    I totally agree. And I think for high school, it's a perfectly fine pace that won't be too stressful. I thought Third Form would kill us in 6th grade --- I think we would have benefited from another year of maturity.

    I agree with Enigma. If you don't have Latin zealots on your hands then a Form-per-year pace will do just fine. If they grow more interested then the Online Academy is a way to go deeper while keeping the pace steady. You never know who will catch fire and who will simply plod along per your requirements. Either way, they are getting their Latin and that's a wonderful and rare thing for students.

    I am not sure how deep he wants to go, but I am requiring it until graduation...One of my boys might graduate in 4 years, and the other in 5 years - or they both might graduate in 5 years...I know, it is kind of strange ????

    MPOA is a great resource if you can afford it. Otherwise, using the homeschool plans, I would compress First and Second Forms into grade 9, Third Form in grade 10, Fourth Form/Henle 1 in grade 11, and Henle 2/Caesar in grade 12. Third Form was the hardest in my opinion. Have your student recite and drill every day. My oldest had a lot of trouble because I didn't insist on this. The DVDs were helpful to review tricky concepts too.

    Are you open to online classes at some point? Many use Henle starting in high school. I think the online academy has students who start in first form in 9th take an accelerated second form class over the summer so they can work in a translation course before graduation. Even if you don’t use a class at first, it is helpful to keep it in the back of your mind for the future. Third and Fourth form can be pretty daunting for self study.

    started a topic Latin Sequence Starting with First Form in 9th

    Latin Sequence Starting with First Form in 9th

    Hello Everyone...

    What is a good suggested sequence for Latin if your student is doing First Form in the 9th grade?...Would you just do 1st - 4th Form over the next four years, or is another sequence suggested?

    Thank you in advance...

    Tahara
