This week, a mother emailed me. She was discouraged that she and her son were plodding slowly through Visual Latin. They are feeling behind.
Here is my reply to her email:
I have been studying Greek for almost ten years now… and, still don’t feel I have “gotten” it.
Every year, I have students who just seem to “get it”. I get them going, and they leave me far behind. With a bit of envy, I watch them disappear over the horizon. I wish my mind would grab languages the way theirs seem to.
Nonetheless, I plod on. I plod on because each day I learn a bit more. The small victories add up.
All this to say, take all the time you need with Visual Latin. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t finish within a certain time period. With languages, it really is the journey, not the destination.
Let me know if you need more help!
Hope you are having a great day!
