    Hi! My daughter is greatly enjoying her Visual Latin lessons. Just recently her class, which uses Henle 1, learned about is/ea/id as demonstrative pronouns. My daughter was confused because she felt like she had already learned hic/haec/hoc and ille/illa/illud as demonstratives. How can you tell when is/ea/id are being used as personal pronouns versus a demonstrative pronoun? For example, she was given the following sentence from Henle – Ei qui sine spe pugnant, numquam fortiter pugnant. Thanks so much!

    Stacie, I am sorry for missing this question—we normally send these questions on to our teachers. I’ve alerted Dwane who will be able to help you out!
