The Latin Course

Imperium Press’ Latin Course is designed around two of the greatest Latin grammars in the history of the English language: Collar and Daniell’s First Year Latin and Kennedy’s Revised Latin Primer. This course takes the student from absolute beginner to reading Caesar, building a solid grammatical foundation that will allow him to continue to enjoy unadapted Latin no matter how complex.

The curriculum is as follows:


  • Collar and Daniell’s First Year Latin

A key Latin textbook of the 19th century, First Year Latin gives the student a strong grammatical foundation, with carefully graded lessons aimed at letting him read Caesar unadapted. This revised edition of Collar and Daniell also includes expanded exercises and additional reading material not included in the original edition.
