Latin was the language of the Ancient Romans, and despite the development of national tongues, it remained the language of scholarship and religion for many centuries since then. It is now the language of expressions in everyday use and some amusing and ingenious literature. These expressions and literature are the medium of the teaching process of this book; an approach different from what has traditionally been taught in schools, which relies largely on study of ancient writers. Martin Newman’s “Latin – the Eternal Language” not only teaches the reader the meaning of the expressions but why they mean it.

About the Author
Martin Newman is in his late eighties. After an education largely disrupted by the Second World War, he spent 40 years in the armed services of India, the U.K. and Australia. He then spent several years in the Australian Public Service, from which he retired and attended the Australian National University. For several years he taught Latin and Greek at the University of The Third Age in Canberra using the draft text of “Latin – the Eternal Language” as the basic text for his Latin lectures. The reaction of his students is one the factors encouraging him to publish it.
