Latin with Andy Content
Are there answer keys for the worksheets?
First of all, the worksheets are video companion guides. This means that their purpose is to help your student follow along with Andy. He will work through the questions on the sheets. So really their main purpose is so that you don't have to struggle to read Andy's handwriting on the board. Additionally they can be used later as a reference tool as you work through the Henle text.
If you want to quickly check you're student's work, hop on the Latin with Andy site, click on a video, and click somewhere near the end of the progress bar. Pause the video and see if the work on Andy's board looks similar to what your student has filled in.
Speaking of Henle, why aren't the video lessons matching up with my book? Do I have a different edition than Andy?
Andy has worked to create examples that go over the same concepts presented in the Henle book without doing your work for you. The purpose is to demonstrate what the exercise is asking of the student. Also, this helps honor copyright issues that might arise if he just took all of the examples directly from the text. You'll see different vocabulary words, but you don't have to memorize anything extra as the new words will be listed on the companion guide.
You're always welcome to come ask specific questions about an exercise in Henle in the Latin with Andy Facebook group.
Does Latin with Andy replace the Henle text?
No. The video companion guides do not provide enough practice for a student to truly master the concepts presented. The goal is to give students confidence to complete their exercises correctly and efficiently. Andy keeps his videos short so that you'll have plenty of time to work on further exercises.
What pronunciation do you use?
We use the Classical system (also referred to as the Roman system - grammar #1018). While we aim to be as consistent as possible, this is a dead language and pronunciation is not as important as writing the forms correctly.
Is the site down?
If you're getting a message like this: "The webpage at https://player.vimeo.com/video/223808430 might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address" you may have a restriction on your browser that's blocking your access. Typically, families that use a Disney Circle to monitor their family's internet access receive this message. You'll need to adjust your settings through your internet restrictions tool to allow your students to see the videos. Since they're hosted on Vimeo, sometimes these types of tools think that the videos are questionable. I can guarantee that these are clean and safe for the whole family!
If the site is actually down, you won't be able to load anything! We'll work to get it back up ASAP.
I've just registered and every time I click something, it asks me to register again. Do I have to register more than once?
No! Occasionally there is a glitch in the system that doesn't connect your payment to your account in Latin with Andy. If this happens, check to see that you've been charged first. If you have, send me an e-mail and we'll get your account fixed up! Sorry in advance (this doesn't happen too often).
Can I change my profile picture?
At this time, the only thing you can adjust on your profile is your password. My goal in restricting the profile settings is to help limit the distractions that students might encounter when they enter the WordPress dashboard...they might never find their way back!

I tried to sign up and received a message saying that DPRP wasn’t enable fo this sight. What does this mean?
I’ve only had a couple of customers experience that when trying to pay with PayPal. You can either try to check out with the other payment method, Stripe, or I can send you an invoice through PayPal and set up your account manually. Let me know if you’d like me to do that!
I have gotten this same error. Can you please send me an invoice?
I just sent you the invoice!
Our internet is slow. Are your lessons stream only or are they available on DVD or download?
Sorry Jennifer, our videos are only available streaming.
Are the videos supposed to work on a Mac?
Yes! If you can’t see them, check to see if you have a pop up blocker, or if you have a Disney Circle, that tends to block the videos.
Yes, my son has a Mac and he just got it about two weeks ago.
First, love what you guys have done! Such a blessing. Second, I was curious if there are any vocabulary Flashcard printouts for Henle 2? Or can you let me know where I may find them.
I don’t have those made yet, but I’ll let everyone know when they are available!!
what is the struggle is real. struggle well. In latin
Andy says: Luctatio est sincera. Luctare bene.
Do i have to use stripe or paypal to pay?
You can use your credit card on either one, but right now, those are the only two options.
Would this be helpful in my son is in Challenge A for CC?
Absolutely. This resource was created specifically for students like him. Latin is a challenging subject. Our Challenge A daughter has loved watching her brother, but it has also helped her understand the concepts much better. We have heard from many other Challenge A families that they have grown in their skills in Latin as a result of the videos. Andy describes the concept for every exercise in the Henle 1 and 2 book. Students simply go to the video of the exercise they are working on in the Henle book, watch the 3-5 minute video and find they have much more confidence when they go back to the Henle book to do the exercises for themselves! Let us know if you have any further questions. 🙂
Hi! I just registered and I am very excited about this resource! I just want to confirm that I can access the videos for a year if I go ahead and cancel my membership on the section linked to above. There is a warning that it will cancel my membership. I want to keep it, I just don’t want automatic renewal. Thanks so much!
Yes! You can cancel at any time and retain access throughout the year (or 3 months if you end up doing quarterly). Thanks!
Hello, I just joined. I saw under the printable that the quizzes can be used by teachers in small classrooms, correct? However, we are not suppose to use the worksheets?
Seeking clarification. I am a CC director. Thank you!
Is there a way to access the Facebook content without actually logging in to Facebook. I REALLY don’t like being on Facebook at all. Any suggestions???
I understand the frustration there. If you have questions, you can just email Andy at latinwithandy (at) gmail (dot) com. He’d be happy to offer support that way outside of Facebook.
