Follow a Latin story set in a medieval monastery, where conspiracy unfolds in the cloisters, Vikings threaten to attack and young lovers set out to unmask the villains. Sample some classical Italian too, and learn more about the authors who wrote it. This text is intended for beginners and introduces the language step by step through an interesting and humorous story. Each unit contains grammatical explanations and vocabulary support. There are plenty of exercises to practice each point as it is introduced to help you remember what you have learnt. There are two revision units so that you can check your progress and review areas of difficulty. "About Latin" sections offer information about the history of the language and its influence upon English. "Living Latin" sections contain pieces of authentic Latin, most of which is classical. They are included to give you an idea of what there is to enjoy once you have mastered the language and the translations are given. Two accompanying CDs are included with the book. The recording contains the story and the "Living Latin" sections of the book, to enhance enjoyment of the poetry and offer an idea of what Latin sounded like.
