I love the word free. Even though I'm not an advocate of testing for testing's sake, if you mention the words free and test together, you might just get my attention. Combine them with the word Latin and now I'm on the edge of my seat.
We started using Visual Latin a little over a year ago and immediately loved the systematic, but light-hearted approach that Dwane Thomas brings to learning Latin. Dwane is hilarious in a hopelessly corny, but adorable way.
My oldest polished off Latin I this spring and found himself struggling a little towards the end. Granted, we pulled off a major move in the early spring, which didn't help with consistency, but that's what homeschooling is all about. You learn to roll with the punches and if you need to go back to something at a later time, that's real life. Learning to cope with change and interruption is a skill you can acquire at any age.
To that end, when I discovered that Visual Latin now offers FREE tests for its Latin I curriculum, I used it as an opportunity for review -- not for judging success or failure. We're going to spend some time reviewing lessons 1-30 via the 30 tests delivered in pdf format. I'm hoping that will build the confidence needed to jump back in and tackle Latin II.
