    Yes, it is happening. Details and registration will be posted soon.

        AH! I see now on the "course" drop down menu there is an "adult" selection.

          I just got an e-mail from Mrs. Strickland! The course link works now and it starts in June! .
          I am so glad you posted that! I wasn't planning on taking it because I didn't think there was any way I could get through second form in 6 weeks. Now that it's almost a full 3 months I think I am going to sign up!

            I just finished the Adult SFL class with Magistra Strickland and I can not say enough good things about the class and Susan. I looked forward to class every week and found Susan to be so encouraging. It was definitely hard to keep on top of it but well worth the effort. The most helpful thing is to not get behind on quizzes (same advice we hear our kids' teachers telling them!). SFL wrapped up last month and now I am going back through all my Second Form recitation and grammar rules. I also purchased a second student workbook and am working my way though sections that gave me trouble the first time through or areas where I just need extra practice. In Magistra's word, "TFL will kick you in the teeth if you're not solid on Second Form." I will be ready for Third From this summer! It'd be so fun to be in class with familiar voices!

              Deb H This makes me so excited to think we may be in class together! I'm sitting at 95% commitment. I need to get over the last 5%. This class means shelving my other academic pursuits for the duration, likely. I did that in 2020 to accomplish something specific; it took all year and it felt great. I know from experience that giving my all to something and conquering it by this time next year is a worthy investment. I think I'm up to 96% now. Ha!
              Truly the only thing for me still under consideration is the time-slot. I need to make sure I can give up those mid-afternoons in a really ongoing way. Being only 1.5 hours helps.

                      Thank you! And duh, after I thought about it there isn’t even a Fourth Form class! Ha

                      I’m considering the first form summer class.

                          I'm glad I stumbled upon this post. I *think* we've decided to do Third Form at home this year with help from the steaming videos rather than enroll my rising seventh-grader in MPOA. It would be his first MPOA course and he is concerned about the pace. We have had to take two weeks on some lessons this year for SFL.

                          That being said, I would love to take the adult TFL summer course...if I can keep up with it. I wouldn't say that I've mastered SFL. Would that be a prerequisite to the class?

                          Also, the listing for TFL shows it being offered in two parts, with the second part in the fall. Since I'm on mountain time, I doubt that I could take a class that (for me) meets at 1 p.m. Is the second part of the class teaching the second part of the textbook? Would it be worth just taking the summer course?

                          DS, almost 1! (chewing on books and knocking stuff over)

                            I just finished the adult Second Form class in January. Susan's advice was to work though the SFL Student workbook a second time before starting Third From. In her words, "TF will kick you in the teeth if you haven't mastered SF." This is not to discourage you! I would just recommend you brush up on grammar and vocabulary before TF starts. Susan hasn't released a syllabus yet but I'm assuming the format will be similar to the First Form intensive class that frequently did more than one lesson per class time, some weeks we covered 3 lessons and we always skipped the review lessons. It was a similar format in the Second Form intensive. The fall TFL class will reduce to just Tuesdays at 3:00 EST. I'm on central time and it was a commitment to pause my school day with my kids so I could take a class, but it was worth the sacrifice. My daughter is in TFL this year and with only SF "nearly" under my belt I've been able to help her a bit with sentence translations. It was shocking to me that my SF experience helped me to do this!

                              The second part of the course is teaching the second part of the textbook. Just taking the summer course would get you at least the first half under your belt.

                              As for having mastery of Second Form, we only say that "You should have a working knowledge of the vocabulary and grammar from First Form Latin and Second Form Latin." If you have that, you should be all set.

                              Peace,

                                I think going through second form twice is overkill unless it has been a long time since you completed it. Was she only referring to adults? I made it through a couple of units of second form and decided to start over in a new workbook with my third child, but I don’t feel the need to do it again. We don’t recommend (or maybe she does) that our children do second form twice unless they had some major problem with the book. Third form is long, third form covers a lot of new grammar (some that we don’t deal with in much in English), but I think we seemed to have developed this fear of it that is a bit out of line with reality. A second time through second form isn’t particularly going to help with the different type of pronouns or the subjunctive. I threw my child in who pretty much taught herself second form through most of unit four into the summer second form review class and into third form with Mrs. Strickland and she very well. My Latin hating, translation-phobe son did one and a half units of second form, sort of did Henle units 1-5 and then was put into third form with Dr. Dray and earned an A. He could not have less mastery or motivation going into the class. I don’t really believe that the grading scale necessarily equates to mastery because homework is not submitted (which meant my son did very few translation exercises) and (my pet peeve) that quizzes can be retaken, but the results for both were good, especially comparing how it would have gone with our life circumstances at the time. I will be teaching third form to my third child because I think he will have trouble with the amount of auto grading in third form and the overall pace. I would have mutiny on my hands if I told him he needed to redo second form.
