Congratulations to the National Latin Exam Winners!

In March, 57 eighth grade students participated in the National Latin Exam, a multi-national test given to Latin students in middle and high school. This year's exam was given to over 136,000 students in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Japan,New Zealand, Poland, United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, and Taiwan. The test is a forty-question multiple choice exam that covers general knowledge of Latin grammar and vocabulary, mythology, ancient Roman customs, English/Latin derivatives, and translation abilities. Eleven Ottoson students earned awards on this year's Latin 1 exam. We are so proud of their hard work and outstanding achievements in Latin this year!

  1. On my opinion the best way to learn any language is to have constant speaking practice. In such case the best way is to find a tutor and native speakers. I can advise https://preply.com/en/London-UK/french-tutors for searching native speaking tutors. I've learnt English using this website. All other methods you can use as aditional way to gain new knowledge and practice already completed material. But I'm looking for new methods to improve my skiils. Can you help me?
