I received this inquiry:
How work much is assigned from Lingua Latina? Does this workload apply to both Levels 1 & 2? How quickly are assignments returned to students? Can a family switch from grading to no grading or vice versa, assuming that slots for grading are still open at that point in time?
Here is my reply:
As for Lingua Latina,level one students will be in class with me for at least one hour a week. Many of my students find that it is also helpful to go watch some of the extra videos that are on my site. This, of course, adds more time. Then, there is the reading Area students are expected to read for roughly a half hour a day. Naturally, some students will spend more time reading, some less.
There are 34 chapters in the book. 35 actually, but we don’t read the last one in class. Since I spread the book out over two years, this comes out to about one chapter every two weeks. After chapter 25, or so, we read one chapter every three weeks. The book becomes incredibly difficult at that point. This means, that has the children read, they are re-reading much of their assignments. For example, if a student is reading chapter 6 over the course of two weeks, there is a high possibility that this student will end up reading chapter 6, two or three times. I find that repetitive reading in language is highly beneficial.

That’s a pretty long answer, I know. It comes to this, each student is different, and will spend different amounts of time on the homework. However, I am assuming that most students are spending about an hour and a day on Latin if they are in Lingua Latina.
As for switching from grading to now grading, that is actually pretty simple. I would just refund to you the grading tuition. If you’re going the other direction (and, yes there is still room), it’s a little trickier. My website does not make it easy.
