Reviews for Oxford Latin Course Part 1

Looks interesting....I like the inclusion of pictures. --Margaret Ann Smith, Salisbury High School The entire series is excellent--while obviously aimed at junior high students, it is emminently suitable in classes in high school where many students have low reading levels in English--yet challenging enough for those who are gifted. --Gayle H. Cloud, Central High School, Little Rock, Arkansas Has lots of possibilities for oral and written practice. --Robert Haglage, Woodward High A very useful accessory--attractive and lively. It should save the teacher time and effort. --Gillian Vardon, Nichols School Excellent....I would recommend it. --Etan Savir, The John Cooper School
