Yes, we use Level 2 in the Latin 3 course! LNM 2 covers all the uses of the subjunctive mood, and all other advanced grammar concepts. The class will be finishing up LNM Level 2 in this year, along with practicing reading passages of unadapted Latin from various classical authors.  Latin For the New Millennium 3 willl be used in our 4th year of Latin.  We believe that plenty of practice using the advanced Latin concepts is the best way to prepare a student for excellent work in AP Latin.

How Do the Online Courses Work?

Our courses meet once or twice a week via WizIq, an online, virtual classroom in which teachers and student can interact in real time. The teacher speaks into a microphone, shows video clips, draws on the "blackboard," puts up pictures, charts, etc. Students can respond with a question or a comment by "raising their hand" and either typing into a chat box or speaking aloud. Students may also "come to the blackboard" to participate in exercises.

In addition to live interaction, our online courses include graded assignments, homework, and a final grade suitable for a high school transcript. Teachers will usually email worksheets, tests, and other assignments to students, who will complete them on their honor. Outside of class, teachers can be reached by phone or email. The sessions are usually recorded and available to the student for review.
