How do we pronounce Latin at school?

Students from Πειραματικό Λύκειο Αγίων Αναργύρων and from IES de Poio present two short films on Hercules and Cacus.
Listen to story of Cacus narrated by Titus Livius in his word Ab Urbe Condita (I. 7. 4-7), notice the differences in the way students from Greece (1st video) and from Spain (2nd video)pronounce Latin, and try to answer the questions!
In case you need a dictionary, click here!

Here's the Latin text and here's an English translation of the passage.

Graciñas, Álvaro.

Participei no curso de Chiron en Santiago no ano 2008.

Esa experiencia servíume para entrar neste mundo e para aprender unha morea de cousas. E enganchoume.

Fóstedes todos vos uns profesores magníficos.
