Learning Classics is a bit like putting on a magic pair of 3-D glasses. Once you start delving into the language and the culture, you'll start to see it all around you. This blog is a record of the club's journey through the worlds and language of ancient Rome and Greece... and through modern times, too, searching for the influence of classics all around us. You'll also be able to find vocab, home tasks, links and generally enlightening info here, too.

The Seven Rules of Translation

  1. Don’t rush!
  2. Section off the sentence or clause for translation.
  3. Find the verb in your sentence/clause and parse it (number? person? tense?).
  4. Find the noun in the nominative that governs the verb in your sentence/clause.
  5. See if there are any accusative nouns (direct objects) in the sentence/clause.
  6. Make a basic translation.
  7. Fit any other words in your sentence/clause (e.g. adverbs, locations) into your translation.
