I don't do Extension (too much effort), I'm only doing Continuers.

LOL wow 2 people. Well for Aeneid it was like translate passages from wherever, multiple choice grammar (and my teacher chose a few grammar points which weren't from Liz's workbook which sucked), contextual questions like what triggered Turnus to say these words and a question on techniques and characterisation. And for Livy it was translate passages and literary techniques. Oh and we have our unseen component next week because there wasn't enough time haha a

2 people is still more than last year, haha. I reckon I can ace the prepared/commentary/etc, because I know Livy and Virgil quite well. But I can't stand unseens. They are SOOOO hard

Yeah last year no one in our school did Latin at all.
Hhahahaa same you should see the extension unseens - they're harder and you have to answer questions about them too, so if your translation isn't right you're pretty screwed :'(

How do you even prepare for unseens? I've memorized the 1st page of the syllabus vocab, then I just cbf. I end up just using my guessing skills for half the passage.

We get like one every week to do as homework and our teacher marks them. Yeah we used to have like a period every cycle to learn vocab but that died..

How is everyone going in their progress in Latin? My class has pretty much finished Virgil now, but we're a bit behind in Livy (Chapter 41).

Nice. Are you guys starting revision on the texts (e.g. commentary)? We've finished Virgil, and almost finished Livy. How did you find the Latin study day (assuming you went)?
