'The text is clear, well-paced, and beautiful in its presentation.'

'You have done a great service to Latin instruction at the high school level with the publication of Latin for the New Millennium. I'm virtually on the edge of my seat waiting for the Level 2 text. I never thought at my age and experience (62 years old and 41 years teaching) I would have the chance to try out a new Latin text, let alone a great one. It used to be that students only started reading Latin authors in the original after at least a year and a half of study. With LNM, they start on day one. From the illustrations, to the exercises, to the approach, I love this book.'
- M. Burton Hopkins Jr., Salem High School, Salem, New Jersey
'I appreciate the exercises and the readings especially and the books contains much of what I as a veteran teacher tell my students. I will retire very soon and this text and its support materials will allow a younger . . . teacher to provide students with an in-depth Latin education.'

'[Latin for the New Millennium] is the best secondary textbook that I have ever used. Having used everything from Jenney to Ecce to Latin for Americans to Cambridge, I really appreciate using Latin for the New Millennium for a few reasons. First, it is clear in terms of terminology. Grammatical terms, sometimes troublesome for students new to Latin, are explained thoroughly and used copiously. Additionally, authentic Latin is referenced from the earliest stages of Latin. Students meet authors and have a good overview of the changes in Rome, in literature, politics, and society. Finally, I think it is the best preparation for the AP while still attending to conversation and oral Latin. Not only am I confident that I can finish the 1st year text in a year, but I am also confident that my students will have a better understanding of the Romans as well as their language and our own. Having the built-in support in the online resource center is also valuable and something that I would like to see us use and develop as we mature in the series. From a teaching standpoint, it is so helpful to have not only the resource center but also all of the ancillaries. With Latin for the New Millennium there is no need for teachers to re-invent the wheel each and every year. Support (Pedagogical, technological, and ancillary) is built into the series and into to system as a whole to allow teachers to use, borrow, and adapt what they need in terms of worksheets, explanations, vocabulary lists, and study guides.
My Latin I students feel that they have an advantage not only in the classroom but also in their extracurricular competitions because of this text and even reference points (especially about Cicero and Caesar so far) from the Latin text in their History and English classrooms.' --Sherry Jankowski, The Meadows School - Las Vegas, Nevada
'Latin for the New Millennium organizing principle is the story of the Latin language itself, from the second century B.C.E. through the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and modern world...This sequential approach to contextualizing the language makes it much easier for students to see the importance and endurance of the Latin language and to make connections between the ancient and modern world.
Latin for the New Millennium utilizes a 'fusion' approach to language acquisition. By combining techniques from the traditional grammar-translation method with the contemporary reading approach, this course aims to teach students how to read fluently with grammatical accuracy and syntactical awareness...'
--Sharon Kazmierski, Clearing House, Classical Outlook
The book was worn out. There was writing all over it, including most of the answers. It really is a mess and has been very difficult to use.Published 14 months ago by JK
