    One more question: Is he getting the meaning correct but the details wrong?
    (E.G. Does he properly identify the word as 'table' but misses that is a direct object in the sentence? Or does he get the correct verb meaning but not the tense?)

    Do you notice a difference between his ability with Latin to English and English to Latin translations? The latter is much more difficult.
    How is he with Latin to English?

    Stuck on Second Form Latin

    Hello. I apologize if this question has been asked before, but I'm not even sure what to search for.

    My 8th-grade son is working through Second Form Latin. He seems to understand the Word Study and Grammar and Declension sections, does pretty well on Form Drills, but struggles on the Translations. When I tell him the correct translation, he usually gets it. He is finishing Lesson Nine.

    I have no background in Latin so I'm not sure how to help him. The only thing that I can think of is to select some examples and have him translate them again. I don't want him to move on until he "gets it." Any ideas? Thanks!
Working...
