But Will Griffiths, director of the Cambridge School Classics Project, maintains the textbook has the right approach.
'Latin used to be taught by telling students a lot of endings. That worked for some kids, but across the board it's a highly inefficient way of teaching people to read Latin,' he said.
While education secretary Michael Gove has talked publicly of the need to entice more pupils into taking Latin, Griffiths thinks the numbers could grow if the government dispensed with the spin.
Griffiths said the numbers taking Latin would grow even more if the subject was made easier - something that politicians are unlikely to advocate in an era when the public mistakenly believes that young people effortlessly conjure A and A star grades out of thin air.
'If people had a bit more guts to come out and say that this subject is too hard for most kids, I don't see any reason at all why Latin GCSE should not be just as accessible as history, French and maths,' he said.
