This is the new Latin course that you have long been waiting for! An introduction to both the Latin language and the cultural world of the Romans, it also develops English literacy skills through derivation tasks and two-way translation exercises, which promote the understanding of English as well as Latin. Cultural topics, supported by background notes, and primary sources, included for study and analysis, enable students to engage with authentic Roman history and acquire a broad understanding on which to build in future study. - Language learning is split between Core and Additional to ensure effective differentiation and flexible timetabling. - Fun and varied exercises include word identification, word manipulation, vocab acquisition / consolidation, and translation from English into Latin. - 30 words of new vocabulary in each chapter build towards a total of 360. - Vocabulary is consistently and constantly consolidated to give an unshakeable grounding for GCSE. - Clear and systematic explanations of grammar encourage steady progress. - Early use of Latin stories rather than isolated sentences build student confidence from the start. In this first volume students meet the gods and heroes of the Roman world, introduced through stories from Chapter 1 onwards, so that students can immediately read passages of Latin. From myths about the gods to stories about religious customs and festivals, this is the perfect way to learn about the religious framework of Roman daily life. The final chapter on prophecy, ending with stories of historical figures such as Caesar interpreting messages from the gods, prepares for the transition in the second volume to the world of men - and women - of ancient Rome.

Contains some interesting innovative features ... Many Latin teachers would welcome de Romanis as appropriate and useful for their students. * Classics for All *
This exciting new Latin course has first-rate integration of linguistic and paralinguistic material. The carefully graded stories are all the sorts of stories that the Romans did tell about themselves and to their children. * Melvin Cooley, Warwick School *
de Romanis seemed heaven-sent to help me! * Jo Lashley, Lead Latin tutor at Wolsey Hall, Oxford *
One of the many strengths of this course is that it can be adapted for learners of different interests and abilities. The stories and background material chosen for both books are relevant, appealing and a great knowledge base to understand the world of the Romans - women included - without resorting to sugar coating. * Ana Martin, Latin Tutor Online *
It is accessible and carefully structured to enable pupils to develop reading skills and a firm foundation in grammar ... It offers a return to teaching Latin through mythology; the stories in Chapter 1 immediately engaged and entertained our pupils. * Alexandra Boyt, Director of the JACT Latin Summer School 2009-2018 *
The de Romanis textbooks have breathed new life into Latin learning! * Emma Kate Trow-Poole, The King's School, Worcester *
Latin lessons with de Romanis feel like a hybrid of English and Maths. This straddles the ability and interest range of the class really nicely, but, more importantly, is preparing pupils far better for progress - and fluency - in reading Latin ... Time will tell how this plays out with uptake at GCSE etc., but what I am confident in is that every pupil will finish this year feeling positive about Latin and feeling like Latin is the subject they actually get. * Dom, Head of Classics at King Edward's School, Birmingham *
