Today we’re talking languages: tricks for memorising your vocab lists more easily, how to get your head round the grammar, and some handy exam technique tips to make sure you get the highest possible grade in your exams.

I’m joined by my friend Joe Hytner, an extremely experienced Classics teacher and private tutor. Joe is a Latin and Greek specialist, but many of his expert tips would apply equally to French, Spanish, German or any other modern language.
