Help for learning classical greek... watch

    • Thread Starter

    I chose Greek in year 9 and it has been one of my worst decisions.
    I hate the subject with a deep, deep passion, and I am overwhelmed with the amount of irregulars, vocab, grammar etc
    I go to a private school where the average GCSE grade needed is an A, and come from a family where anything less than an A star is scandalous.
    Do you have any general tips to make my life any easier, and tips to boost my memory? Appreciate any help.

    Sorry you feel that way , but the only way to get better is by practice . To get an A in subject as hard as Classical Greek you must get ahead with your studies and do more than in class/ homework . Is there a Classical Greek / Classics club that you could join,because the more time you spend with your tutor learning and Relearning the Vocab and Grammar especially ,the higher your levels increase. Languages like Greek and Latin require lots of raw learning, the more time you spend the better the outcome. Learning to love the subject may make you more motivated to do well and get that A star
