Originally published in 1945, this tried-and-true Latin curriculum has lost none of its efficiency over the years! Rigorous and straightforward in its instructional style, Henle Latin is structured around the sold-separately Latin Grammar reference text, which provides students with the grammar and syntax information they'll need, in conjunction with the Henle textbooks.
Henle Latin: Second Year walks students through transitioning to more translation-intensive exercises based upon the texts of Caesar. The first portion of the book contains Caesar's account of his conquest of Gaul, while the back half contains the lessons and exercises. The first 16 lessons can be used for those for whom review is necessary, or for students who did not entirely finish the first volume. Students who have no need of review may begin immediately to work on the exercises based on Caesar. Lessons check the student's reading ability and knowledge of syntax, forms, and vocabulary; each includes a list of vocabulary, notes for pages in the grammar text, and text to translate.
This second year text's content focuses on three great leaders: Julius Caesar, Vercingetorix, and finally Jesus Christ. The text is written directly to the student, and reflects the direct instructional style of the time in which it was written. Texts include Christian and Classical content (though Protestant homeschoolers may wish to note that the Christian content is occasionally from a Catholic perspective), as well as information on Roman and American history, with an emphasis on the importance of Christian values & virtues.
640 pages, softcover with Latin-English/English-Latin glossary. For students who have completed Henle Latin Year 1; if following the high school schedule, this book will be used during the sophomore year.
