New to D'Ooge, looking for Latin buddies

Hello all, I have recently (within the last month) started my Latin adventure. In that time I have already learned more than I ever expected to in such a short period of time.

New member wants to start a new group!

Pronunciation question

:?: Quick question on pronunciation. In the word nauta it is listed as saying the au as "ow",as in, cow. Now a days we use the sound "aw"; which would be more accurate, or would it be something in between, like a softer "aw"?

Readers or Primers

:?: I'm just starting with D'Ooge's Latin for Beginners, and I was wondering if there was a Reader or Primer that might be a good read to go along with it. Also what would all of you recommend as the first 'works' to be attempted after finishing the course?

Ninety-Five Year Old Book Review

Salvete Omnes,

For those of you who love and cherish D'Ooge's Latin for Beginners, go to the JSTOR site http://www.jstor.org/ and browse for the 1912 review. It is a very cogent and detailed analysis of our favorite Latin textbook. The review is amazingly fresh; it seems like it could have been written recently except for a few out-of-date references.

Note: it is actually easier to google "D'Ooge Latin for ...

willing to learn latin!

Hello to everyone. I have a great time learning languages and have decided to try Latin. I downloaded the D'Ooge method and printed out the first 25 lessons or so; right now I'm on lesson 15 (in three days! I have plenty of time now and want to take advantage of it while it lasts) and so far I find it a very bright, efficient method, at least the best I've been able to find. ...
