Adapted to better meet the needs of students, The Oxford Latin Course, College Edition, retains its trademark reading-based approach, but does so now in two companion volumes -Readings and Vocabulary and Grammar, Exercises, Context- - that cover all of the topics essential to a first-yearLatin course.
Maurice Balme is the former Head of Classics at Harrow. He is the coauthor of Athenaze, the #1 book in the US for first-year courses in Greek, and the author of many other books. James Morwood has been a Lecturer of Classics at Wadham College, Oxford, since 1996. Before that, he taught Classics for 30 years at Harrow.
