Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disapointing I would really love if they sold this it in stores. I understand it says that the book is available in stores, however nowhere near me do they offer it and it disappoints me as I am trying to teach myself simple Latin words and phrases and my only media sources are YouTube and google translate which are not the most reliable.
