LATIN COURSE FOR TEENAGERS – PART III (SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER 2016) TUTOR: Dr, JOHN WHELPTON
The textbook for this course, Cambridge Latin Course, is by far the most popular in the UK and is used by over 90% of schools teaching Latin. Before Lesson 6, students will be expected to purchase a copy of Book 2 either directly themselves or via the course tutor. If ordering yourself, make sure you select the UK Fourth edition, as the North American edition has some differences. The book is currently (30 September) available at HK$171.48 at http://www.bookdepository.com/Cambridge-Latin-Course-2-Student-s-Book--Bk--II/9780521644686
You will be supplied with Powerpoints illustrating each Cambridge stage during the course. Please note that these are copyright materials and should not be passed on to anybody else. You will be welcome to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions at any time.
