    Who Wants to Win Visual Latin??

    July 27, 2015 by Brandy Vencel

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]hat’s right! I’m really excited today! We’re giving away a copy of Visual Latin, and the winner gets it exactly as she wants it — she gets to choose whether she wants a digital or hard copy version. {Sorry for acting like you’re all women — I know there are some men out there, and you are welcome to enter and I forgive you for never commenting.} Also: read to the bottom of the post because I’ve got a coupon code for you!

    Win Visual Latin

    So. Visual Latin. You all know I’ve loved it. For us, the Latin path has been like this so far:

    1. Visual Latin
    2. Visual Latin + Henle
    3. Live class with Dwane Thomas {we start this in the fall — he’s the teacher from Visual Latin}

    Can you tell we really like Mr. Thomas?

    Here’s the deal: the contest starts today and ends Thursday so that I can announce the winner on Facebook sometime over the weekend. If you win, I will email you, and you must respond within 24 hours, or I will choose a new winner. There are a variety of ways to earn entries — some you can do once, and others you can do multiple times.

    So … enter already! This contest is now closed.

    a Rafflecopter giveaway
    If you didn’t win, here’s a coupon code good for any Visual Latin product over at Compass Classroom: AFTERTHOUGHTS20 . It’ll give you 20% off from now until August 3, 2015!

    I’m looking forward to learning Latin with my oldest in a year or two. Visual Latin looks great!

    Latin is new to all of us and I need all the help I can get teaching it!

    Thanks so much for recommending Visual Latin. I’m excited to begin using it in the fall as I know NO Latin and will gladly defer to Dwayne to keep both me and my daughter laughing and learning Latin together!

    I would love to win this! Thanks!

  • Reply Patty July 28, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    I’ve read so many good things about visual Latin. Our financial situation has changed this year and there is no way that I could justify spending the money on something that might or might not be a fit for us.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    I’d love to win visual latin! My oldest daughter is doing AO y4 this school year.

    So missed you at the At Home retreat in Indiana!

  • Reply Kelly July 28, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Just discovered your blog today through AO Forum. I NEED to win this because I’ve wanted to learn Latin along side my boys and this makes it look fun & easy! Thanks !

  • Reply Misty L July 28, 2015 at 12:04 pm

    Yay! I need to win this because I totally trust your recommendations on books & curric, so if you love this program I’m sure we will too!

  • Reply Marie July 28, 2015 at 9:25 am

    We’ve been muddling along with Latin for too long…. we NEED Visual Latin!

  • Reply Kris July 28, 2015 at 9:00 am

    This looks amazing! I need this to help my kids that are struggling with Latin and free is always great for finances.

  • Reply Kris July 28, 2015 at 8:58 am

    This looks amazing! I need this to help my children struggling with Latin and the free part is certainly helpful with finances.

    This guy is great, he’s got such a dry sense of humor and makes learning more fun for the kids!

  • Reply Sharon July 28, 2015 at 5:03 am

    I need to win so my kids can learn latin and amaze and impress everyone. 🙂

    So I can see what all the fuss is about 😉

    Hoping to win Visual Latin!

  • Reply JoyH July 28, 2015 at 12:27 am

    I need to win because we need another Latin program, and I’ve heard good things about this one.

  • Reply Mollie K July 27, 2015 at 9:40 pm

    Grateful for a chance to win this! I have no idea where to start in Latin for my kiddos, so this would be a great beginning!

  • Reply Paula July 27, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    For some reason it wouldn’t let me comment on the giveaway above, but Visual Latin would be a great supplement to our Henle curriculum.

  • Reply COMama July 27, 2015 at 9:17 pm

    Where is the big-eyed drooling icon when you need it? ? ? How’s that?! Teacup started Y4 in the spring, and I figured there was no way we could tackle Latin at this point. Via DVD, however… I think this is the way we’ll have to go!

  • Reply Danielle July 27, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    I would love to give Visual Latin a try with my kiddos. I have been thrilled with all the other curriculum I have ordered from Compass Classroom. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • Reply Tammy July 27, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    Thank you for the giveaway. You ask for us to tell why we need to win. For my family this has been a tough year and finances are well below where they need to be. I am looking at trying to piecemeal a latin curriculum for free online for my student who has completed all the curriculum we have.

