I received this question:

Hi, confused over the statement for Lingua Latina, where it says ‘postponed til we finish Henle Latin’.  Why on earth would finishing Henle Latin be a precursor to starting Lingua Latina?  I thought Lingua Latina stood on its own as the preferred method of learning Latin and we would just start our 13 year old on that in the Fall.

Here is my reply:

Good morning! 

90% of my Latin students are in Classical Conversations and are required to read First Year Latin by Robert Henle.  That recommendation is only for them.  I recommend that book to absolutely no one else.  Forget Henle Latin if you aren’t required to read it.  Go with Lingua Latina.

Hope you are having a great day!
