Web Materials for the Oxford Latin Course by Robert Cape

This workbook is designed to help students practice and review material associated with the Oxford Latin Course (OLC). The OLC emphasizes reading and oral question and answer as the primary ways of learning Latin, but it makes some use of formal grammar. While the thrust of this approach differs from the older grammar-based methods, students still need practice with declension and conjugation paradigms and rules of syntax. This workbook provides an easy way for students to practice the Latin forms and receive immediate feedback on their answers. The workbook may be used outside of class for extra practice, by homeschoolers using the OLC, or it may be used as part of a class in a computer lab environment. For those using other texts, or reviewing Latin grammar, use the Grammar Index.
