It can be used alone, as a main text supplemented by readings and cultural material, or as a supplementary grammatical work text for a reading-oriented course. Each book consists of 30 lessons intended for a year-long course in Latin. Taken together, the three books form a complete course for grades 7-9 or 6-8. Vocabulary in the series is based on Cicero, Vergil, Ovid, and Pliny. After completing New Steps in Latin, students will be ready to read these or other unaltered Latin authors. New First Steps (grade 6 or 7): conjugations 1-4, active and passive voice- declensions 1-5- simple sentences. New Second Steps (grade 7 or 8):participles, infinitives, relative clauses, indirect statement- complex sentences- connected reading.
