This course aims to teach students to read /translate Latin texts. The Cambridge Latin Course is organized in such a way that students can easily progress at their own pace. Learning this skill (as any skill) requires that the learner reads for at least five minutes each day of the week. PowerPoint Presentations and games are valuable resources that MUST be viewed and reviewed often. The teacher will GUIDE by explaining concepts, but the student must clearly understand each grammatical point and become very familiar with new words as they appear in the stories and in the introductory pages of each Stage.
The assignment will always be READ, READ and RE-READ some more.
