Latin? Two of my highschool boys decided to take latin this year. I had let them know from the start that it would be a hard class but they insisted that they could handel it. Well.. they are not doing so good was wondering if there is anything I could be doing at home to help them out. A website or something. They do study everyday making flash cards and such so its not like they are not trying. We are already a month into the new school year so changing classes is not an option at this time. 


*Thanks for all the great ideas everyone.. And sorry it took so long to reply. Had a very busy weekend due to my daughter decied that she was going to be born on Friday the 13th 10 days early. I will be looking into all the info you guys gave me. THANKS! :)

Have you tried googling "Latin help websites"?

The textbook that I used for my Latin classes, Ecce Romani, is apparently still the main textbook used for a lot of Latin classes. There's a website with games and exercises at: http://www.tabney.com/ecce1.html and http://abney.homestead.com/ecce2.html.

Check out quizlet.com. You should be able to make a free account. You can make your own sets to study and practice. Then the site puts the flashcards into different study activities.

Sorry, I am no help.   My kids took German & Spanish.   Latin isn't even an option here.

Nope, my son is fluent in French.

I see that Rosetta Stone has a Latin version. I believe we can get access to Rosetta Stone free through our library. So I would check your library to see if they have any resources for your sons.

Good luck!

Is tutoring available at school?  There are 4 languages offered at out high school, but Latin is not one.  Dd took some in her first year of college.
