The First Latin Course
By

Rating
Dr. Zaslavsky's The First Latin Course is informed by a double recognition: First, the recognition that the characteristics of a language must be presented in a holistic, rather than in a fragmented, way. Such an approach allows students to gain a comprehensive conceptual grasp of the characteristics of the language to be learned. Second, the recognition that there has been a neglect-even an outright abjuration-of the teaching of English grammar that has prevailed in our schools for at least a third of a century, which means that our students come to us grammar poor. This textbook aims to enrich students grammatically by providing a comprehensive explanation of both English and Latin grammar. This makes it as useful to English teachers as a reference source as it is to Latin teachers. The following are the features that distinguish this Latin textbook from the others that are currently available: (1) It provides a clear explanation of the kind of language that Latin is (as opposed to English). (2) It provides a clear and workable guide to translating from Latin into English. (3) It provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for the construction of all Latin forms. (4) It provides straightforward explanations (without superfluous refinements) of Latin grammar and syntax. (5) It provides a full explanation of the English grammar that students need. (6) It provides and employs rational and consistent principles of translation. (7) It provides copious paradigms and a plethora of useful supplementary materials. (8) It is, out of a commitment to linguistic precision, rigorously non-sexist in its language use.
