I have been very fearful of teaching Latin at home but finally brought myself to dig into this program. I am learning as I teach and doing ok. My children are having to work hard but it is not unmanageable. They are 9 and 11 and it seems like about the right level and amount of work. I am using the level 2 with Ludere Latin 1 books because my children have done some memory work in Latin previously. I am glad I waited till my children were a bit older because we have needed to master some English (especially spelling and handwriting) before we were ready to do the quantity of work required by this program. So far, it's going well.
