Online Winter Refresher Day
The Belfast Summer School Winter Refresher Day will take place online on Saturday 19th February 2022, from 10am until 3.30pm GMT.
The following classes are available:
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.
Beginners Greek is for those seeking to refresh the important elements of the language. Students will cover the basic grammar principles to kickstart their revision, and examining some key vocabulary to help students conquer the introductory chapters of their chosen textbook.
Lower Intermediate Greek is for those who already know some ancient Greek. You already understand the present tense active forms, first and second declension nouns and prepositions. We will continue with future, imperfect and aorist tenses, and third declension nouns.
Upper Intermediate Greek will revise middle verbs and the passive voice in all tenses.
Advanced Greek – this class will read prose and verse passages selected from the A level syllabus, and points of grammar will be explained as they arise.
Students will be provided with worksheets and handouts and it is not necessary to purchase a textbook.
The fee for this intensive revision day is £35 and is open to all aged 13 and over.
