Resource Page: Latin, Stage ONE

Here are the essential courses ​that you will need to reach an intermediate stage of Latin. The first textbook, Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata, is simply the best textbook I've ever used in teaching and learning a foreign language. It is, quite simply, a work of pedagogical genius. Latin is lucky to have it!

Familia Romana

Do you study Latin? Do you have eyes? OK, if you answered 'yes' to both questions, then you need this book.



Join Quintus (yes, I know they're all called Quintus) and friends in this wonderful series that takes you from ancient Rome to Egypt and ancient Britain. A must have for Latinists everywhere. 

Oxford Latin

A noticeably more difficult version of Cambridge Latin with, in my opinion, far too much literature. Still, essential reading for an extensive reading programme in Latin. 

About Me

My name is Neil and I have been teaching English professionally for almost 20 years, the last ten of which at my language school. 

Apart from a diploma in teaching English as a foreign language (Cert Tesol), I have a BA in modern and Classical Chinese. I also speak Spanish, Italian, and French, and read Latin. 

Besides continuing my daily studies of these languages, I have also set myself a language goal of one new language a year. I’m looking forward to starting Japanese or German on the 1st January 2021.
