|Comment||Thank you so much! I'm thrilled to find a place to send future questions. I'm actually the homeschool mom of an 8th grader, so my primary accomplishment with my child is to model what learning looks like! You might enjoy to know how we tackle Latin. We learned volumes of pure vocabulary and noun/verb endings up through 6th grade. We also memorized a handful of short passages. All this was done with rote memorization and very little practical application. Then in 7th grade, we go through 1/4 of the Henle 1st Year text (a 9th grade text). In 8th grade we start at the beginning of Henle 1st Year AGAIN and go through half of the book. In 9th grade, we will tackle the entire 9th grade text, but the first half should be a cake-walk! Then in 10th-12th, we go through Henle 2nd Year, 3rd Year, and 4th year. I love Latin so much that when I'm finished with my children, I think I may go to college and seek a degree in Latin! Recently, I have learned that my GRANDMOTHER had college degrees in both Latin and Greek, so I guess it's just in my blood, and I never knew it until the giant was awakened through homeschooling. Your encouragement and assistance has added great value to my life. Thank you!|
