The student's fear of the text

Every student knows her: The difficulty of translating Latin texts, the reality and content of which are hardly familiar to the modern reader. It's not easy to choose the right word from a wide variety of meanings given in dictionaries such as Stowasser, and it can make you sweat! And so Latin style blossoms arise like the translation of ""usus magister optimus"" with ""a burned teacher is the best""...

A book for pupils and teachers

The editor Rudolf von Spann has compiled the most beautiful Latin style blossoms in his booklet - to the delight of teachers and pupils alike. Many a text gains a lot of entertainment through the Latin style blossoms ... and thus introduces the pupil to the old texts in a funny way. And last but not least, he will certainly not produce these Latin style blossoms himself! This benefits not only the student, but also the teacher, who is spared some despair when correcting.

Latin style blossoms in a beautiful composition

The entertaining booklet presents not only funny Latin style blossoms, but also absurd ideas from history lessons. The witty texts are accompanied by illustrations in which the Latin style blossoms are made clear once again.

The funny translations and the apt drawings make everyone's schooldays wake up with a smile!
