Overview

New Steps in Latin is a three-book series designed for beginning level students. For maximum learning efficiency, the texts employ minimum explanation of grammatical principles and instead concentrate on the essential grammar, morphology, and syntax of simple, compound, and complex sentences. This offers students a complete graded introduction to Latin. Learning is done contextually through numerous examples of Latin texts. These volumes can be used alone as core texts or as supplements to cultural and reading-oriented courses.

Each book consists of 30 lessons intended for a year-long course in Latin. Taken together, the three books form a comprehensive introduction. Vocabulary in the series is based on Cicero, Vergil, Ovid, and Pliny. After completing New Steps in Latin, students will be ready to read these or other unaltered Latin authors.

In the Logos edition, this resource is enhanced by amazing functionality. Pull up the New Steps in Latin series for reference as you read the classics in the Classical Latin Bundle (7 vols. plus Perseus Latin Classics). Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Tablet and mobile apps let you learn on the go. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place so you get the most out of your study.
