Select course readings offer a few quotations read aloud by the author.

Course texts (i.e. all the Latin quotations) appear both with and without macrons. The absence of macrons makes it easier to search/find passages.

Poetic metres introduces the different metres which appear in the course, with particular attention to hexameters (the verse form for all of Virgil, much of Ovid, and a good many others).

Additional vocabulary includes most of the words which appear in the course, arranged by declension, conjugation and so on. Teachers may find this useful for extra examples, for activities and exercises, or for learning drills.

Grammar tables which have cases listed have two different layouts. In the USA, nouns decline as follows: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, ablative, with the vocative added at the end if different from the nominative. In the UK the declension pattern is nominative, vocative, accusative, genitive, dative and ablative.

Additional exercises may be useful for further practice or testing. Answers are included.

The Glossary of grammatical words explains the technical words which come with learning Latin.
