I received this question:
I’m a Classical Conversations parent and am excited to see that you’ll offer Henle 1 live this year. I read somewhere on your site that it will “pick up where we left off”. Will the class not start at the beginning of the Henle 1 book this year (in Sept)? My girls are in Challenge B, so that covers Lessons 1-24 this year. I was hoping to use your class as a great companion to it. Thanks!
Here is my reply:
Here is what I was thinking….
There are 467 exercises in First Year Latin by Robert Henle. There is no way in a school year to get to them all. Impossible. So, a few years ago, I stopped taking recorded classes down. The exercises began accumulating. Now, out of the 467 exercises, 137 are up on my site. Students can access them at any time.
There are still 330 exercises to go.
This year, I thought we would just pick up in chapter 3 this year and continue on. However, there have been too many emails like yours. So, once again, I am going to start the book over this year. That is what will happen on Tuesdays. I will go over the grammar of each chapter with the students.
In the early mornings, Mondays – Saturdays, I am taking whoever wants through First and Second year Latin. We meet a half hour a day, six days a week. I suspect it’s going to take longer than a year to get through the exercises in both books.
For Second and Third year Latin, we are going to pick up where we left off last year. We are going to continue to plow through the thousands of sentences Mr. Henle provides.
Students are welcome to come to every class I teach, of course. This means you are welcome to come to First Year Latin on Tuesdays. But, you are also welcome to come to the early morning Henle classes, as well.
I hope this all makes sense.
Let me know if you need more help!
