Tests for Second Year Latin by Robert Henle

Today I finished writing the rough drafts for Second Year Latin tests on my site. I started this project on October 27, 2018. Took a while to finish. Do you have any idea how hard it is to write over 1,200 questions and answers for Second Year Latin by Robert Henle...

Visual Latin Errata, Lesson 14: Test 14

I received this question: - How is the translation of a quo (#12)both A) from where AND c) from whom? And, no pun intended, when was this taught? I can't find it.  - Related to this, #22, A quo venit aqua? Based on the lesson I would personally translate this as "From...

Second Year Latin: Test 20

Tomorrow is the last day of filming for Word Up.  Well, the last day for filming words, anyway. We will spend another week making me look like an idiot. Word Up, Volumes 2 and 3, should be available for sale before the next school year.   Of course, Word Up, Volume 1...

Made a long day less long…

More on the way…

Last week, I received this note: Just wanted to send a note to say thank you for the most excellent Word Up videos and let you know that we are eagerly awaiting the new series you are working on now. They are wonderfully informative as well as entertaining! But I...

Tennessee wins.
