Course Overview

This course is an introduction to Latin. It is a five-term course running from January 2024 until June 2025. It lays the groundwork for a GCSE in Latin. No prior knowledge of the subject is required.

The course broadly follows the Cambridge Latin Course and covers the grammar required for the Entry Level 3 qualification (OCR). Arrangements can be discussed to sit this qualification, but the coursework required by OCR means a suitable examination centre would need to be secured by the parents for the student.

Course Method

Students must procure the following textbooks in advance: Cambridge Latin Course Books 1 & 2, though initially Book 1 will be sufficient. The 4th edition should be obtained (Book 1: ISBN 9780521635431; Book 2: ISBN 9780521644686). A free online version of Book 1 can be found at

The classes involve mostly verbal translation with interaction from the students. They also involve the discussion of grammatical points and Roman culture, as well as exercises in written grammar and translation.

Vocabulary homework and a short written homework will be set each week (30 minutes total).

Course Details

Term 2 comprises ten weekly lessons. Each lesson lasts 45 minutes.

This PX Classroom is held on Mondays at 11am (London time zone) starting from Monday 8th April 2024. There will be no lesson on the Bank Holiday of 6th May or during the half-term week which commences 27th May. The last lesson is due to be on 24th June, 2024.
