Episode 60: Homeschool Latin and Language Learning | Dwane Thomas
By: Jamie Gaddy
Join Jamie and Dwane as they talk about “why” and “how” to learn Latin in your homeschool, and discover some practical pointers for learning other languages. We discuss that you don’t have to have a fancy language curriculum to learn a foreign language! For homeschoolers of all ages and methods.
Dwane notes -I misquoted Dorothy Sayers. It wasn’t in The Lost Tools of Learning. She suggested Latin students start with the Vulgate (the Bible in Latin) and the easier Medieval writers here in this essay: https://www.memoriapress.com/articles/greatest-single-defect-my-own-latin-education/
Dwane’s 3 basic suggestions for a homeschool language study:
- Get a grammar book for the language you want to study. Don’t forget to read it!)
- Use Duolingo to learn and practice. (Because it’s just really fun!)
- Watch cartoons and TV shows in the language you are studying. (Practical application!)
