Do you use the Cambridge Latin text books? If so, make sure that you go to the black pages and learn all of the vocabulary on them. Also make sure you learn the verb endings for present and past tense, as well as any irregulars, then the rest falls into place. Luckily for us, Latin is very similar to English and Romance languages so it is very easy (in my opinion anyway). You are definitely starting at the right time (coming from someone who got 100% in Latin). Good luck
I agree with the above poster: use the grammar tables at the back of the CLC textbooks and learn those. There is also a useful course called 'So You Really Want to Learn Latin?', which has three books going from absolute beginner to GCSE and I use these to good effect as a crash revision course with members of my GCSE group who want a refresher in the grammar.
By all means send me a PM if you're still struggling and I'll see if I can help/suggest anything else which might be useful.
Thankyou so much! We used to use CLC but now we just do grammar. I am just unsure how to learn ALL the tenses/conjugations etc. in such a short space of time (I only have Latin once a week as I do it as an extra)
Memrise- cannot recommend enough for learning vocabulary (and that goes for other languages too). Free online tool- check it out
I just did my latin gcse in january and I got an A*. I would say you MUST MUST MUSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. I cannot stress enough, you must learn your vocabulary. I barely focused on the grammar, only learnt how to spot the perfect, imperfect and pluperfect tenses. Also how to spot whether its I, You, He/She/It, We, You (plural), They.