  • Reply Melissa July 27, 2015 at 7:37 pm

    Hey Brandy,

    We tried Latina Christiana last year unsuccessfully. I’ve watched the demos of Visual Latin and it looks awesome! I need to win so we can start fresh and hopefully regain our dd’s love of learning 🙂


  • Reply laura July 27, 2015 at 7:25 pm

    Me, me! Pick me! This is what I’d like to start with.

  • Reply becky July 27, 2015 at 7:16 pm

    I need to win because we start Latin in a little over a month, and I have no plan yet. Winning=plan made 🙂

  • Reply Kimberly July 27, 2015 at 6:13 pm

    Latin is a year away for us, but I have already been looking into it because it feels so overwhelming! This looks like a great giveaway. Thanks!

  • Reply Tania July 27, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    I need to win Visual Latin because you have told me that it amazing. I am starting my oldest with Latin this year and need amazing (because I have no clue otherwise). Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Reply SarahD July 27, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    I’d like to win so we can begin with a great program.

  • Reply Kortney July 27, 2015 at 3:51 pm

    I’m almost convinced to add Latin into the mix. Maybe this would tip the balance.

  • Reply Michelle July 27, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    This Latin curriculum looks very good, but I do not know if I can justify buying another curriculum.

  • Reply Monica Duenes July 27, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    Hi Brandy!

    I NEED to win this so that Latin time will become happy time!! I have seen the clips of Mr. Thomas teaching and I have also had friends tell me their great experience with it. I want it to be our turn!!! 🙂

  • Reply Parke July 27, 2015 at 2:44 pm

    I actually have this on my “need list” for this upcoming school year. I would LOVE to start Latin this year- with 3 of my 5 boys!! So excited for even the chance to win.

  • Reply Kristi July 27, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    I would love to (okay, NEED to! 🙂 ) win it because it would be wonderful to have this tool for our family to learn Latin! Thanks for holding the giveaway!

  • Reply MomOfFourDears July 27, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    I need to win because I have tried teaching Latin to my kiddos with something else, but it is not progressing well.

    I NEED to win it because it looks great and I will NEED it in a few years when we are done with our beginning Latin and NEED something more. 😉 Because, I NEED it.

  • Reply Alonda July 27, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    Latin has been a challenge for us – we have tried a few different ways and have not made much progress. Visual Latin looks like a product that would give me a different result!

  • Reply Dawn July 27, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    I need it because I want to be just like you and follow your Latin path. 🙂

  • Reply Rebecca July 27, 2015 at 12:28 pm

    Foreign Language is been a big failure for us as a whole. We have been using Getting Started With Latin and nothing seems to stick. I am hoping we would have success with this program. It is worth a try. I would love to win it.

    Thank you for this chance to win an amazing curriculum resource. We LOVE latin!

    I just got back from the conference as well. After reading much of the volumes, it was so amazing to hear people who believed similarly to the way I’ve come to believe about homeschooling. I do wish you could have been there though!

    Mitch and I were just talking about Latin. I’d love to have something to start with!

  • Reply Monica July 27, 2015 at 9:08 am

    Visual Latin would be a huge blessing to our family! With 6 kids 10 and under, five of them boys, quiet, one-on-one lesson time comes at a premium.

    My 10 year-old would LOVE to learn Latin, but I don’t have any extra (quiet) time to teach myself first. Visual Latin might be a win-win for us both–something we could learn together!

    Even if we aren’t selected as winners, we may take advantage of the coupon code. 😉

  • Reply Karen @ Living Unabridged July 27, 2015 at 9:08 am

    I don’t know that I NEED to win, but our family enjoys studying Latin together and this could be a new tool in our arsenal.

  • Reply Kristin July 27, 2015 at 4:12 am

    My older daughter has had great success with a different Latin program – and so I own those books for each year. But, now my younger daughter is struggling terribly with those same books – – – she really needs the more visual, dynamic approach. Right now, I can’t afford to invest in a new program for her, unfortunately, even though I know her learning style would benefit. Winning Visual Latin would really help our homeschool right now. Thanks for the opportunity!
