The goal of this book is to enable the student to read ancient Greek without the use of a dictionary or translation, and to read as fluently as one could read in French or Spanish. For educational purposes, ancient Greek is treated as a living language in this text. Polis applies teaching methods commonly used for modern language acquisition to ancient Greek: total oral immersion, total physical response (TPR), gradual complexity of dialogs and stories, and gradual grammatical progression. Whether used by a self-taught individual or by an instructor with a group of students, this first level book submerges the student within the language. The audio files that are available to download from the Polis website will help the student internalize grammatical forms and vocabulary. As only Greek is heard by students, they are unable to rely on an intermediary language and are compelled to employ the new skills they have acquired through this text. Polis teaches Koine Greek, the dialect of Hellenistic literature from Alexander the Great till the end of Antiquity and in which most ancient Greek texts were written. The first edition of the Polis method has been published in French (Editions du Cerf, 2009), Italian (Edizioni San Paolo, 2010) and German (Helmut Buske, 2011). The English edition of Polis fully revises the first edition and expands its original twelve chapters to twenty. This volume is intended for self-taught readers. It comprises a handbook of grammar with the grammatical lexicon, declensions and conjugations studied in the first volume, the keys to all the exercises, a list of differences between Attic and Koine dialects, and all text translations.

Telling Tales in Latin teaches Latin through the magic of storytelling. Narrated by the chatty and imaginative Roman poet Ovid (who lived in the Rome of the first century B.C), this new course takes young learners on a journey through some of the tales from Ovid's Metamorphoses. Along the way, they pick up Latin words and grammar, explore the connections between Latin and English and discover how Ovid's stories still speak to us today. Each chapter introduces one of Ovid's much-loved stories, encouraging children to begin reading Latin immediately while exploring the literary and mythic context of the stories. At the end of each chapter there are suggested activities to help learners to think about what they have just read, and to understand how the stories connect to ideas and issues that are still relevant today, from relationships with others and philosophy, to science and caring for the planet. Soham De's illustrations bring Ovid's stories alive for a wide range of learners and make learning Latin a colourful journey of discovery. Telling Tales in Latin outlines how Latin is the basis for English grammar, unlocking the complexities of learning English (and other languages) along the way. It also contains the vocabulary and grammar needed for the OCR Entry Level Latin qualification, making this book the ideal first introduction to Latin.

This collection of ancillary Latin narrative passages is intended to supplement the Cambridge Latin Course, and can be used to provide extra practice in translation and/or comprehension, or to provide material for evaluation purposes on tests and examinations. The stories have served both purposes in the classes for which they have been composed over the last 20 years. The Cambridge Latin Course is successful in its avowed aim to prepare students to read and understand Latin, mainly because its stories are so interesting that students want to be able to read them. That success, however, poses a challenge to the teacher/evaluator. To measure a student's successing in achieving the Course's primary aim, the student has to be asked to translate or answer comprehension questions "at sight" on a connected passage of Latin. The Fabulae Ancillantes answer this need, providing passages that are in line with the Cambridge Latin Course, yet are new to the student.
