  1. So delightful! Angela, I love your enthusiasm and the clarity with which you speak. This is the goal of all learning— desire, delight, enlargement of scope and vision, awe, worship. Thank you for sharing !

  2. Thank you & BRING ANGELA BACK!! It was a delight listen and I’m so encouraged to dig deeper into the classics for both myself and my children. It’s been a great Schole Sister’s season! Thanks for all of your hard work.

    1. Wasn’t she wonderful? I’m so glad you loved her as much as I did. ♥ We definitely need to bring her back; you are SO right!

  3. Is Weelock’s Latin the one she was referring to in the podcast? I thought she said something about a Scottish Latin program. Can you clarify? Thanks!

  4. Y’all have made me a bit braver to venture to Latin BUT which do I type of Latin do I choose? We are learning Italian and I do not want to confuse them on pronunciation of their Italian as they learn Latin.
    Thank you!!
    Oh, I also my kids are 7, 10 and 12 … should I teach them all from the same curriculum?

    So excited to start this journey!

    1. I think for the first year especially (but probably for always) you could combine your 10 and 12 year old, and let your 7yo sit in depending on interest? I never start Latin until age 10 unless a child is begging me. 🙂

  5. Such wonderful information! She is a delight. We love Latin! Started with Song School Latin, moved on to GSL, and reviewed it orally a second time. Now working through VL. You’re right. It starts getting “real” about chapter 10. 🙂
    Is there truly no National Junior Classic League chapter in all of California? Do you know of any way for my DD age 12 to get involved with others who love the Latin language and ancient culture?

    1. California is a Latin desert! I KNOW! The only Latin activities I have been able to locate were in San Francisco … but I’m in the Southern San Joaquin, so totally doesn’t work for me. 🙁

      I honestly think the only solution is to start something yourself…

  6. This is awesome. I was in NJCL for Latin in High School and we used Ecce Romani. I totally fell in love with the language for 3 years thanks to my teacher and the curriculum. As a parent it’s fun to think about sharing this with my children too.
