A companion to Bloomsbury's popular two-volume Greek to GCSE, this is the first course for Latin students that directly reflects the curriculum in a clear, concise and accessible way. Enhanced by colour artwork and text features, the books support the new OCR specification for Latin (first teaching 2016) as well as meeting the needs of later students, both at university and beyond. Written by two experienced school teachers, one also an examiner, the course is based on a keen understanding of what pupils find difficult, concentrating on the essentials and on the explanation of principles in both accidence and syntax: minor irregularities are postponed and subordinated so that the need for rote learning is reduced. User-friendly, it also gives pupils a firm foundation for further study. Part 1 covers the basics and is self-contained, with its own reference section. It outlines the main declensions, a range of active tenses and a vocabulary of 275 Latin words to be learned. Pupil confidence is built up by constant consolidation of the material covered. After the preliminaries, each chapter concentrates on stories with one source or subject: the Fall of Troy, the journeys of Aeneas, the founding of Rome and the early kings, providing an excellent introduction to Roman culture alongside the language study.

The skill of writing Latin is both challenging and rewarding. While requiring the ability to manipulate grammar and vocabulary, it gives a heightened appreciation of how Latin authors used the language to express themselves in their own particular styles. This book helps students to write Latin using increasingly complex forms of expression. Part 1 gives guidance and practice exercises for the new sentences required at GCSE, while Parts 2 and 3 contain a series of chapters of grammatical introduction and exercises for translation into Latin leading up to A Level and Pre-U. Part 4 takes students into more advanced areas of composition. Continuous passages are included from an early stage alongside stand-alone sentences. Clear guidance is given about the characteristic features of Latin prose, such as word order and subordination, as well as more advanced grammatical complexities. At the back of the book, lists of vocabulary and accidence provide useful reference and revision tools for students of all levels.
