Latin in long-term gymnasium

French Mathematics German Latin English

"Ne discere cessa!" means in German as much as: "Don't stop learning!" and is the motto of our probationary period courses. The first hurdle is cleared with the successful Gymi exam, but even the probationary period can only be passed with a lot of diligence and commitment. We will accompany you and your child.

Latin - Introductory course

The exam into the long-term gymnasium is done and already comes the next hurdle: The probationary period.
For newly entering high school students, already waiting after the summer vacations is the first Latin lesson: a new language and for many the stumbling block in the trial period.

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

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

In the long-term high school, Latin is a compulsory subject in the first two years. Latin classes are five hours per week.

This language is demanding. It requires perseverance, logic and practice. In contrast to elementary school, it is no longer possible without diligence.

Sometimes the student does not succeed, even though he or she is learning to start. Either the right exercises are missing or there is too little or wrong learning.

We repeat the material, consolidate the grammar with exercises. Young teachers motivate the students and give them confidence in Latin.
