Why Study Latin?
See Sample Lessons
Bring Latin into Your Child's Life!
Homeschool parents understand the edge that learning Latin will give to their children. But in the whirlwind of studying math, language arts, history and science, to say nothing of fixing nutritious meals and cleaning homes, Latin studies is one of the first things to go. Now it doesn’t have to be. Introducing Visual Latin, the exciting combination of short vibrant videos and appealing exercises designed to teach your children Latin.

Hear It, See It, Speak It, Write It, and Think It!
Just load the Visual Latin DVD in the player, hit play and your child starts learning; nothing could be easier. Every Visual Latin lesson contains three parts: grammar, sentences, and reading, with the reading segment covering reading, comprehension, and translation.

Videos Take Less Than Ten Minutes!
In each of the three parts, you begin with a video that takes less than ten minutes to watch. Afterwards, your child completes the corresponding PDF worksheet to reinforce what he just learned. So Visual Latin is not only visual, it is multi-sensory. You hear it, see it, speak it, write it, and ultimately think it.

Work Independently!
Because each lesson has a reading translation component, your child will be translating complete sentences, much of it Christian in nature, from the very first lesson! No prior knowledge of Latin by either the student or the parent is required to use the self-paced Visual Latin curriculum. With the relaxed, humorous, short, and easy-to-digest lessons, children nine and older should be able to complete most of the work independently.

Fun and Engaging!
Visual Latin is the joint idea of two dads whose wives homeschool their kids. According to his bio, instructor Dwane Thomas was raised by a pack of wild Latin teachers near the Rubicon, and has been teaching and telling jokes in Latin for fifteen years. His passion is what makes Visual Latin not only informative but also funny and engaging. If you have given up the dream of teaching Latin because it seemed too difficult, too costly, or too time-consuming, Visual Latin will let your dream become a reality.

Use for Multiple Students Within Your Home
For ages nine and older, Visual Latin is non-consumable and can be used to teach as many children as are a part of the same household. For more information click the “Learn More” tab above.

    Visual Latin - A Timberdoodle Review
    "...I have to share a little bit about why the program works so well for us.
    1. Short lessons. Thank you Dwayne Thomas for understanding the attention span of my boys.
    2. Repetition, reinforcement, and building skills in increments.
    3. Practicing what they have learned while it's still fresh in their minds.
    4. Humor. Dwayne Thomas is funny. He makes my kids laugh.
    5. The human element. When Dwayne Thomas makes mistakes, he doesn't make a big deal about them.
    6. Relaxed, conversational delivery from a male teacher..."

    Needs editing September 10, 2014
    Reviewer: Karen  
    We have been doing Visual Latin for over a year now. We in the second half. Although Duane is very knowledgeable in Latin the worksheets contain many errors. You have the worksheets/test and then what should be the exact same thing with answers. The problem is that too often they don't match up. We may have correctly translated what was on the worksheet but we don't know because the answer sheet might be worded differently. The odd thing is that when I went to print off the worksheets/tests and answers for the second half of the program I had to wait three weeks because they were not available due to "editing". Yet we are still finding a lot of errors. TD Reply: Hello Karen, <br/> <br/>Thank you for bringing to our attention the incongruities in the Visual Latin program. We have worked hard on updating all the teaching materials, and just released new versions last month! They are now available for download here: http://store.compasscinema.com/categories.php?category=Visual-Latin/Guides%2C-Worksheets-%26-Audio <br/> <br/>Please let me know if you have any additional questions or comments regarding our curriculum! Your feedback has been very helpful. <br/> <br/>Thank you, <br/> <br/>Kathryn Cannon <br/>www.CompassClassroom.com

    This is a wonderful program! November 20, 2013
    Reviewer: Wendy W.  
    I am very happy with my purchase of Visual Latin. My 14 year old daughter enjoys the DVDs and looks forward to studying Latin so that she can read the Bible in Latin. The service at Timberdoodle was great, as always. I highly recommend both Visual Latin and Timberdoodle!

    We are finally learning Latin! June 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Mama2NineSoFar  
    I can't say enough good things about this program. We have tried several Latin programs over the last sixteen years. Most were either too complicated or hard to do with mixed ages, and, yes, too boring. Visual Latin is perfect for the homeschooling family. We gather together on the couch to watch the lesson, then everyone goes to the table to do the worksheets. It is presented in manageable chunks so that everyone, from Mom down to the eight year old can keep up. I do think it would be nice to have a little more review built into the seat work. Although, I am the one who forgets things, not the kids. The best part is the instructor. He is funny and relaxed while really knowing his stuff. We wait for his next corny joke or story. We honestly look forward to doing Latin together! There can be no better recommendation than that!