My question has to do with third declensions. We learned in cycle 1 that the 3rd declension nominative was -various. It is also on the Trivium Table that the Nominative is -various. However, in Henle, the third declension nominative singular is not -various. it’s -lex. ?? I’m confused.
The third declension is just a tricky one. Lex is given as an example, but every word that belongs to the third declension has a unique nominative singular form: pax, pacis – peace; miles, militis – soldier; gens, gentis – tribe; etc. Andy explains it in a basic way here: https://youtu.be/dWFs-qtd8FM Since there isn’t a consistent ending, CC uses the word “various” as a place holder to remind you that there are a variety of options for that first ending I the third declension.
I think I’m over-complicating things! My son just started Challenge A and we are trying to get up to speed with LWA. What do I need to print out as a companion to your videos my my son as he watches them? I ended up finding two different sets of printables for Unit 1, each is separated by Lesson and then each lesson has 6 days. I can’t tell when you would use one set vs. the other. Then, I found a video companion printable, Lesson 1: The First Declension, and another sheet entitled 1st Declension practice! What do we need just to follow the videos and then go do our Henle assignments? Thanks!
I think you found the code breakers worksheets. Those are designed to go with the beginner Latin student videos. The worksheets you want are on the Printables page under the “Henle 1” heading.
I’m sorry if I missed this somewhere, but does Andy have teaching videos for Henle Latin 2?
Yes! If you go to the home page and scroll down past the welcome video, you will see two boxes. The light blue one on the right is like the portal entrance to Henle 2.
My son is in 9th grade and I need to start keeping records of grades. Do you provide tests with the subscription? Could I buy the tests only? Thank you!
There are tests for principle parts, as well as Henle 1 and 2 vocabulary. If you are doing Henle, you can also have him do exercises for grades, by utilizing the Henle Answer Key. I hope that helps!
Sorry if you answered this question above, but I am not finding it. How far through Henle are Andy’s videos right now? We are in the middle of Challenge One and I feel we are going to need more help second semester.
We have videos through Henle 2! There is a link on the home page to the Henle 2 videos. Blessings!
The Code Breakers guide is awesome! I see it currently goes through lesson 4 or 5. Is this a work in progress? And will future lessons be added to complete all the unites for both Henle 1 and Henle 2?
Thanks for the encouragement! Code Breakers is a creation separate from Henle. It is our way to help students dip their toe into Latin before jumping into Henle. Our videos in Latin with Andy, however, go with Henle and cover every exercise, lesson, and unit covered in both Henle 1 and Henle 2. Latin with Andy videos start back in exercise 1. Let me know if you have more questions!
We love you Andy! My son really enjoys it.
Thankyou for all of your support!
Andy’s videos are really helping me in directing Challenge A this year. I used to be able to access the lessons on my phone as well as laptop, but lately when I log in on my phone (Chrome browser), it takes me to the page that says, “Join the LWA Membership Site!” I can choose to Log In, and go round and round, but not access the lessons. Any suggestions?
Updating my Chrome app solved the problem – in case anyone else has this issue! 🙂
Q: about Gift membership. When does the 3 month subscription begin? The day it was bought OR when the recipient begins logging in First time?
The gift membership begins the day it was purchased. Thanks for checking!
How far does Latin with Andy go? My daughter is going into Challenge 2 so she is starting Henle 2. Does Latin with Andy go along with this too?
Yes! Andy covers every exercise in Henle 2, and has even included helps for preparing for Henle 3, which we hope will help carry students through even Challenge 3. There are plenty of printables as well as a FaceBook community where Andy interacts frequently. Thanks for the question!
I just subscribed for my Challenge 1 and Challenge 3 kids and realized that Andy only covers through Henle 2. I was looking through some comments to see if someone has asked about Henle 3 and I found your comment above saying that he “has even included helps for preparing for Henle 3” and where can I find those helps? And thank you those fantastic video helps! I am excited to see my Challenge kids using Andy’s videos this year!
Thanks for asking – I’m so glad you have found our videos helpful! Unfortunately, I do not have any videos covering Henle 3. However, most of the concepts that are covered in Henle 3 are actually reviews of concepts that are in Henle 2 (except for the last few lessons). The goal of Henle 3 is to dive deeper into actual Latin texts – in this case, Cicero! My recommendation for your student would be to focus on Cicero’s writings and refer to the answer key frequently, asking careful questions about why and how the answer key translates the way they do. Encourage your Challenge 3 student to be a detective and pay close attention to the way the answer key translates artistically.
Let me know if you have more questions! Good luck and happy translating!
The resources on this site are excellent! One suggestion is to include a printable answer key (accessible to the teacher) for the exercises. I know the answers are available with the discussion in video format, but the videos are not always necessary and sometimes have technical issues loading. For these reasons and the time savings, alone, the practicality of a printable answer key would take this site from great to really great! Thank you ♥
Hi, CAn you tell me if the subscription includes the worksheets for Code Breakers? Thank you!
Yes it does! Thanks for checking!
We are halfway through semester 1 of Ch.3, looking toward semester 2 – do you have any helps for the work in Henle 3?
