"Generations of students have learned Latin successfully from Wheelock's venerable text. LaFleur preserves the best features of the original book, while adapting it to meet twenty-first century demands." -- Professor Anne H. Groton, St. Olaf College"This new edition makes a world of difference."-- Professor Robert A. Kaster, Princeton University"The sentences for translation have been tremendously improved... expansion of grammatical explanations and advice about how to study Latin [appear in] almost all the chapters."-- Professor Cecil Wooten, UNC Chapel Hill, in the Classical Journal"LaFleur has done a great service for the study of Latin: this revised edition ensures the survival of a textbook that has remained on the academic bestseller lists for more than forty years.
