I have not been active or read this forum for quite some time (probably early-mid 2008), however I have not stopped with learning Latin . I originally intended to use D'Ooge but decided I was not too keen on it so I bought a copy of the first Cambridge Latin course book. I managed to work through most of it on my own during the first half of my A2 levels but due to other commitments progress was slow. Since being at University I have actually enrolled on a Latin course using the book 'Introduction to Latin' by Susan C. Shelmerdine that is designed to be year long but we manage to fit it in less time between holidays at a rate of two chapters a week (40 new words a week). I am currently half way though this text book at chapter 18 (there are 32 chapters). I am finding it very enjoyable, though very difficult as everyone who does Latin knows. I was wondering, does anyone else know of, has seen, or used this textbook? I would be very interested to know if this is the case and what you have heard of it or think of it.
