A companion to Bloomsbury's popular two-volume Greek to GCSE, this is the first course for Latin students that directly reflects the curriculum in a clear, concise and accessible way. Enhanced by colour artwork and text features, the books support the new OCR specification for Latin (first teaching 2016) as well as meeting the needs of later students, both at university and beyond. Written by two experienced school teachers, one also an examiner, the course is based on a keen understanding of what pupils find difficult, concentrating on the essentials and on the explanation of principles in both accidence and syntax: minor irregularities are postponed and subordinated so that the need for rote learning is reduced. User-friendly, it also gives pupils a firm foundation for further study. Part 1 covers the basics and is self-contained, with its own reference section. It outlines the main declensions, a range of active tenses and a vocabulary of 275 Latin words to be learned. Pupil confidence is built up by constant consolidation of the material covered. After the preliminaries, each chapter concentrates on stories with one source or subject: the Fall of Troy, the journeys of Aeneas, the founding of Rome and the early kings, providing an excellent introduction to Roman culture alongside the language study.

Although designed as a continuation of Latin to GCSE, it is self-contained and can be used independently. This new edition is brought in line with the new OCR specifications and benefits from a completely redesigned layout, with added colour and images. The answer key is available on a companion website. The first part of the book introduces new constructions and the translation of sentences from English to Latin, with reading passages at AS standard. The next sections provide translation and comprehension passages at AS and A-level, including verse unseens, scansion, and a list of 300 common poetic words. Next come longer unadapted extracts from a range of authors. Finally there is a reference section including a summary of all constructions, a comprehensive grammar, and a general vocabulary of about 1200 Latin words.

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. Updated to match the 2016 OCR specification, this edition has been restructured to reflect the new examinations, which now have a single language paper. Section 1 provides 30 passages, starting with very short and simple stories and building up to the level of the current OCR GCSE. Section 2 provides 30 differentiated passages of increasing difficulty on historical and miscellaneous topics. Section 3 provides 20 shorter passages of uniform length on mythological topics, with comprehension questions, in the style of Section A of the new GCSE language paper. Section 4 provides 20 passages on historical topics, with comprehension and unseen sections, in the style of Section B of the new GCSE language paper. The new edition is supported by a companion website with an answer key and additional passages.
