“The textbook everyone who ever learnt Latin should have had, and the one that everyone who wants to learn Latin now and in the future should have. It is a model of lucidity that combines rigour with accessibility and wit.” The Daily Telegraph

“This is not a book for the squeamish or the faint-hearted. Mr Oulton takes you firmly by the hand and guides you through REAL GRAMMAR. Conjugations and declensions, well chosen vocabulary, and lots of exercises… But he does it with a supreme intelligence and a passion for his students.” Amazon review
