Euroclassica Reviews

This section of the website will contain reviews of recent publications of books and resources for pedagogical use in schools.  It will include textbooks for language courses, books of interest to students taking non-linguistic civilisation courses, books about the philosophy of Classics education for teachers, reference books, and online e-resources.  Please contact me if there is any book you would like to review and I shall attempt to obtain a copy for you.  Please submit any short reviews of textbooks you are already using if you think they will be of interest to other teachers in other European countries. We’ll accept reviews in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. We welcome reviews in the major working languages of books and resources written in other languages. If you would like to join the team of reviewers, please let me know and I’ll send you our reviewing guidelines.
