Salvete.

As promised in my introduction post here am I starting to put questions. My first question, and probably of every one trying to learn Latin by himself and without a great knowledge of English, is about pronunciations.

Hello!

Hi Everyone. I am trying to teach myself Latin through a book called, "Oxford Latin Course, Part I" and it seems to be going really well so far. I just thought I'd introduce myself because, as my family doesn't know Latin and I really don't know anybody who does that I can freely talk to, I might have to resort to coming here to ask questions. Thanks, and hope to talk to most of you ...
