After their success in Latin, most of them requested to start learning Classical Greek which they have now been doing for the last three months. Several of them hope to take GCSE in the future. I have been using An Introduction to Classical Greek by Kristian Waite and Fred Pragnell. We shall then move on to John Taylor’s Books 1 & 2 – Greek to GCSE and eventually begin our study of Greek literature.
I am also now a Subject Advisor for Classical Greek for the U3A throughout England and Wales so I shall do as much as possible to promote the subject.
It is very gratifying to realise how popular Classics has become in Wales through all age ranges. I am now in fact teaching from 9 years old to 79, both in the classroom and on skype! Long may it continue!
