  1. Question

    My 8 1/2 year old daughter has completed Language Lessons for Today Grade 2 (My Father’s World). I’m trying to decide what level she’d start with FLL. I assumed Level 3, but after reading some of the Q&As, I’m uncertain if I might, actually need to start with Level One or Two??

    • If she’s successfully completed “Language Lessons for Today, Grade 2,” then she could start FLL at Level 3. There might be a couple of new-to-her concepts at the beginning, but they’ll be reviewed before the book moves on to brand-new material.

  2. Question

    I’m still unclear the differences between Writing with Ease and First Language Lessons. I found a chart online of each curriculum level compared with grades, etc. We have WWE and I can’t figure out if FLL is something that would compliment or repeat the information.

    • 2 out of 2 people found this helpful

      Thanks for asking! FLL is grammar, so it covers parts of speech (nouns, verbs, etc), punctuation, capitalization, etc…how sentences are formed. WWE covers composition. That includes reading comprehension, summarizing what you’ve read, composing short paragraphs.
      If you are using both FLL and WWE, you can skip the FLL exercises called “Narration” or “Dictation” because you’ll get plenty of that in WWE.

  3. Question

    This answer above was very helpful! So, my next question is what are the major differences between First Language Lessons and the Grammar curriculum? My goal: I have a second grader and I want to help him prepare for Classical Conversations Essentials program.

    • One person found this helpful

      First Language Lessons is a grammar program for students in elementary grades (1-4 or 1-5). The “Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind” curriculum is for students in 5th grade and up.

    Question

    Is there a workbook for the level 2 First Language lessons ?

    • One person found this helpful

      No, there is not. Everything you need for the Year 2 lessons (except a pencil and scratch paper for some lessons) is in this Year 2 book.

  5. Question

    My daugher will be entering the Second grade this fall. Does she need to complete Level one before we start Level two or can we jump in at level two?

    • 3 out of 3 people found this helpful

      For FLL, you should start a 2nd grader in level 1. Work through that level this year, then skip to level 3 for her third grade grade. This is because levels one and two were originally combined in the same book. We broke them up for consistency and ease of use with our other materials. So, level two assumes the student has already gone through level one. Level three thoroughly reviews everything found in levels one and two (at a third grade pace) before introducing sentence diagramming.
      I hope that’s helpful…if you have further questions, please email us at [email protected]

  6. Question

    My daughter will be 8 this fall. We have completed level one and portions of level two for review, but we took a break to adapt a gentler pace as she was only six going on seven at the time. However, now that she is entering third grade I am not sure whether to go back and cover level two or begin with level three. It would certainly not hurt to have the review of level two, and I’m hesitant to start diagramming sentences at 8 years of age so as not to push her too quickly… do you have any recommendations?

    • We would recommend NOT rushing. Go ahead and finish level 2, to make sure she really masters the skills, before going on to level 3.

  7. Question

    I am confused about where to start with FLL for my son who will be in “2nd grade” this year. I have two editions of The Well Trained Mind- the earlier one says to start with level 1, but the newer edition says to start level 2… I have a copy of FLL combined edition- are the separated versions the same, or different than the combined version? I am confused!! ( We did MFW for 1st grade, and he has not really learned much grammar in the way of names of parts of speech, etc.)

    • We’re sorry about the confusion! For a 2nd grader, especially one who has not learned much grammar, go ahead and start with Level 1. In the older edition of FLL (with a little boy looking at a butterfly on the cover), that’s just “the first half of the book.” We later split them up into 2 books for ease of use. But yes, start with level 1.

  8. Question

    My oldest son is 8, beginning 3rd grade. We’ve done Classical Conversations Foundations since he was 4, and plan for him to start Essentials next year, when he is 4th grade. Up until recently I assumed we didn’t need grammar and writing curriculum until he began Essentials. Someone mentioned WWE and FLL to me, but I am unsure of where to start. Do we start with FLL L1 and then go through as much of L2 before we start we begin Essentials? Do we continue and finish L2 even as we begin Essentials? Or should we start in L3? As far as WWE, I assume L1. (We have completed L1&2 of All About Reading and working through Level 3.)
    Thank you for your time!

    • One person found this helpful

      For this student, we would suggest starting in First Language Lessons 3, and Writing With Ease 2.
      (First Language Lessons 3 is great for 3rd graders who haven’t done much formal grammar yet, as it gently reviews the older concepts before introducing new ones.)

  9. Question

    I have a 7.5 year old who will be starting 2nd grade and Classical Conversations in the fall. We’ve done Abeka for two years at home and she is reading chapter books beyond her grade level. She also has beautiful cursive. Should we use FLL level one and WWE?

    • Start FLL with Level 1, and WWE with level 1 also.

  10. Question

    I just beginning to homeschool my children who completed K and 2nd grade in public school last spring. Which levels would you recommend me starting at for both of them? My son (6) is just beginning to learn to read and my daughter (8) can read chapter books with ease!

    • We would suggest starting with First Language Lessons, level 3 for your 8-year-old. For your 6-year-old, start SLOWLY with First Language Lessons, Level 1. It may be that his reading needs to get a bit stronger before he tackles FLL. There’s plenty of time.

  11. Question

    No sample?

  12. Question

    Hello, My 8 year old daughter has completed FLL 1 and 2. She has begun Saxon Grammar and is doing well. Should I be worried about any learning gaps because she didn’t complete FLL 3 and 4 before moving onto Saxon? Thank you!

    • No need to worry…Saxon is a good program. And since she’s 8, she’s got plenty of time to learn the various components of grammar.

  13. Question

    I have a 9 year old who would be entering 4th grade if she were in PS. We haven’t done any formal grammar so I’m wondering if there is an assessment or something along those lines to help me figure out which level to purchase. We have been following CM style of learning and she is doing dictation and some narrative. Thank you.

    • The authors recommend Level 4 for a student in that age/situation. You can check out a sample of Level 4 to see what it covers. It starts out with some review of basic grammar concepts before introducing new topics.

  14. Question

    If my 7.5 year old child is entering second grade and has completed All About Reading Level 1 and All About Spelling Level 1, should I start at Level 1 or 2 for WWE and FLL?
