Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Junior Cycle - Ancient Greek

Subject Group: Humanities
These subjects explore the ways in which humans live and communicate in the world. Human life is examined by looking at our past, our present and into our future. These subjects help people to express themselves clearly and develop their reasoning ability.

Brief Description:

There are two classical language subjects in junior cycle: Latin and Ancient Greek. You may get the opportunity to study one or maybe both of these subjects in your school. Latin and Ancient Greek still live on in the languages we speak today. They are invaluable in understanding English and of great help in learning modern European languages. They are our direct link to the world of Greece and Rome.


How will Ancient Greek be useful to me?

The classical languages will be useful to you in:

  • helping you solve problems and think for yourself
  • helping you to express yourself and your ideas more clearly
  • increasing your vocabulary
  • helping you to learn other languages
  • improving your general knowledge.

You can also continue studying classical languages at third level when you leave school.



Note: A revised specification that combines the current junior cycle subjects of Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies into a single subject called Classics will be taken by first year students from September 2017.
