Salvete Omnes! (Introductory post from galiana)

Greetings everyone,

I'm happy to have found this forum. Having taken a break from Latin for many years in favor of French and German, I've decided to resume my Latin studies. Since languages aren't much fun without compatriots with which to share them, I began searching for a Latin-learning community, and stumbled across this one.

I learned Latin in secondary school many years ago, but have since forgotten everything except "Caecilius in forō ambulat" - ...

Hello to All: My Introduction

I am Don. Ancient Greek is my primary interest here.
I first studied Ancient Greek a long time ago using the JACT textbooks. My study lay dormant for the most part until a couple of years ago. Using LWT (Learning with Texts) as my modus operandi and texts downloaded from Google Books, Perseus, Bibliotheca Augustana, Hodoi elektronikai and here, I work pretty much daily on Ancient Greek.
From time to time I have peered into ...

χαίρετε φίλοι,

ὄνομά μοι Θωμᾶς (Thomas). I’ve been doing Greek and Hebrew for a few years now, but have really just begun to give a lot of attention to Greek over the past year. I teach Biblical Greek primarily to lay people at a Bible school run by my Church. The course is taught with the same rigour as a typical first year seminary or university course in Biblical Greek.

While my primary interest is ...

Introducing myself


I am a portuguese high scool (here it is called "Secundario") freshman so sorry if my English is not too good.

I have been learning latin (first through video lessons but now through Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata, I am currently on the second book Roma Aeterna) for 6 months and I am now able to read simple classical athors (with a lot of effort) such as Caesar and a few of Cicero (VERY ...

my name is Josh and I recently started learning Latin. I've always had an interest in history, philosophy, and prose, and recently developed an itch to be able to read some Latin texts in the original language. Presently I've started using D'ooge's Latin For Beginners. I'm also learning some other languages but Latin is my current primary focus. Hope to learn a lot from these forums.

An introduction.


I have often browsed this forum for the past few months without making any posts and have learned quite a bit from those who frequently post in the Greek forum and from reading older posts. There comes a time, though, when observing fails to be production and participation is required.

A short autobiography:

I am currently enrolled in an Undergraduate program in Canada majoring in Classics and minoring in Medieval Studies and Philosophy. I ...

Allow me to introduce myself. I studied Greek a very, very long time ago, and am trying to come back to it after these many years. I picked up my trusty old Chase & Phillips and have (re)made my way through its 40 brief chapters. I was pleased to see that I hadn't forgotten as much as I thought -- though I had totally forgotten that there was such a tense as the future perfect ...

Salve, Textkit!

Hi, I'm Emmanuel Estrada @ StradeMan. I'm a Form 3 student from Malaysia. I've been browsing Textkit since the start of the year and I found many invaluable sources on Greek and Latin languages.

I'm always interested in Graeco-Roman culture. Their language (especially Latin) are elegant in my sense even though they're hard for me. Their system of philosophy are quite diverse and that's what I like; seeing other's perspective from a different cultural setting ...

New Member Introduction


I studied Latin in college, and have been going back through Wheelock to brush up on what I've forgotten (and learn some things for the first time, like the more obscure subjunctive clauses). I also like to try and translate modern phrases into Latin, because it's challenging to come up with equivalent expressions for many of our modern ideas (I tried translating "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island", but got stuck on the translation for ...

I'm curious what everyone thinks about this topic. I've noticed that it can be a very heated subject on wikipedia articles. My personal view is that the BC/AD system is better on practical grounds: 1) the uniformity of two characters in each 2) easier to distinguish at sight 3) easier to say in speech.

As I christian I don't really care which system is used, but the motive (as I understand it) behind the BCE/CE ...