Good question! By the time you make it to Henle three, many of the concepts presented are review from previous Henle books. We do not have any helps for Henle three, but don’t worry – the pace recommended in the guide begins to slow down. And at this point, your student will be able to handle the Latin on their own. However, don’t take this to mean that I think your student should be a Latin genius by now. It is common (even for me) to struggle through translations and to mess up a lot. But don’t be afraid to mess up. Just make sure to use the answer key often and learn from mistakes. If a concept is particularly confusing, don’t be afraid to change up the pace from what the guide suggests and go back to previous Henle books, lessons, and my videos, to be sure the concept is understood. It’s better to spend extra time making sure verb endings are memorized than to try and fit in another new concept that will be hard to understand because the original verb endings weren’t memorized.
In essence, help your student know that if they do what they can, and learn from their mistakes, the best possible result will be achieved, whether they finished what the guide said to do or not. You guys got this! Good luck!
Thank you for this resource. Does every lesson have vocabulary videos?
Andy does not have vocabulary videos for every lesson, but he is working on more. Thanks for checking!
Where are the code breaker videos?
You can find the videos for free either on Youtube (https://youtu.be/ujq-L00SYlY) or on our website (https://familystyleschooling.com/code-breakers/). There is a free companion guide that goes with it, plus additional supplemental materials for purchase. All CodeBreaker videos, guides and materials are included with the Latin with Andy membership. Thanks!
Will you please share the dimensions of the latin vocabulary cards, the lines printed too faintly for me to use as a guide( I messed up MANY and they are all varying sizes with my efforts) Office max will laser cut them with exact dimensions per card. Thank you for all that you do, it is so appreciated!!
Sorry for the troubles! The flashcards should be 1-1/2″ x 1-11/16″ (or 1.5″ x 3.6875″). I hope that helps!
Does his lessons go all the way through Challenge I or the Henle 1 text?
Yes! There are over 500 videos – one video for every exercise in both the Henle 1 and Henle 2 books. We hope the resources we provide help students navigate all the way through Challenge 3.
Hi! Does Latin with Andy provide a schedule for completing Henle 1, similar to what is proved with Code Breakers? If so, may I ask how many weeks it takes to complete?
Great question! Unfortunately, we don’t have a schedule for completing Henle 1. My recommendation is to start by following CC’s schedule and then modify it to fit your student. You know your student best – what they are capable of and how they work. If you have questions along the way, I’ll be here to answer them! Good luck!
Is there a video somewhere where Andy helps with pronunciation? I can’t seem to find one. Also, none of the links seem to work on the FAQ page. How do we find the answers to the FAQs?
Hey there! I have some videos on Youtube covering Henle vocabulary, through lesson 24, which might help with pronunciation! Also, the links to the FAQ sections are in the headers themselves, but since the page is continuous, you should be able to find answers to all of the questions listed by scrolling a bit down the page. Hope this helps!
I noticed what I think might be a mistake on the lesson 17 printable. On the Passive voice chart for Laudo, it says the perfect stem we should use is laudāv-, but I am wondering if it should say laudāt- ?? Please clarify. Thank you so much!
Hey there! Sorry for any confusion! That is a good point since both stems refer to a version of the perfect tense. The area at the top of these sheets was intended to help give the most basic elements of the verb, including the two most commonly used stems of the verb, which are the present active stem and the perfect active stem. But there are several other stems of verbs than even these (the gerund stem is “laudand-“! If it helps you more to put the stem of the 4th principal part for quick reference, go for it!
Hi! I am having to download and sign into google for henle year 1 lessons 21-22. It seems to not know I am a user. Thanks for the help!
Thanks for letting us know! We’d love to help you out. Try logging in with a different browser and see if that changes anything. If you’re still having trouble, send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you from there. Thanks for your patience!
How far into challenge Latin does Andy go with this site?
The Latin with Andy resource includes videos for every Lesson and every Exercise for both Henle 1 and 2, which means that all exercises are covered through the Fall semester of Challenge 3. There are many other printables and translation exercises that will help the upper challenge students as well. I hope that helps!
I SO appreciate your material!! Thank you!
I am new to the Code Breakers material this year. Are there printable flashcards for that? Or do my students need to make their own?
Thank you again!
Wonderful! And thanks so much for the encouragement. There are no printable flashcards specifically for Code Breakers, but if you’d like to get a headstart memorizing Henle Latin vocab, we have flashcards for that! Best of luck to you! Let me know if you have any questions!
Hello! I just signed up and am excited to use it with my boys. Can you explain how you tab your latin books? Thanks!
Here’s a post where I share how I set up my materials: https://familystyleschooling.com/2017/07/17/latin-resources/ Hope this helps!
are you apart of latin with andy betsy ?
Yes, my blog Family Style Schooling hosts Latin with Andy. He and I worked together to create everything.
If I sign up for the quarterly membership now, what will I have access to? My child is in Challenge A Week 12 of Classical Conversations.
You will have access to everything! Latin with Andy is set up as a resource library, allowing you to go back and forth to different videos as you please. It is organized around the Henle Latin books (Lessons and Exercises), so it’s easy to find exactly what video you need to watch based on where you are in the Henle book.
