Latin is also widely used in the medical profession, law, agriculture and zoology and is the base for many modern European languages and there is a growing interest in the leaning of Latin.
The book does not shrink from issues of death, war and slavery that were at the fore in this period of history. Minimus leads the reader KS2 , via well illustrated cartoons, in learning the roots of the Latin language. This is done via a series of activities that can be completed as a group or individually.
In doing this, Minimus restates several components of English grammar and therefore the teacher can use this book to reinforce English language teaching. The book pinpoints the roots of English words still in current usage, derived from the Latin.

The second course adds imperfect tense verbs, but it also is more explicit and expansive on other aspects of grammar. In the second lesson, it introduces the concept of masculine, feminine, and neuter nouns as well as adjectival agreement. So, while grammar is taught, grammatical explanations sometimes lag behind the vocabulary that students are reading in the story.

The first course uses only present-tense verbs and first and second-declension nouns. Along the way, it also teaches a great deal of basic grammar that applies to both English and Latin as it teaches about nouns, verbs, pronouns, infinitives, adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions, subjects, objects, and other topics. Most lessons follow a similar pattern.
They begin with the cartoon story. The story is introduced in English so students understand the context of the story.
All cartoon captions are in Latin, but the cartoon illustrations also help students grasp the meaning. Students will need to answer grammar questions either orally or in writing. In the second course, students should definitely be writing out many of their responses.
Sometimes, the report includes discussion questions. It includes translations of the cartoon scripts into English for each lesson, answer keys, background information, additional teaching suggestions, and activities.They travel to Cataractonium where they spend the night in the mansio.
