Can’t make it to the live classes? 

No problem.  I record every class I teach, and I only take them down if I am updating them.  

Currently, there are around 2,500 videos all arranged by units.  You could go from beginning Latin to advanced Latin easily on my site.

Okay, here are the longer explanations:  

Latin. (The Henle Latin series):

First Year Latin by Robert Henle is done

I spent six years taking students through that book and we are finished.  Members can watch those classes anytime, 24/7 right here: https://dwanethomas.com/previous-classes-4/.   I will no longer be teaching this class live.

 

Second Year Latin  by Robert Henle is done.  

I spent four and a half years taking students through that book and we are finished.  Members can watch those classes anytime, 24/7 right here: https://dwanethomas.com/previous-classes-4/.   I will no longer be teaching this class live.                                                                                                                                                                                             

Third Year Latin  • 6:30-6:55 am CST Mondays – Fridays                                                                                                                                                                                         Join me as we work our way through Third Year Latin by Robert Henle.  I do my best to make the boring Henle series endurable.   Endurable is the best I can do.  After we finish, Third Year Latin, I intend to teach Fourth Year Latin by Robert Henle.  It will take years. 

 If you don’t want to wait around, and if you really want to learn Latin, and if you don’t want to be bored out of your mind, do yourself a favor.  Switch to Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.  

Fourth Year Latin by Robert Henle is coming.  I will start it when I finish Third Year Latin by Robert Henle.

Lingua Latina, Exercitia Latina  • 8:00-8:25 am CST  Mondays – Fridays  
Join me as we work our way through all of the exercises in Hans Ørberg’s brilliant book, Exercitia Latina.  If you want to learn Latin really well, and if you want to enjoy it… then,  read Hans Ørberg’s books.   Simple as that.

Can’t make it to a live class?  No worries.

I record every class I teach, and I only take them down if I am updating them.  I have quite a few students who use the previous classes only.  In fact, many prefer this as they can move at their own rate.  Students are always welcome to contact me if they have any questions.
