How to Study

  • column aniStart early! The night before a quiz is too late!
  • Use LonghornLatin.com!
  • Make flashcards of vocabulary and endings. Use different color markers or cards. On the card draw a picture or a crazy memory device to help.
  • Make sure you can read and translate every sentence of every story!!
  • Do all exercises in the chapter (yes, even if they’re not assigned!)
  • Use all charts
  • Use your vocab sheets: fold over definitions to quiz yourself. All notes should be taken on vocab sheets, and there is a summary of the grammar (res scienda) on the back.
  • Know your verba scienda in order to get bonus points
  • Translate sentences and stories to your parents; if they don’t make sense they’re wrong!
  • Have your parents or a friend quiz you with your flashcards.
  • DO SOMETHING!!! DON”T JUST READ OR LOOK OVER THE MATERIAL. For most people, reading isn’t studying. You need to rewrite it, say it, move it (e.g. matching flashcards )
  • Study with a friend or group
  • Work though all worksheets
  • Use songs!
