Trial Classes

Ok so I thought that now would be a good time to see if we can start a class with exercises on a website called Quia. For the minute it will be a trial to see how many of you are going to be involved. So here is my profile
And hopefully you will be as enthusiastic about this as I am!!!
This is the class website: here

Here are the instructions:

Cambridge Latin Course

Some of you may be using the Cambridge Latin Course to study Latin (possibly if you study in the UK) , for those of you who haven't heard of it, it is the accompanying website to their published books which were used in my school. 
This is what they say
"Aims of the CLC
to teach comprehension of the Latin language for reading purposes;
to develop an understanding of the history and culture of Roman civilisation;
to encourage a wide range of approaches to language learning through the use of high quality audio-visual resources."

They have a great set of online resources, such as vocabulary testers and translation activities (as well as games for those times you want gentle "revision") 

So here is the link to their website:

Past Tense

So we have done present and future tense, now for past perfect tense. This time,  there wasn't a single sheet that explained everything so there are a number, which should between them explain everything clearly:

Recommendation


If you are someone who is teaching themsleves Latin, or just to go over everything in a slightly more ordered fashion then I definitely reccomend the about.com beginners Latin Tutorial, it clearly describes everything.

New Year slightly different topic

So, Hope that everyone had a great Christmas and New Year, 
Just before christmas we looked at the grammar, moving on we will now look at tenses and todays tense is... (the suspense :]) the present tense of course, since the grammar also involved a lot of this.
And here is the explanatory worksheet:
