I received this question:
My son took your Latin Henle Year 1 last year. We are trying to figure out which class would be the best next step for him to take. What would you suggest?
Here is my reply:
Since he has finished First Year Latin by Robert Henle, it really makes sense to move on to Second Year Latin by Robert Henle. Unfortunately, it’s not a very inspiring book. It does, however, introduce students to Caesar’s Gallic Wars. I find that book interesting. I’m not sure everyone else does.
For all of my students who finish First Year Latin by Robert Henle, I always recommend they read Lingua Latina. Of course, they’re more than welcome to attend the classes I teach on that book, but after finishing First Year Latin, I feel they are ready to read Lingua Latina on their own. From Lingua Latina, they can go in almost any direction they like. It really opens the doors.
