Teaching and learning
The Cambridge IGCSE Latin syllabus aims to develop learners' ability to understand Latin, leading to a recognition of Latin's influence on modern European languages. By comparing the structure of Latin with other languages, learners also develop an analytical approach to language learning. They study Latin prose and verse literature in its social and historical context, and are encouraged to develop a personal response to what they read. This will develop an awareness of a different time and culture, and an appreciation of Rome's legacy to the modern world.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 3, 4, 5 and 6. Check the administrative zone for your school.
