• As you start to think about Latin next fall, here are some things you can do to review over the summer.

    Vocabulary: Review the vocab lists under the class tabs on the left, or check out the Quizlet and "Core Vocabulary" link under the Latin Websites tab. 

    If you are planning on taking the AP Exam next year, you may want to focus on the "AP Vocabulary List" under the Latin websites tab.


    Grammar: The simplest thing to do would be to read through the Grammar Guides under the class tabs on the left.  Simply reading through the documents once a week or so will help keep terminology fresh in your memory.  You may also check out the latintutorial.com website for videos to watch. 

    If you are planning on taking the AP Exam you may want to also start playing around with the "Hexameter Practice" website.
