Help with Visual Latin lesson 6.

I received this question: Hi, I'm working through the Visual Latin curriculum with my kids. On lesson 6c (Reading and translation), I believe there may be a mistake in the declension of the word "herba" in a couple of the sentences.   -"Suntne bestiae et herba in...

Another letter of the month.

I just wanted to say thank you for your Latin classes. I started Latin in 7th grade with classical conversation and did well in everything except Latin (I mean I was failing) and i didn’t get any better for 3 years. At the beginning of the year someone recommended...

Going downhill quickly.

Guys, I am going to cancel all of my morning classes tomorrow (Friday, November 2, 2018). I abruptly canceled three this morning because I was having vision problems.  What I failed to mention was that I was also not feeling well.  I had hoped the sensation would...
