Teaching and Learning Strategies

Teaching Method 1 - Other
Description: The knowledge and skills built up in CLAH641 and CLAH642 are developed via further language classes (reinforcing constructions already learned, adding nuances, and adding some new constructions). In addition, regular unseen translation classes provide the opportunity to develop techniques for coping with continuous latin. Regular reading of set text material allows these skills to be refined and reinforced.
