Learn & Revise Latin is a CD-ROM based course arranged in two sections, providing learning and revision facilities to both beginners and more experienced learners. The CD-Rom is designed to help people to acquire and perfect their knowledge of the essentials of Latin. Level 1 concentrates on basic elements of grammar and simple sentence construction. In level 2 more complex concepts of grammar and translation are presented.
The CD-ROM allows learners to progressively improve their understanding of Latin texts. The varied exercises and games offered enable them to assimilate the essentials of vocabulary and structure, and enable them to consolidate their knowledge of basic grammar and syntax and improve their translation skills between Latin and English.
Each activity presented is supported by specific aids and examples. Mistakes are corrected with reminders of the grammatical rules. Learners can progress at their own pace and can continuously monitor their own progress through use of personalised score-sheets. Many different types of exercises are offered: multiple-choice questions, puzzles, rearranging of letters and sentences, word-guessing games, etc.
