This is the class schedule for the 20202021 school year. 

There will be no classes at all during the month of May.  Beacuse… allergies. 

Any summer classes will be announced here and on the blog.  

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 2,000 videos all arranged by units.  You could go from beginning Latin to advanced Latin easily on my site.

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-2/.   I will no longer be teaching this class live.

Second Year Latin  • 6:00-6:25 am CST Mondays – Saturdays                                                                                                                                                                              Join me as we work our way through all of the exercises in Second 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  Second Year Latin, I intend to teach Third Year Latin and 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.

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.
