This lively course on the origins and use of words derived from Latin and Greek, which make up over half the words commonly used in English and permeate all levels of education, is aimed at 11- to 13-year-olds. Each unit of the course is divided into three sections: the first tells a story from Classical mythology; the second explores the etymology and structure of words; the third is about English grammatical terminology and requires the students to manipulate the Greek alphabet. The course is illustrated and a Teacher's Pack of material to accompany it is available separately.
