The end of the school year is a terribly busy time of the year for me.
I am guessing it is for you as well.
I have received many questions via email during the last week. I am using today to catch up. You should be hearing from me soon.
Whenever I get overwhelmed, I take a break and practice French.
Starting this fall, I intend to begin teaching French. Really, I intend to begin learning French in front of my students. You are welcome to join us, and are welcome to point out any mistakes I make. This is how I learn.
We will be reading through a massive French book similar to Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg. If you would like to check it out, you can download it right here on my site: https://dwanethomas.com/french-resources/
I would offer you a link to buy it on Amazon, but the book has been out of print for sometime, and I simply cannot find it anywhere in the Internet world.
Anyway, as I respond to emails, and as I grow overwhelmed by all the questions, I take a break and read the French book. It helps. Studying languages has a calming effect on me. That, and mountain biking.
I’m looking forward to this class. I have wanted to learn French for years. I think this is going to be fun.
I am still working on the schedule for next year. Currently, this is what I am thinking:
Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings:
- 5:30 AM New Testament Greek. We will continue reading this: https://archive.org/details/newtestamentgree00mach_0/page/122
- 6:00 AM Spanish: The book is available free here: https://archive.org/details/pocopocoelementa00hallrich/page/n4
- 6:30 AM French: To get the book (only available as a PDF), go here: https://dwanethomas.com/french-resources/
- 7:00 AM Italian: To get the book (only available as a PDF), go here: https://dwanethomas.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Litaliano-secondo-il-metodo-natura.pdf
- 9:00 am Henle 3: To purchase the book, click: Third Year Latin
- 10:00 am Henle 2: To purchase the book, click: Second Year Latin
- 11:00 am Henle 1: To purchase the book, click: First Year Latin.
(As for Henle Latin 1, I hope to be done with the book as I will continue teaching it over the summer. In that case, I will replace First Year Latin with Lingua Latina.)
No worries. You don’t have to attend the live classes. I know they are early in the morning. My mind is clearest early in the morning. I have found that is the best time to teach.
Fortunately, I record every class I teach, and I only take them down if I am updating them. Currently, there are 17 classes with close to 2,000 videos all arranged by units.
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. There are also forums for each class. In the forums students can interact with each other and ask questions.
I hope you guys are having a great Saturday!
