This is the class schedule for the 20202021 school year. 

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

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

But, there is no need to wait around for live classes…

After all, 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.  In other words, 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  • 7:00-7:25 am CST Mondays – Saturdays   (Currently postponed until September)                                                                                 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.  

Third Year Latin by Robert Henle is coming.  I will start it when I finish Second Year Latin by Robert Henle.  I plan to start in September of 2020. 

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

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.
