Spelling Tip – This Greek word means to have enough leisure time to study, it went on to become meaning somebody who is studious and by the time it entered common English usage in the 6th century schools had become a place where you leant Latin and singing in order to work in the cathedrals. During the middle ages only very rich boys were sent to school and our first universities were established Oxford and Cambridge to train priests.

Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
