    Latin Intensive for Adults

    Hello. I am (with great trepidation) about to begin 2nd Form with my 12 yo, who has a far greater grasp on 1st Form than I do. (Thank you for such great teacher's manuals. When I can't explain well enough, I just have her consult the manual or the answer keys. She has learned so much from correcting her own work.) My question is, would it be possible to audit the Second Form Intensive classes, making them available to be viewed (perhaps repeatedly) whenever necessary? Thank you.

    3 bonus students: nephew 13 and twins 8 (SC)
    Graduated:
    DS 29 Working on Master's in Architecture
    DD 20 my right hand: knits incredible things
    Class of '21:
    DD 23, Summa Cum Laude (Self-designed major psych/ communications)
    DS 22 Magna Cum Laude (Philosophy/Music dual major)
    (proof a classical education at home can yield amazing results)

    Sabrina,
    Hello! There is currently an asynchronous option already included! How long would you want access to the recordings? I'm not sure how long they are available into the future as part of the class fee. An official response will have to clear that up.

      That was so quick! Thank you. So I could buy the course and then NOT go to class - but watch when I can?

        I'm looking at the forum while I wait for Christmas...I mean, my youngest to complete his Latina Christiana workbook. 😆

        Yes, you can enroll and then watch on your schedule. I like this option because then you also have access to the online quizzes and tests. These give quick feedback and help you know you're getting it for sure.

        I do not know know if they expire at some point though.

          Thank you, Jessica. This will help so much. I feel like this is my last chance to get through Latin alongside my student - they always take off without me. My daughter patted me on the shoulder after I told her I didn't feel quite ready to begin 2nd Form and said, "Don't worry, Mom ... I'll help you."

            That former micro-premie is coming on strong! I love it.

              There was a day when I stood by her bedside, as she received baptism while on life support, the pastor and I reciting the Lord's Prayer, in a room filled with so many critically ill infants. I remember reflecting on the words, Thy Will, be done ... and now, she can recite those very words in Latin. His Will has been to bless me with her, a miracle, indeed. Thank you for your help. Hope you have a wonderful school year.

                  As an official response, we do not prefer students taking the class asynchronously (they lose the opportunity for immediate feedback and teacher help), but in certain cases we approve it. In this case it would be fine.

                  However, I do need to point out a couple things:
                  1. You will need to inform the teacher so that they do not work to try to inform you of absence, etc.
                  2. Our quizzes do close at particular times and we expect students to keep up with that, even if they are asynchronous students. If that is not something you can do, the self-paced options may be a better, less-robust fit.

                  Peace,
                  Paul

                    And I just realized you were asking about the adult class. We are much more flexible in that regard and assessments are optional, so go for it!

                      Sabrina,

                      I understand the trepidation well! I took the SFL class this past summer but had not really mastered FFL. I was able to attend the live classes and be able to participate all the while really only going back and doing the FFL lessons. I was pretty solid on the 1st conjugation verbs, and 1st and 2nd declension nouns. The whole first unit is on nouns, so you could between now and the first class brush up on the endings for 3rd, 4th and 5th declension before the first class. I did have the teacher's manual sitting with me during the class, so I was able to participate more fully. Even though I was really only working on FFL during the summer, I felt it was a benefit to attend the live SFL class. I am, however, repeating it because I felt the live experience worth the cost. I could just re-watch the videos, but find it to be of great value to repeat it. I know I am not the first to repeat. I just know myself and know I am more likely to "keep studying" with a tiny bit of pressure of the live class.
