I received this question:
Would you please provide your input as far as having my children take the NLE this year? They are currently in your Henle Latin 1 class and although they cannot always attend your live sessions…they have been keeping pace right with the schedule.
It has been a good experience thus far and they are doing well. Both still like Latin:).
Which exam would they take? This will be a first experience.
Here is my reply:
I am not the biggest fan of the National Latin Exam. It doesn’t really match up with any one Latin book. Not the fault of the writers of the exam. I don’t know how they could.
That said, I do think it is a great way to practice Latin.
I have taught the exams in the past. If you want to watch those classes, just go here: https://dwanethomas.com/previous-classes-4/
