Home Support

It is important than the study of languages is promoted at home. The more the students are familiarising themselves with the language, the better. It is very helpful to check that the students are completing their homework and studying the weekly Latin vocabulary. The students can also be encouraged to attend the weekly clubs which will boost their learning.
