Beginners Latin will revise first conjugation verbs: present, imperfect, perfect and future; first declension nouns: all cases; prepositions using accusative and ablative, and basic sentence construction into latin and from latin using all these constructs, extending to basic clausal sentences with conjunctions (sed/et).
Lower Intermediate Latin is for students who already have the basics of Latin. You will be expected to understand what the different cases are, and at least one or two of the declensions. You will also be expected to understand the Present Tense Active forms of verbs. From there, we will revise the other noun declensions, as well as the other Active tenses, finally touching on the Passive voice and participles. We will do some practice sentences throughout and then attempt an unadapted passage of Latin.
Upper Intermediate Latin is for students who are familiar with all of the declensions and both the Active and Passive voices of all the verb tenses. We will cover more advanced grammar, beginning with the Subjunctive, and the different types of clauses (temporal, conditional, purpose, result), along with indirect statements and questions, before tackling a more advanced passage of Latin.
Advanced Latin: this class will read prose and verse passages selected from the A level syllabus, and points of grammar will be explained as they arise.
