Hello,<br /><br />I am a postgraduate student at Cardiff University reading Creative and Critical Writing. I am from Cardiff, Wales and Welsh is my first language. I'd be happy do advise or answer questions about Welsh (I have encountered many classics scholars enthusiastic to learn Welsh or are already proficient). My other language interests are Russian and French. I am very pleased to be a member of this forum and hope to be able to ...

New teacher = horror

:'(<br /><br />i've just found out that my current latin teacher won't be teaching us next year (cause she's pregnant), but instead we'll be getting this zombie-teacher. i've had him before for three years, and he messed up everything for me. i was always failing the exams when i had him.<br /><br />he didn't care if we understood what he was on about, he just handed out a sheet of paper with the new forms ...

shakespeare in latin?

Hello all,<br />just wondering if anyone knew if there are any translations of Shakespeare into Latin on the web? I'm sure some bored scholar has to have attempted it at least once. I'm looking for Macbeth specifically, the witches' songs. I'm directing the play next year & thought them singing in Latin might sound more fearsome & strange than the customary "eye of newt & toe of dog" mumbo-jumbo we're all used to & cringe ...

What I hate

Is those people on tapes, in movies, even EXAMINATION boards who think that Latin is pronounced like English! <br /><br />http://www.arlt.co.uk/dhtml/gcse_audio.php<br /><br />If you don't have the accent, don't even try! It misleads so many kids who will think that Latin is pronounced with an achingly strong American accent; or British, depending on whence the speaker comes. <br /><br />It's a disgrace! <br /><br />THIS is how it's done http://dekart.f.bg.ac.yu/~vnedeljk/VV/ ...

Hello.<br />Just started using your JWW First Greek Book a few months ago.<br />I really have to thank you all for providing this book online. Absolutely<br />an excellent way to get prepared for the Anabasis. I was using another<br />set of books, JACT, before, but now am focusing on this one exclusively.<br />The grammatical parts seem so much more workable.<br /><br />Keep up the good work.<br /><br />cheers<br />richc<br />

Hi all,<br /><br />I've been reading this forum for some time, and have decided to join in. My name's Ingrid, I'm Dutch, and I'm currently making my umptieth attempt at learning Latin.<br /><br />I've head three years of Latin at high school level, where I read some Caesar and Ovid, i.e. spending more time reading the dictionary than the actual text. Somehow learning vocab didn't seem important at the age of 14:). The book focused ...
