Synopsis

Latin Stories is an ideal first reader for students of Latin. It offers 100 self-contained passages of manageable length, chosen for their intrinsic interest and adapted from a wide range of ancient authors. Generous help is given, with a short introduction to each story and glossing of all proper names and non-GCSE vocabulary. The collection will also be attractive to older students beginning or returning to the language. Section 1 provides 30 passages, starting with very short and simple stories and building up to the level of the current OCR GCSE paper Language 1. Section 2 provides 30 passages at the level of the GCSE paper Language 2, with its more demanding grammar and vocabulary requirements. Section 3 provides 40 longer passages in the style of current GCSE papers, with comprehension questions as well as sections for translation: 20 for Language 1 (stories from mythology or Roman life) and 20 for Language 2 (stories from Greek and Roman history).
