Welcome to the Cambridge Latin Course!
With a 50 year history of development and revision, the Cambridge Latin Course (CLC) has established itself as the leading beginner's course for Latin.
Aims of the CLC: to teach comprehension of the Latin language for reading purposes; to develop an understanding of the history and culture of Roman civilisation; to encourage a wide range of approaches to language learning through the use of high quality audio-visual resources.
Visit the website for more informational and additional resources. FREE eBooks of all 5 CLC books are currently available plus all the usual online support activities
A companion to Bloomsbury's popular two-volume Greek to GCSE, Henry Cullen and John Taylor's Latin to GCSE 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.
FREE access to the Open University's Discovering Ancient Greek and Latin course is now available through its Open Access site. Discovering Ancient Greek and Latin gives a taste of what it is like to learn two ancient languages. It is for those who have encountered the classical world through translations of Greek and Latin texts and wish to know more about the languages in which these works were composed.
Content includes: Beginning Latin; Latin noun endings; Latin verb endings; Simple sentences and Reading Latin
