I received this question:
So what do you recommend after we have completed Latin 2??
Here is my reply:
Ah. What a question.

There really are two directions you could go. You stick with the ancient past. You could go deeper into Latin. If you choose this route, I recommend Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg. There is nothing like it. If you tackle it and get if you find yourself stuck, I teach the book live every year.
Or, here is the other direction. You could abandon the ancient past. You could learn a modern language. I highly recommend Italian. After Latin, it’s a lot of fun. Well, I think it is, anyway.
If you go with a modern language, start with DuoLingo. It is free, pretty fun, and unbelievably effective. I am using it to teach myself Italian and Greek these days. I love it.
