Long-track Gymnasium Latin

French Mathematics German Latin English

“Ne discere cessa!” means "Never stop learning!" and is the motto of our probationary period courses. You've passed the entrance exams to the Gymnasium and now it's time to diligently apply your energies to the probationary period. We can accompany you on this journey.

Latin - Introduction course

The exams for the long-term gymnasium have been passed and the next hurdle is already coming: The probationary period.
For new gymnasium pupils, the first Latin lesson is already waiting after the summer holidays: a new language and for many the stumbling block in the probationary period.

Our experience shows that Latin can become a burden for many students during the probationary period. Therefore, we offer an introductory course in Latin before the probationary period.

In our course the students learn the structure of the language, the cases, the vocabulary of the probationary period, simple translations.

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.
