The Imperium Latin Course was written for the twenty-first century; unique, highly resourced and written to make fullest use of modern technology. It was designed for use in class with students but also for self-learners working at home. It uses humour throughout to lighten the load of learning grammar and syntax in what is essentially a very traditional methodology. A wide range of support materials is available on the imperiumlatin.com website, which should help all newcomers to the course.
All texts are all kept short and to the point, to facilitate a swift passage. The stories follow the life of the Emperor Hadrian from his early childhood to his later years, as he became the most powerful man in the Roman world. The historical content is accurate and honest throughout.
This book includes the full texts of Imperium Books 1, 2 and 3, representing excellent value for money and ease of portability. A glossary should provide extra assistance, as should the many links which ensure simple navigation. Users can download and print pdf files of all the exercises from our website, so they can keep a handwritten copy of their translations as they go if they wish and the book will also allow for note-taking in electronic form.
