Well, shucks.

Tried to log into class just now and got this from Go To Webinar: “We have experienced a breakdown.” I guess now that everyone is online… we can’t be online. Sigh. I will try to film class later. This applies to Lingua Latina 2 at the moment.  We will see if I can get...

How to use the Henle 2 class

I received an inquiry yesterday about the Second Year Latin by Robert Henle class.  This video will show you how the class works. Currently, we are working through the exercises early in the morning.  We are in exercise 103 in chapter 17. On Tuesdays, we are still...

To be blunt…

I am going to get right to the point.   Because some of you need it. In his Letters to Children, C. S. Lewis says the following: "To be able to read Latin easily (i.e. without having to translate it mentally as you go along) is an enormous advantage later on. Practice...

This note made me happy today. My son just came out of his room and told me how much fun he was having doing his Latin translations. He’s not what I would consider a language-gifted kid. But your Visual Latin has made it easy for him. Thank you!Tina If you are not...

I’m back… I hope.

I haven't blogged in the longest time.  There are lots of reasons.  I am not going to get into them. I will say that Henle Latin is one of the big reasons.  I teach it because I know it helps so many of my students.  But, I am not a big fan.  It drains me...

Losing my voice

Guys, I know I haven't posted here in forever.  Just trying to get in touch with all of my students. Just tried to teach my first class of the morning and my voice didn't make it.  Not my month, as it turns out.  It's been a rough one. I am cancelling all early...

Where we are in the books these days (January 17, 2020)

Well... Happy New Year, everyone! I know I haven't posted at all in 2020. I haven't because... reasons.  How do I put this?  I just didn't start the new year with the motivation I usually have at the beginning of the year. Okay.  To the point. Here is where we are in...

We’ve been fooled!

I have subscribed to Robert Kiyosaki's email list for years. I am a big fan of the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad.  In fact, there is a standing offer in my house.  If my kids read the book and talk to me about it, I will give them $100. This morning, while catching up on...

Schedule and Status update

I've been quiet on my blog for a bit.  Christmas break and all that, you know? I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! And, now this post will take an updatey turn.  Updatey is a real word, by the way.  I just made it up, used it twice, and published it on the internet....
