Latin Revision Help NeededWatch
I was wondering, if anyone had any tips for learning the Latin Set Texts, I got a D in my Latin Mock purely because I struggled to learn the texts. However my teacher assures me that I should be getting atleast an A if I can get a grasp of them. So yeah... any tips very welcome!
I make flash cards and carry them around with me everywhere ( I am past the point of caring about public appearances) and just read through them, I also quote bits at my family and friends randomly...
Also memorise a few sentences and phrases (and what they mean!) that will be relevant for the 10 and 8 markers, at the end of the day translation is only 5 marks from the papers, its far better to have a good understanding of the texts and have a list of stylistic points memorised than memorising all of the set texts word for word.. well thats what I do anyway, and I'm on an A (need an A* for A-level but anyhow)
Verse: The Aeneid
Prose: The corruption and cruelty of Verres and Cleomenes, Scaevola and Cloelia.
