looking at latin

Postby little flower » Sun Feb 07, 2010 10:37 pm

hi all
I am wondering. Is anybody using 'Looking at latin' at the moment. It is titled ' A grammar for pre college' by anna andresian.
Publisher is Bolchazy-Carducci. It would be useful if i could compare answers with someone as answers arent given (only representative examples.) I find the book good for introducing topics and for helping to bridge the gap between english and latin grammar though at $40 a year it is quite expensive.
thanks.

I had not previously heard of this book, but looking at the Google Preview of it, it seems like it would be very useful for those new to the language (plus a good review for others). I particularly like the abundance of pictures and the visually pleasing layout, both of which are rarities in Latin studies.

Priusquam mihi istum librum ostendisti, nihil in aures meas accidit. Prospectu apud GoogleLibros lecto, instrumentum discendi bonum eis nuper in latinitatem incasis, necnon quibus recensendum est, mihi esse videtur. Ut punctim dicam, multae effigies picturaeque iucundae, quae tam rare in libris latinitatem discendo repertae, mihi valde placent.

I and many others, I am sure, would be happy to evaluate and discuss your answers to the questions here. Who needs an answer key when you have Textkit?
