    My student has just finished Visual Latin 2. Where should we go from here? Will there be a Visual Latin 3 anytime soon (what my child wants), or are there other recommendations?

    Hi there. Great question!

    Who wouldn’t want to continue with Dwane! He’s the best. Objectively. 🙂

    What comes after Visual Latin?

    Wow, you finished all of Visual Latin 1 & 2?! Well done! Here is what Dwane Thomas recommends after Visual Latin:

    “After you finish Visual Latin, read Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg. You will not regret it. Visual Latin will give you the grammar you need to read the book. Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg will give you the vocabulary you need to read nearly any Latin 2 course.

    There is nothing quite like Lingua Latina. It is a novel, written completely in Latin. Starting with the very basics, it advances quickly into very challenging Latin. By the end of the book, students are reading sections of the New Testament in Latin. The book teaches about 2,000 Latin words. Henle Latin 1, on the other hand, teaches about 500 Latin words. That is really not much vocabulary. Certainly, it is not enough to open many Latin doors.

    My recommendation after Visual Latin? Read Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg. It will prepare you for almost anything.”

    Hope that helps.
