Innovative visual elements such as arrows and colored text emphasizing and connecting important points bring clarity and energy to the grammatical material. Information is delivered via small text boxes that allow students to use a step-by-step approach to learning forms and syntax, and comprehensive example sentences illustrate each topic in detail. Abundant color illustrations add personality and humor, producing a visual appeal unusual to Latin grammars.
