I received this comment:
Hi! My dd started classical conversations this year as a freshman (challenge 1). We had no prior exposure to Latin. We quickly realized we could not keep up with her class that had been doing Henle for 2 years. We started over on our own. We have learned together by the hardest. I am interested in getting her help. She is starting lesson 8 this week. Do you have suggestions? Do you have a course that she can begin this semester? Do you have a suggested online course that might fit our needs? I don’t want her to be frustrated. (Me either for that matter.) 🙂 Any thoughts you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Here is my reply:
Don’t be discouraged. This is a common story. I received emails like this every single week.
I take students through First Year Latin, by Robert Henle every year. Unfortunately, my current class is in chapter 25.
I start classes in August so that we can get through the entire book in one year. It’s a bit ambitious but, I find it’s better to rip the Band-Aid off rapidly.
However, I record everything I teach. Subscribers to my site have access to all of those videos. Currently, I have over 400 videos on my site. Most of them are Latin instruction videos.
In fact, I have many students who use the videos alone to learn Latin. They don’t even attend the live classes.
I would suggest that you subscribe and start slowly going through the Henle videos. If it becomes too difficult, or if you encounter concepts that you don’t understand, you have complete freedom to you know me. Often I will take emails from students and turn them into instructional videos.
Let me know if you need more help!
