Probationary period

Latin during the probationary period

Latin is a required subject for the first two years of long-track Gymnasium. Latin lessons are five hours a week.

This is a challenging language. It requires practice, logic and hard work. In Gymnasium, you can no longer get by without studying.

Some students struggle in Latin even with study. They may not know how to study well or have access to the best exercises.

We review the material and solidify grammar skills through practice. Young teachers motivate the students and give them confidence in Latin lessons.

Probationary period
repetition course during autumn holidays

After students have passed the entrance examinations for Gymnasium, they have to focus on the probationary period. Even if the transition is difficult, it's never too late to study. Latin is often the determining factor for passing the probationary period.
