Student Testimonials

I loved the interactivity with the teacher and other participants. Justin’s enthusiasm and sense of humor were amazing!

Justin took a language most people consider long dead and brought it to life as if it were the lyrics to my son’s favorite song.

I was amazed by how high my comprehension was and how confident I felt, which was certainly on account of Justin’s amazing teaching style.

Justin is so passionate and dynamic.

Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator. He brings extensive knowledge, curiosity about both language and people, a sense of humor, and an extraordinary ability to connect. He is thorough, clear, exciting, talented, interesting, and fun.

Justin is without a doubt the best teacher I have ever known. I’ve never seen a teacher more excited for or more skilled at teaching a language through whatever methods work for his students.

If everyone taught languages like Justin Slocum Bailey, we would have a world of self-directed polyglots.

The best thing about this experience was…JUSTIN!

    My 12-year old daughter and I took Justin’s Latin class together last summer and had the best time! Justin is a gifted teacher and he literally brings Latin to life in the class. Before the class I was honestly a little unsure of why anyone would want to take a Latin class, but now I recommend it to everyone. There are so many connections to English and all the Romance Languages. This would be a great class for someone facing PSATS or SATS, wanting a base from which to explore many other languages, interested in science and medicine, and so much more! Plus, it is a ton of fun. (Forget about all the tedious translation work you did in your Latin class- this is a totally different kind of experience.) My daughter and I still remember the Latin from the class now 7 months later and its like we have our own secret language at home when we don’t want anyone to know what we are saying.
