Latin - 1 and 2
There are two Latin groups.
Latin 1 meets on alternate Mondays from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm at a member's home in Theydon Bois.
This group follows course published for schools at an elementary level. Each member has a copy of the course handbook. The group has followed one course through to pre-GCSE level and moved on to a more advanced text. Members prepare a passage by translating it or do a language exercise. This "homework" is then checked within group meetings and the group then looks at other aspects of the language in the context of Roman culture.
Latin 2 is more advanced and uses texts to AS-level and up to A-level standard. There is some instruction and learning through work sharing. Members do translation exercises and also examine aspects of the language in the context of Roman culture and history. To benefit from this group, members would need to arrive with a level of understanding of the language up to O-level. This group also meets on alternate Mondays from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, alternating with Latin 1.
The group leader is Robyn Marsh whose contact details are available in the Epping Forest U3A Prospectus.
