Latin as an Employment Benefit!

If you worked for Galore Park publishing house, you could learn Latin over your lunch hour! Galore Park was featured in a BBC News video story this week as well as in the Daily Mail. (Doctor Who fans will especially enjoy the BBC clip!)

Galore Park publishes Latin Prep and So You Really Want to Learn Latin (Books I-III) as well as Greek: A New Guide for Beginners. They also publish a book of Latin puzzles (written by Julian Morgan of J-PROGS) as well as workbooks and review/revision materials for students who plan to take the GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education, a set of qualifications often required before taking A-levels, which are prerequisite for entrance into the British university system) or the Common Entrance exams (typically required for entrance into senior level independent British secondary schools).
