"Unlike your usual textbook, this book allows you to start at any chapter that interests you. Why? Because the chapters are not arranged in the order of difficulty. On the other hand, the model conversations in each chapter are arranged in the order of difficulty. That is, grammatical structures of the conversations of Level 1 are simpler than those of Levels 2 and 3. Therefore it is quite possible to go through the entire book using only the conversations of Level I and then go through the book again, using Levels 2 and 3. . . . In conversational Latin, meaningful and realistic communication is the aim and goal. Accuracy comes with practice." - From the Author's How to Use This Book.
