Ego discipula Latinae Linguae sum. Nomen pura at tortura habeō. (derivatives of my name)
I am currently in my second year of a Latin course offered by my homeschooling board using Lingua Latina by Hans Orsburg and I am really enjoying learning new words and phrases through it. I found this site while searching for what tunē meant and then felt really silly afterwards. :D ...

How to type in Greek on a MacBook?

Hi, I just wondered if anyone could help - I would like to type in Ancient Greek on my laptop (which is a MacBook, if that makes any difference), for example in Google (I've already figured out how to type in Word) and on this forum? Currently I can only use a Greek keyboard on my mobile devices because I've installed keyboards on them, but am not sure how to do this on a mac. ...

New member from the Philippines

Hello. I'm Ralph, college graduate from the Philippines and helping out in my parent's store for the last 2 years. As for why I'm interested in learning Attic Greek...it's because of this story I'm writing.

Yes, I really am going as far as learning an ancient language for my story, which I hope in the future, once I finish it, would be the first non-Japanese Light Novel to break into the Light Novel market, and ...

Could I advertise another forum?

I do not want to be rude or disrespectful, so I would first like to ask permission. I happen to know an active Latin forum and a budding Greek forum that might interest users here. Would it be okay for me to advertise these forums on this thread?

New Member...from Western Australia

Hi all,
I'm a teacher of the Bible down here in Western Australia, and more importantly a learner 'disciple' of the Lord Jesus. Still hanging onto my Greek from College days, but it can be a pretty lone journey with the Koine Greek of the Bible. Was hoping to find some wiser Greek students of the Bible, could help with some questions, here and there.
Is that ok to prove I'm real.
Totally cool about ...

Salvēte. Nōmen mihi est Kleō, discupulusque linguae Latīnae sum. Lēctiōnēs omnēs librī Wheelock's Latin iam exēgī, et quōs auxilium petunt iuvāre volō, auxiliumque cuius egeō ego accipere volō. Linguam Graecam tamen nōn didicī, sed eam mox discam. Linguam Hispānicam, Anglicam, et Albānicam quoque cognōvī. Sī Latīnē loquī aut auxilium cupitis, ego hīc vōbīs sum. Valēte, et semper amāte linguam Latīnam! Quoque mihi dīcite quam bona Latīna mea sit!

Learning old [insert language name]


I have considered for some time now to learn old norse, old english and old german, (not necessarily in this order, certainly not at the same time).

Can anyone recommend me some fine resources to study them? If it is not useless to mention, I am primarily interested in literature, v.g., Beowulf, the nordic sagas, Nibelungenlied.

Many thanks in advance. :D

New Forum User - Grk NT Student (Self Teaching at Home)

Hello All --

Taking up Latin with Reggie

Hi. My name's Greg, and I've recently returned to reading Latin with Reggie Foster by way of his OSSA book. I took Latin via Wheelock at university and, quite frankly, hated it. (I still suspect the biggest problem was my professors, but it is what it is now.) I, however, loved Latin itself, and was always disappointed that I never learned it as well as I wanted to.

I've returned to Latin with Reggie's system, ...
