Eheu! My school is closed and I’m teaching remotely! What can I do?!


Cambridge Latin Course

If you have any worries or questions about using the CLC during your school’s closure, please do email for support.

You can also visit the CLC area of the Cambridge School Classics Project’s website for extensive advice and guidance. Visit and click on your chosen edition from the menu.

Finally, do have a look at the website of the North American Cambridge Classics Project ( for extra teaching resources, and training materials including their extensive back catalogue of teacher-support webinars.

Elevate is Cambridge University Press’ learning platform on which you can find supporting digital resources including:

  • WebBooks (online editions of the textbooks)
  • interactive version of the stories
  • language manipulation exercises
  • vocabulary testers
  • dictionaries
  • videos (5th edition only)

You can get a free trial of Elevate for 30 days.

To take advantage of this offer please click here.

Once there, scroll to the bottom of the course offerings for the Cambridge Latin Course, then complete the form. This will give you one book code for one user to access the free trial. You will need a code per user.

All users need to register with an active email address. This is the only piece of information that needs to be accurate in the form. To get enough codes for you and your students, you have two options:

  • The teacher uses their own e-mail as many times as needed to get the right number of codes and then emails them to their students.


  • Have students sign up with an active e-mail to receive the login information. The information they enter in the form can be inaccurate, they do not have to share their actual details. For example:


Our iPad textbooks give access to the content of the CLC via an iPad app. Once purchased, our iPad Textbooks can be used without an internet connection. In addition to the textbook content, the iPad Textbooks give access to our Story Explorers, our interactive dictionaries, a number of video introductions, as well as audio for stories and model sentences.
