You will be able to watch classes later.
I record every class I teach, and I only take them down if I am updating them. Currently, there are around 2,000 videos all arranged by units. In other words, you could go from beginning Latin to advanced Latin easily on my site. 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. Here is the tentative schedule for the Fall:
Notice: This class is taught by one of my college-aged daughters. Lydia has been studying French since 2016 and her pronunciation is so much better than mine. She brings the energy of youth and the eagerness to share a language she loves. To order physical copies of the book, simply click on the volume you need: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3. This class is happening right now. She is already teaching. They just started chapter 3 today. Feel free to jump in. All classes are recorded, so if you are jumping in late, you could easily go back and watch the first few chapters.
Second Year Latin by Robert Henle • 6:00 am Central Time Zone
Join me as we work our way through all of the exercises in Second Year Latin by Robert Henle. I do my best to make the boring Henle series endurable. Endurable is the best I can do. After we finish Second Year Latin, I intend to teach Third Year Latin and Fourth Year Latin by Robert Henle. It will take years. If you don’t want to wait around, and if you really want to learn Latin, and if you don’t want to be bored out of your mind, do yourself a favor. Switch to Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.
Third Year Latin by Robert Henle • 6:30 am Central Time Zone
C.S. Lewis, in his book Surprised by Joy, called Cicero, “the great bore.” Well, Cicero certainly doesn’t let C.S. Lewis down. This book is boring. Plain and simple. And, yet, enough of you have asked about it. I am planning on taking anyone through it who wants to go through it. Or, anyone who has to go through it. If there is any way out of this book, take it. If you don’t want to be bored out of your mind, do yourself a favor. Switch to Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg. I will try to make Third Year Latin by Robert Henle interesting, but I probably will not be able to, no matter how hard I try.
Notice: I am not fluent in Spanish. We will be learning together. There will be many references to Latin. Though knowledge of Latin will help, it is not required for this course. This book is a much more extensive version of Poco o Poco. If you want a physical copy, simply click here: https://amzn.to/2yXAkzn.
