Praise for Clarke's Latin

Quite frankly a revelation... a bumper-pack of resources that will never, ever run out. I mean seriously. Imagine it. No more resource-writing. Just a series of course books containing everything you need. More than you need. I’m still slightly in shock!

Emma Williams,

These substantial volumes will be warmly welcomed by prep school teachers... Thorough in their treatment – as one would expect from the author of Variatio – the workbook format and sheer profusion of exercises of all kinds will ensure our pupils lay down the solid foundations so vital at this early stage in their classical careers.
Bob Bass,
 formerly ISEB’s chief setter for CE and CAS Latin
