Well… Happy New Year, everyone!
I know I haven’t posted at all in 2020.
I haven’t because… reasons. How do I put this? I just didn’t start the new year with the motivation I usually have at the beginning of the year.
Okay. To the point.
Here is where we are in the books right now.
All classes are back on. There is no planned Spring Break. I am planning to teach until May 10, or so. That’s the rest of the year in a nutshell.
First Year Latin by Robert Henle
In the early morning class, we are working our way through the exercises. We have reached lesson 300.
In the upcoming Tuesday class, we will learn the grammar from chapter 24.
Second Year Latin by Robert Robert Henle
In the Thursday class, we will continue reading from Ceasar’s Gallic Wars. We are in the section, “All Gaul in Arms”. Last night, I watched a super helpful overview of the Gallic Wars. If you are into this stuff, here you go:
Third Year Latin by Robert Henle
We continue to plod along through this very difficult book. We will tackle the Latin to English exercises for the rest of the year.
If you want help reading through the difficult orations of Cicero, those sections of the book are already up on my site.
Lingua Latina 1 by Hans Ørberg
Thursday, January 23, we will continue to work our way through the “Pensum” exercises at the end of each chapter. We start chapter 28 on the 23rd.
Lingua Latina 2 by Hans Ørberg
Thursday, January 23, we will continue to work our way through the “Pensum” exercises at the end of each chapter. We start chapter 8 on the 23rd.
Exercitia Latina by Hans Ørberg
Tuesday – Saturday mornings. We are working our way through all of the exercises in this book. It’s going to take a long time. Months. Maybe years. You are all welcome to join if you like. We meet mornings at 6 AM Central Time Zone. We are currently in chapter 8. To join, click on the link in the forums: https://dwanethomas.com/forums-lingua-latina/
By the way, if you want to read the Lingua Latina chapters before class on Thursdays, you can. Those classes are already up on my site.
We are now in chapter 9. No test for this chapter, yet. If you need work graded, just post answers to exercise B in the forums. Working on tests a lot these days. Should be uploading more in the next few days. I am focusing on tests this next semester.
We continue on in chapter 13. No test for this chapter, yet. If you need work graded, just post answers the “Questionario” at the end of every chapter. Post your answers in the forums. Working on tests a lot these days. Should be uploading more in the next few days. I am focusing on tests this next semester.
If you miss a class, it doesn’t matter.
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.
I hope you are having a very happy Friday afternoon!
