I received this question:
I have a son who is almost 12 and has completed The Latin Road volume 1 and most of volume 2. His brain seems to compute Latin well. Do you think he would be a candidate for one of your classes, or should he hold off? I was planning on him doing a Second Form Latin class with Memoria Press, but your class seems so much more appealing.
Here is my reply:
Unfortunately, I am not too familiar with the Latin road. I need to order that series.
All of my classes start at the beginning. So, it is quite possible he could jump in and keep up. My classes are aggressive. My goal is to have students reading the New Testament in Latin within two years. It can be done. I have taken thousands of students across this line. But… it isn’t easy.
Fortunately, I record every class I teach. This provides students with a bit of insurance. If class becomes too much, they can always slow down and move at their own pace.
You can get a feel for the classes by checking out the book Lingua Latina. It’s the toughest Latin book out there, but it is the best, by far. (Anyone who says differently is selling something.) It is also the most entertaining.
