Visual Latin and Lingua Latina?

I received this question:

My daughter is taking your visual Latin year one. According to the syllabus, it says that in lesson 10 to start reading one chapter in lingua Latina every two visual Latin lessons. Would you please describe what this looks like or give me an example of how she is supposed to interact with this book.

Here is my reply:

If I were you, I would wait until she finishes lesson 10, or so, in Visual Latin.

At that point, I would recommend she start reading Lingua Latina.  Just treat it like a novel, which is what it is.  This will give her a lot of extra practice with the language. 

After lesson 10, in Visual Latin, have her read a chapter one of Lingua Latina.  Have her take her time.  It is not going easy.  Lingua Latina is a tough, tough book.  But, it is well worth it.  There is nothing quite like it. 

If she finds herself overwhelmed by Lingua Latina at some point in the future, you are more than welcome to join one of my online classes.  I take students through Lingua Latina every year.
