About me

About Me: 

Hello there, I study German and Spanish at Bristol University, but have kept my Latin alive out of love for it. During term time, I'm a keen trampolinist. 

I have been lucky enough to work the the charity Kids Adventure, and have taught a bit of Spanish at a local primary school. 

 

The Sessions:

At the beginning of each session I'd ask you if there's anything you'd prefer me to do for you, so you get more out of our time.

Language learning should obviously be very interactive! I would be happy to chat to you in Spanish to improve oral and listening skills, or we could discuss tricky grammar until it comes to you naturally.

We'd go at your speed, and I'll happily repeat points until that eureka moment.  

Be it grammar, vocab, or set texts especially, language learning should be fun. 

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

How to learn a Latin GCSE set text?

Merely memorising a set text is neither fun nor advisable as you could be given any section in the exam. To really understand what the author means, as well as be able to translate it, you should read the Latin next to the English. You could have the Latin on one page and an English translatio...

Merely memorising a set text is neither fun nor advisable as you could be given any section in the exam. To really understand what the author means, as well as be able to translate it, you should read the Latin next to the English. You could have the Latin on one page and an English translation, as well as an explanation of the grammar on the other side. Alternatively, you could print out your Latin text with double spacing, and write the English underneath.

I would also suggest using colours. For example, highlight all the verbs green, any ablative absolutes yellow and the nouns red etc. This will cement your knowledge of the trickier pieces of grammar and highlight any literary devices such as tricolons. 

It sounds dull, but if you ensure you understand every word you will find that the literary criticism comes naturally. Good luck, and try to enjoy the process!
