Comments and Reviews
Latin for the New Millennium Student Text Level 3 is a college-level textbook for advanced students of the Latin language. Chapters deliberately offer Latin writings by a wide variety of ancient and renowned authors: Caesar, Cicero, Vergil, Horace, Ovid, and letters of Erasmus. Exercises, short answer questions, essay questions, vocabulary-building lists, study tips, advanced grammatical instructions and more enrich this solid reference and resource, further enhanced by a Latin-to-English glossary and an index. Color illustrations of classical artworks every few pages add an appealing visual touch to this sound-minded text that lends itself well to coursework or self-study. Highly recommended.
