Visual Latin, online class, or both?

I received this inquiry:

I want to sign my son up for Latin I-Visual Latin and am a little confused about what to order.  Do I need the DVD set, Visual Latin as well as the on-line class?  If I am reading correctly that is what is included in the price of the class?  Sorry to be so unsure, this is somewhat new to me!  Thank you very much for your assistance!

Here is my reply:

Visual Latin is recommended, not necessarily required.  I will be explaining the grammar of Latin in class, but the explanation will likely be brief.  Students who watch Visual Latin during the week, will be better prepared for the advanced nature of the online class.  Again, it’s recommended, but not required.

On the other hand, Visual Latin is a stand-alone Latin course. You do not need to join the online class. The online class is for students who want to quickly read at an advanced level.

Let me know if you have any more questions. Have a great day!
