Disclaimer: I am a Visual Latin affiliate so if you buy through my link I do earn a commission. I decided to become an affiliate after using and loving this program for months with my 14, 12, and 10 year old students.
I thought I'd show you a little more about how it works. You pop in a DVD and listen to a lesson. Each lesson includes three parts(grammar, sentences, and reading) and we listen to one part each day. Each part of the lesson takes less than 10 minutes to listen to.
After watching our lesson we head back to the schoolroom to work on our worksheet. Since I will be reusing these later to teach my younger children I like to place the sheets in a page protector and use a dry erase marker to complete them. Plus, I think my children enjoy their work more this way.
I also complete a worksheet to so I can learn along with my children. It really is simple and I think Latin is so interesting. I'm a word person so I love nerding out on where words come from and seeing the origins of common English words in Latin.
I keep all of our worksheets in a binder with two sections, one for the worksheets and one for the answers. You will also receive a vocabulary list to print out which I keep separately for easy reference.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how we use Visual Latin in our homeschool! I need to keep things simple and this program works perfectly for me. Oh, and my 14 year old works on his Latin independently. How easy is that?
*I should also mention that the instructor is a Christian and he uses a Latin Bible for the reading section of each lesson. We are familiar with the Bible stories so it makes it easier and more interesting to translate them. We have translated creation, Cain and Abel, Noah, and a few other stories so far. I also love this aspect of Visual Latin because it brings something we know about into Latin and gives it more meaning for us.*
Here is the review I wrote for TOS Homeschool Crew which is how I learned about Visual Latin in the first place.
