I started this when my son was in 4th grade and it was too stressful for him. When I started it when he was in 9th grade he did much better and really enjoyed it. He did it with his 5th grade sisters. His sisters did fine. I am not sure if doing it with someone made it more manageable for him or because he was older and more mature. In any case, I am glad we gave it another try because we all really enjoyed studying Latin together.

Teacher's book so well done. Easy to teach from, but the supportive materials also very good (videos, charts, flashcards, audio, extra translation work, etc.). Pacing is excellent , so approachable even for the younger set. Thorough grammar instruction,
