Introducing myself ("Novus discipulus sum.")

Salvete, all!

My name is Toby and I'm an American living and teaching English in Germany. For the last several weeks (New Year's Resolution) I've been trying to teach myself Latin using the "Lingue Latina per se illustrata" book, as well as the Cabridge Latin books and the Rosetta Stone website.

My interest in Latin is twofold: Ancient Rome has long been a source of fascination for me, and I think it would be cool ...

Re-Organizing the Forums

Paul Derouda suggested the possibility of re-organizing the forums, so I thought I'd go ahead and start the topic for all to weigh in.

As many of you know, when Textkit was initially started by Jeff, the site's main purpose was the digitization and distribution of public-domain texts related to learning Latin and ancient Greek. At the time (2002) there were precious few such texts out on the internet. The forums were designed mainly to ...

List of Classics Resources (Online)

http://classicsresources.info/ Is making the rounds currently and may be of interest to many here. You'll notice that we, of course, are listed. :lol: 8)

I am still working on my annotated and tailored resource lists for both languages, but as you can imagine this is more than a little useful.

My Introduction

I found Textkit while searching for translations of M&L missing from the utoronto site. I taught elementary and intermediate Latin in a Catholic seminary for several years and then was away from it for some time. I now have the opportunity to study again, so am using M&L as a review. I hope to respond and contribute where I have knowledge and to learn from the observations of others. (Especially to confirm where I think ...

Currently I teach High School Latin and am very excited to ...

introducing myself

Hello Textkit members,

I have been learning Greek since 2008. My basic text was the JACT "Reading Greek", and after a year's study with this I joined the Open University for the level 3 course, which was then available, using the same book. From late 2009 I have read variously bits of Homer, Plato, and most of an anthology also by JACT. At the moment, having discovered that my composition is so poor that it ...

introducing myself

I'm Gary. I studied Latin at school but sadly let it lapse, and although i've long regretted this i'd never quite got around to doing anything about it. I first began to look at Greek many years ago, but unfortunately the textbook i had back then was not very good and i became discouraged. Of late, however, my interest in sncient languages has been rekindled as an offshoot of other interests, and i've been ...

I am a new student! novus discipulus sum :D

Hello, everyone! I am very excited to be here, and hope that I could learn from you all on Greek and Latin! :lol:

I am now a PhD candidate in Peking University, China. Although I major in Chinese philology, I am also interested in western classics very much, especially the languages. I have learnt Latin for 2 years (Wheelock's Latin), and Greek for 1.5 years (Greek: An ...

New Student Here!

First of all, I have to say I can't believe this site exists! It has me feeling all excited and impatient with anticipation. I can't wait to learn.
I've always loved the classical word and the wonderful works it has produced. I'm a big fan of the Loeb Classical Library. I've always wondered what it would be like to read even the simplest of works in those languages. I'm a big reader and writer (Spanning ...

Introduction and Greetings

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here at TextKit. I am a 26 year-old teacher of religion and language arts at an international secondary school in West Africa. My formal educational includes a Bachelor of arts in English, and a Masters in Secondary Education. As far as classical languages go, I took Greek for a while in my undergraduate studies in order to fulfill a language requirement, but beyond a basic understanding of inflection ...
