Title : Advanced Latin : Latin 10861733 : an advanced practical online tutorial

Description :
Produced by The National Archives, this interactive tutorial provides twelve step-by-step lessons in Advanced Latin vocabulary and grammar. An easy to use and free resource, it follows on from The National Archives' Beginner's Latin course and therefore assumes that the user has basic familiarity with the language. As the ability to read Latin at this level is essential for anyone wishing to use documents produced in England between 1066 and 1733, this tutorial is suitable not just for academics and students, but also for those interested in family or local history. Each lesson focuses on one or more aspect of Latin grammar, which is clearly and concisely explained. Users requiring more help can open extra windows for full explanations of terms or to access a word list or grammar table. At the end of each lesson, the user can try an interactive test and also attempt to translate some practice sentences. These sentences are taken from documents at The National Archives and provide not only attractive images for the website but also allow the user to develop confidence in translating historical manuscripts.
