An Introduction

Hello, Salvete seu Χαιρετε, Ξερξης Βασιλευς ειμι ( or Xerxes Rex if you prefer the Latin.)I am new here but I have studied Latin for about 4 years and have been studying Attic Greek for about a year. I joined this site to be apart of a community that has a love of classical history, culture, literature, and language. I work as a substitute teacher in California and have my BA in European History, moreover ...

Hello From Kansas

Hello my name is Sarah and I am looking forward to learning Greek and Latin. I also recently found out that I had family from ancient Greece and Rome so it would be a big help to learn the language they used back then etc. :P

I'm a 61 year old dabbler at language learning. I'm going to drift off the ancient language topic a tiny bit in this post, just to introduce myself.
I studied Latin in high school, and got to the point where I could barely begin to read Caesar, and I haven't done much with it since. I learned Samoan to a quite good level (for a foreigner) when I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Samoa. ...

Allo

Hey everyone, I'm John and I'm interested in learning both classical languages. I enjoy reading, playing soccer, etc. I'm currently starting my freshman year in college. As to other languages, I have a decent command of both Spanish and French. I'd like to eventually add German, Dutch, and of course both Latin and Ancient Greek to that list.

Uhhhh....it's been a while....do I still know anyone here?

Hello Textkittens,

It's been a very long time since I've visited this site. I was incredibly active on it during my undergrad (Koine Greek Major), but since I got my degree life has been incredibly hectic.

I'm just wondering if any of my old friends (and yes, by now we are all old) are still around? Say hello if you are.

Salve

Hello, I am Colby Glass, Professor Emeritus (retired). I was an academic librarian, department chair, and taught library science and philosophy. I have studied Latin since middle school, and got a minor in it for my BA. All these years I have promised myself that when I retired I would learn Greek, especially Homer.

Well, now I have retired and I have quite a few texts and textbooks on Greek and am wading through it. ...

Hello from New User

Hello all who read this -- I'm coming back to Latin from a lengthy absence. I've studied several modern languages and enjoy them primarily for reading. Latin has always had a particular fascination for me, and even after several decades, while the precise forms have become fuzzy in my aging memory, the inner logic of the language seems to still be there. As I am conditioned to learning modern languages, my first goal upon reacquiring ...

Greetings! (An Introduction)

Hello, all!

Meka here. I am currently completing my MA in English, specializing in Old English literature, after which I plan to pursue a PhD in the same subject. In the past I've studied classical and ecclesiastical Latin at the introductory level, using the 7th edition of Wheelock's Latin and John F. Collins' A Primer of Ecclesiastical Latin, respectively. Alas, my study has lapsed a bit since then, and my foundation is shakier than it ...

Hello from new Textkit member

Hi All,



Here is a little background regarding my Greek interests :

I continue in my own Greek odyssey - which is to learn ancient Greek well enough to read Homer's Odyssey in Greek with some level of appreciation. I started this project 5 years ago ( ! ) and have spent most of that time circling around the beginning. [ I suspect that sight-reading of Greek sentences - ability to read aloud and pronounce ...

Salvete

I am a new member here on Textkit, and I wanted to introduce myself. I am learning Latin using Wheelocks, plus two supplementary texts: Scribblers, Sculptors, and Scribes; and another book called 38 Latin Stories. Since I work full time, I study independently, and don't really have anyone to ask questions. I joined in the hope that I could get some occasional assistance and just absorb more Latin in general. Hopefully in time I'll be ...
