Reading Comprehension
 You will be given a story that is similar in theme, vocabulary and content to the stories in
stage 28. Make sure to re-read each of these stories at least three times each, once for
familiarity, once for grammar, once for translation.

Britain. Be sure to review the stage 28 culture, and make note of
o Literary evidence
o Archeological evidence
o Inscriptional evidence
Derivatives

the Latin roots to familiar English words. Make sure to review page 163 in your textbook.
 Practicing your vocabulary wouldn’t kill you, either.
