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 over 3,000 videos all arranged by units.  You could go from beginning Latin to advanced Latin easily on my site.   

=================================================

Here is the quick schedule:

Latin 3: Third Year Latin by Robert Henle  • 6:30-6:55 am CST Monday – Friday   (Indefinitely postponed.  Just can’t handle the boredom.  I’ll pick it up again.  Just not sure when.)

German • 5:00-5:25 am CST  Monday – Saturday  

Spanish • 7:00-7:25 am CST  Monday – Friday  

French • 7:30-7:55 am CST  Monday – Friday 

Latin 2: Lingua Latina, Exercitia Latina  • 8:00-8:25 am CST  Monday – Friday  

Latin 1 & 2: Lingua Latina, Per Se Illustrata  • 8:30-8:55 am CST  Monday – Friday  

=================================================

Okay, here are the longer explanations:  

Ancient languages

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   (This class is indefinitely postponed.  I will pick it back up again.  Not sure when.  There is virtually no interest in this class.)   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.

 

Latin (The Lingua Latina series):

Latin 1 & 2: Lingua Latina, Per Se Illustrata  • 8:30-8:55 am CST  Monday – Friday                                                                                                                  Join me as we read our way through all of  Hans Ørberg’s brilliant book, Lingua 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.    

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.

Modern languages

German  5:00-5:25 am CST Monday – Saturday
Don’t worry.   You do not have to come to the live class.  I know it’s early.  This is more an exercise in self-discipline for me.  Of course, if the time works for you, you are more than welcome to come to the live class.  But, there is no need to.  As always, classes will be recorded and will be available on my site.  You can watch them anytime.  24/7.  In this class, we will be reading through the book Margarita Madrigal’s Magic Key to German.  Unfortunately, the book is out of print.  If you really want a physical copy, be prepared to pay hundreds of dollars!  You can order a physical copy here.  If you want a free digital copy, simply go here: https://dwanethomas.com/german-resources/

 

Spanish • 7:00-7:25 am CST  Monday – Friday
Notice:  I am not fluent in Spanish. We will be learning together.  There will be many references to Latin. Though knowledge of Latin will help, it is not required for this course.   

In 2022, we will be using the book  All Spanish Method by Guillermo Aviles.  At the end of December 2021 we had reached chapter 23.  

French • 7:30-7:55 am CST  Monday – Friday 
Notice:  I am not fluent in French. We will be learning together.  There will be many references to Latin. Though knowledge of Latin will help, it is not required for this course.

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.
