Thanks M-U - I thought it had been solved but couldn't see where - eyes are painted on today
I hated Latin. As I said before we used ancient books and had an ancient teacher to learn an ancient language. After said teacher retired the school didn't offer Latin for years. Unsurprisingly nobody had continued Latin beyond the mandatory 2 years and nobody could remember the last time a student had done Latin O level.
Then about 15 years ago a lively, young teacher started teaching Latin again using modern language techniques, modern books, offering visits to see Latin inscriptions etc etc and generally helping pupils to understand modern language derivation.
Within a few years they had pupils studying Latin through to A Level.
Good teachers are worth their weight....
