Overview

Essential GCSE Latin is a practical and accessible guide for students. Covering all the linguistic requirements (grammar, syntax and vocabulary) for GCSE Latin, the book is closely linked to OCR’s current syllabus. This immensely useful textbook provides straightforward and easy to understand explanations of every grammatical construction needed for GCSE, from ablative absolutes to result clauses. Each point of grammar is generously illustrated with examples and practice sentences.
The book concentrates on understanding the principles behind accidence and syntax, reducing the need for rote learning. 650 practice sentences provide ample opportunity for the student to get to grips with every point of grammar as it is introduced. Essential GCSE Latin can be used on its own, or a revision guide for a fast but comprehensive recap of the language. Helpful, concise and clear, the book has an easily navigable structure which breaks down the language into bite-sized sections.
Essential GCSE Latin also includes a list of all the vocabulary needed for the exam and a glossary of grammar terms for quick and easy reference. An appendix of fifteen practice passages provides further experience and helps equip the student for the current Language 2 paper. This new edition includes revised exercises throughout the book and updated vocabulary. New online resources provide the answer keys and additional help.
