    I just wanted to let you know how amazingly awesome you are!!! I tutored Essentials for a few years and now have directed Challenge for 2. I have told all the families in my community about your Latin resources. They will be a tremendous help for our students who struggle with Latin or finde some of the curriculum difficult to interpret. Thank you Thank you thank you!!!

      Thank you! It has all come from my own personal struggle with learning along with my son. I’ll keep making more! Thanks for sharing.

    I was wondering if you decline and conjugate every single vocabulary word on the charts. If you do, what does your daily schedule look like? 2 Nouns, 2 Adjectives, 2 Verbs a day? I’m a teeny bit confused. 🙂 Love the charts!

    • Betsy on March 17, 2016 at 4:49 pm

      I’d start with one idea at a time and build from there. We’ll decline 1st declension nouns until we’ve mastered it, and then move on to 2nd declension. We use the charts to complement whatever concept we are studying at the time. It’s a very flexible thing!

    Dear Betsy,
    A month or so ago I purchased, for $8 your “Latin Verb” package, I thought I had downloaded it, but I cannot find it any where. How do I get that again? I’ve looked through all my e-mails even and I can’t find it from you.
    Thank you,
    Natalie

      I just resent the email. Let me know if you still have any trouble downloading!

    I just signed up for the Latin with Andy (3-month) subscription. How do we cancel at the end of the 3 months? I didn’t see any option in my account settings. Thanks.

    You refer a couple times to a song you sing for nouns (or declensions–can’t remember exactly which). I was wondering if you’d be willing to share the song? I’m in the process of learning latin and anything that would help would be appreciated.
    Love your website!! Lots of great resources 🙂

      Andy has learned the songs through Classical Conversations Foundations memory work. If you don’t have access to those, I have a student who used this song to learn all of the declensions: https://youtu.be/tLwcxlIYcSw

    Hi Betsy,
    How do we correct the exercises on each of the worksheets? I thought it was from the Henle answer key, but just realized it was not the same…I guess that would be a conflict. Please help!!
    BTW, love all the printables! It has made Latin much more organized and less chaotic!

    Thanks,
    Renee

      Renee,

      You are correct, the video companion guide worksheets are only for Andy’s videos. You should be able to look at the very end of Andy’s video for that exercise and see the answer. The answer key is the video! Andy walks through everything on the worksheet, so if it looks like his when you’re done, then you’re good to go! So glad the printables have helped. We needed them too! 🙂

    Betsy, on your Challenge Progress Tracker, how do you use them in class when tutoring? Do you take them up and have them in front of you and take notes in them? I am not sure how they would be notes in their book that they take home with them. Do you have coorporation with parents for fill out the at-home section?
    Do you look at that section each week? Also, how you you use the tutor/peers section in class? Since the CC portal does not provide challenge assignment trackers this year, have you already created your own or are you no longer using those for in class. I am directing and need a quicker and better way to keep track of progress. Thanks.

    • Betsy on January 12, 2019 at 2:37 pm

      In class, I would just use them when students were presenting. That way I could make the usual notes I would take in their notebook for them to take home. I have not found a good way to track completed assignments from the class without taking up too much of our valuable discussion time in class. I’ve pretty much gone with the “keeping short accounts” method and let parents know ASAP if a student didn’t come prepared overall for class or is seeming lost in a subject. It is a constant challenge to keep up communication, but I keep trying! Hope this helps!

    I just purchased these documents and cannot download them. I guess I lost the link. Can you send me another link?

    • Betsy on February 16, 2019 at 2:37 pm

      I see you registered for the yearly membership. If you are able to log in to Latin with Andy, just go to the tab called Printables and you should see all the documents there.

    Besty,
    I’m working through Lesson 9 and Andy mentioned an “answer key.” I didn’t realize that there is one. Where can I find it?
    Thanks

      Hi there! As of right now, we do not have an answer key to go along with the video companion guides. The answers to the video companion guides are the videos themselves, in which I work through the given examples. I believe the answer key I referenced was the Henle answer key. There are several answer keys to go along with Henle. My favorite is the answer key in the study guide that Memoria Press published. Sorry for any inconvenience!

    Hi!
    I am tutoring Classical Conversations Ch. 3 this year.. is there ANY chance that Andy might finish his videos to include the rest of Henle 2 translations of Cesar or Henle 3 Cicero translations? That would be so wonderful!!!

    • Betsy on September 14, 2020 at 9:53 am

      My husband is tutoring Challenge 3 this year as well! Yes, the translations are challenging. Andy has created fun little videos about the Helvetian drive to the west on YouTube (https://youtu.be/Zh2EJoLeHSY), but no official translations. He decided instead to create two stories of his own for translation practice. They are at the very bottom of the Printables page. One is an easy translation of the book of Jonah, and the other is a story he wrote himself! It’s called Maxima Vipera. Both include a “literal” translation, a more poetic or smooth translation, and all the vocabulary and helps a student might need. He noticed in his own journey that going from the Henle exercises to Cicero was a big jump, and that he would have liked something easier to practice on first. I hope that helps!
