if you're interested in translation. ( )

This is a good group of Latin text books, with interesting translation tasks and sensible vocab. ( )

I didn't get on well with this set of books. I found the use of multiple books unweildy, and the use of the letter "u" for both vowel and consonent confusing (e.g. seruus instead of servus). ( )

I much prefer reading from this text than from Wheelock's—having lengthier (albeit abridged and adapted) texts to work from is much more conducive to how I learn. There was perhaps a little too much Plautus for my tastes—I simply don't find Roman 'humour' that amusing—but all the texts were ideal for reinforcing the grammar points made in the accompanying text. Recommended. ( )
