GCSE Latin for Beginners, Weeks 6 - 10 (Level 1)

Current Course

Saturday 6 November - 4 December 2021 (5 weeks) 

Overview

This course extension is suitable for students who have successfully completed the starter course (5 weeks) and wish to keep up their momentum & progress on this new Latin journey. 

This time, there will be a greater emphasis on translation & students will start to take greater responsibility over their learning through a blend of live and pre-recorded interactive lessons. By investing in a textbook, students can start to get to grips with the practicalities of self-study in Latin and have access to extra translation exercises. They will also benefit from the support of their tutor throughout. 

What will we cover?

In Weeks 6 - 10 we will pick up half-way through Chapter 2 of Latin to GCSE Book 1 and continue learning new grammar, syntax and vocabulary in line with the OCR specification. Students will read and translate short mythological stories from the Trojan War cycle. They will continue to gain ideas and tools for self-study that will last beyond the course, whilst also receiving the support and personalised feedback (on language exercises and translations) necessary to progress with confidence. 

Required textbook: Cullen & Taylor. Latin to GCSE Part 1. Bloomsbury, 2016.

There will be an optional end-of-month assessment at the end of Week 10 so that students can put their skills into practice with GCSE-style questions and receive feedback.
