Dr. Zaslavskys An Introductory Latin Course presents the characteristics of the Latin language in a holistic way, rather than in the fragmented way that is typical in other Latin textbooks. This allows learners to gain a comprehensive conceptual grasp of the linguistic characteristics that are to be learned. In addition, since there has been a neglect of the teaching of English grammar in our schools for over a third of a century, our students have been left grammar poor. Therefore, this textbook provides a comprehensive explanation of both English and Latin grammar. This makes it as useful for understanding English as it is for learning Latin. In summary, this textbook provides: (1) a clear explanation of the kind of language that Latin is (as opposed to the kind of language that English is); (2) detailed, step-by-step instructions for the construction of all Latin forms; (3) a clear and workable guide for translating from Latin into English based on rational and consistent principles of translation; (4) straightforward explanations (without superfluous refinements) of Latin grammar and syntax; (5) a full explanation of the English grammar that students need; (6) copious paradigms and a plethora of useful supplementary materials. Finally, it is rigorously non-sexist in its language use.
