Frequently Asked Visual Latin Questions

There are always some basic Visual Latin questions we often hear. We’ve tried to pull all of them together in one place so you don’t have to go hunting about. (Or so we hope…)

What age is Visual Latin for?
10 and up. Kids need to be able to read, but other than that, elementary kids love it, middle school kids love it, high school kids love it, college kids… you get the point.

How is everything sequenced out?  In other words, what’s a full year of Latin look like?
Visual Latin has two sections to it: Latin 1 and Latin 2. Each is intended to be taught in a single school year (although you can certainly speed up or slow down as you desire).  Both sections have 30 classes in each, which correlates to about 1 class a week.

Is Visual Latin good for high school credit?
In terms of the material it covers,  Visual Latin Latin 1 (Lessons 1-30) and Latin 2 (Lessons 31-60) are each good for one high school foreign language credit (2 credits total). By itself, however, it will not provide a full 150 hours of work. Some parents are less concerned about this, but others may want to provide extra supporting materials for upper level high school students. For those who do, we recommend supplementing Latin 1 with Lingua Latina per se Illustrata. (The older version of LL without color is the same text and perfectly acceptable.)  We have created a free Visual Latin/Lingua Latina Teaching Guide that you can use to match them together over a two-year period.  [Note that Lingua Latina is a unique Latin only, college-level book. Visual Latin has been modeled on this book, and in terms of content, teaches exactly the same things.]

    We have been doing Henle for a couple years. We got lost when verbs got complicated. We pressed in, got outside help, and still ended up confused. I didn’t feel like my kids were ready for Dwane’s Henle course and we were a bit burnt out on it anyway so we made the switch to Visual Latin. I love so many more things about it than I thought I would. (And so does my student) Small things like larger text in the exercises. Light things like jokes and fun. Deep things like learning vocab that is edifying (instead of dead bodies in the river in Henle). And academic things like continual review. I can’t say thank you enough.

    As a new comer to Latin, i started out obviously knowing nothing. Thanks to this course, i have found it quite easy to understand the new information which is rather tricky. With my group we are learning from the Henely first year Latin. That book was very confusing. Thanks to this course, everything makes much more sense.
