This collection of Latin unseen passages forms a companion volume to Latin Momentum Tests for GCSE, and is intended to be used similarly by students preparing for examinations at AS, A2 and AEA levels. The largest section is set at AS level and comprises prose passages forming a coherent story based on original sources but simplified to maintain a level of difficulty appropriate for this level. The text assumes the student will have a working knowledge of a typical vocabulary list of about 1000 words. Most of the rest of the passages are, with rare exceptions, un-adapted Latin, both prose and verse, taken from the authors used in the examinations. Difficult or rare words are glossed. The last few passages are of a standard of difficulty appropriate to AEA level. All passages are of a similar length and format to those used in the examinations. One sample mark scheme has been included to give teachers and students some insight into how these unseens are marked in the examinations.

This volume is designed to accompany the OCR A-Level specification in Latin (first teaching September 2016), with practice unseen passages from Livy, the set prose for Paper 1, together with passages from a selection of other writers to support Paper 2, for which no author is set. A bank of 80 passages aims to take Sixth Form students from the level of heavily adapted post-GCSE ('AS'-equivalent) passages and develop their knowledge and skills to reach A-Level standard. But this is not just a book of unseen passages: there is a chronological progression through the unseens in order to give the reader a sense of the narrative of Roman history, exploring key events through the words of original texts. Every passage begins with an introduction, outlining the basic content of the passage, followed by a 'lead-in' sentence, paraphrasing the few lines before the passage begins. Part 1 passages are straight translation exercises on the model of the A-Level Paper 1. They also feature, however, a 'Discendum' box, highlighting a facet of Latin prose with which students may not be familiar, or extension questions on grammar and style. Part 2 passages are accompanied by questions on comprehension, translation and grammar, replicating the demands of Paper 2 in full. An extensive word list is provided in the form of checklists which build the reader's knowledge of the most commonly occurring words and phrases in Latin prose. The passages are punctuated with discussions of Roman history during the periods covered in the passages, and a comprehensive introduction includes portraits of the authors featured in the book, as well as grammatical reminders to help readers deal with both the trickier elements of unseen prose and with A-Level grammatical analysis questions.

This collection of tests provides practice for students preparing to take the new Latin language examinations at the WJEC examination board Levels 1 and 2. It also includes tests similar to those used in the OCR examination board GCSE examinations. The book is divided into five sections, each devoted to a different format or level of tests. Words that are not expected to be known at each level are glossed. The range of grammatical and syntactical features is similar to that found in the public examinations. The tests are designed to cover translation and comprehension of specially constructed stories in Latin. Readers are not expected to have familiarity with any particular course book, and the stories may also be used simply as a graduated Latin reader, if desired.

This is the endorsed publication from OCR and Bloomsbury for the Latin AS and A-Level (Group 3) prescription of Aeneid Book XI, lines 1–224, and the A-Level (Group 4) prescription of Aeneid Book XI, lines 498–521, 532–596, 648–689, and 725–835, giving full Latin text, commentary and vocabulary, with a detailed introduction that also covers the prescribed text to be read in English for A Level. In Book XI Pallas, the warrior son of Evander who was killed by Turnus, is buried, amid the mourning of his father and the Trojans. After a truce to collect and bury the dead on both sides, fighting resumes, during which the warrior-maiden Camilla battles bravely for the Latins before being killed. The events of the book take up just four days: Pallas' funeral occupies the first; the second and third are devoted (briefly) to the truce and burials; the fourth, taking up the second half of the book, is concerned with Camilla's aristeia, in which she is likened to an Amazon.

Advanced Latin offers a range of material to help students build and develop the knowledge and skills needed for A2 and Pre-U Latin. There are 24 translation/comprehension exercises, based on passages taken predominantly from Livy, Caesar and Ovid. These match exactly the requirements of A2, but the passages work equally well as unseens for those working towards Pre-U. Six further passages are offered for unseen translation only, and are designed to stretch the most able. There are then 12 passages of continuous prose for translation into Latin, each supported by notes to help the student; and an appendix that contains a comprehensive English-Latin vocabulary. To support the study of A2 and Pre-U literature, there are short commentaries on sample passages from each of the prescribed authors, demonstrating a variety of interpretative approaches. In addition, for each author there is an annotated bibliography, to guide both teacher and student to the most useful secondary literature available. A separate section focuses on the Pre-U unseen literary criticism option and offers six practice passages.

Da hat nun Charlotte, die ordentliche, nach dem kampflosen Verschwinden der Mutter den Genießervater am Hals, Künstleragent mit nicht zu bremsendem Hang zu Vier-Sterne-Hotels, aktiven Damen und stilvollen Geschäften. Bis der sie ausgerechnet bei der chaotischen Künstlerin Delphine absetzt, deren punkige Tochter Jane ganz zufällig einen – gleichfalls abgängigen – Vater hat, der fast so heißt wie der von Charlotte. Was bleibt zwei scharfsinnigen Teenagern da schon übrig, als sich zu verbünden und auf den Kreuzzug der Schadensbegrenzung zu begeben, per Ahnenforschung und Computer? Einmal mehr erweist sich Milena Moser als die Erzählerin der tragikomischen Achterbahn von Neigungen und Bindungen in unserer Zeit – Abstürze, Kollisionen, Entgleisungen und Himmelfahrten inbegriffen.
