Letter of the week. 🙂

A student sent this to me at the end of the school year.  Made me very happy. "Thank you Dwane for a wonderful year of Orberg Latin! A first for me. Even though there were a couple of days I had to miss, the online access will be of great help to rewatch.  As well the...

Where can I listen to Latin?

I received this question: I read you suggestion to listen to 10 minutes of Latin a day. Suggestions on where to get some audio? Here is my reply: When it comes to Latin pronunciation, scholars will talk your ears off.  And, they will get pretty frustrated when you get...
