Description

Basics of Latin: A Grammar with Readings and Exercises from the Christian Tradition by Derek Cooper introduces students, independent learners, and homeschoolers to the basics of Latin grammar with all readings and exercises taken from texts in the Christian tradition.

  • Minimizing technical jargon
  • Providing only the information needed to learn the basics
  • Breaking the grammar of language down into manageable and intuitive chunks
  • Illustrating the grammar in question by its use in rich selections from ancient Christian authors.
  • Providing grammar, readings, exercises, and a lexicon all in one convenient volume.
