A new, old way to learn

Has anyone heard of a method of elementary through secondary teaching method that uses the Trivium? The Trivium is the belief that as the human body developes in stages, so does the mind. During the elementary years the curriculum focuses on grammer, facts, and the basics of a foreign language. During the middle years when the mind begins to reason more, the classes focus on the logic of the subjects (how the facts go together), ...

greetings latineer

Salvete!

My cognomen here is Alauda – Latin for “Lark”, but my real name is Richard Crockett. I am an artist who lives, alas, in Los Angeles.

One day, I needed a break from painting and drawing, so I decided to do some writing, and the writing grew into a novel. It takes place in Roman times during the reign of Augustus.

In the writing, in an effort to give my characters a Roman voice, ...

Introduction

Good evening, everyone.

Thank you all for being here. I am delighted to have discovered Textkit.

I live in New York City, and I am a writer. I own a very busy business, but I love Latin, and I love to read.

My last Latin classes ended many decades ago. I would review Latin on and off over the past several years, using Wheelock, working at it for a while, then stopping for a while ...

Mental improvement books

What books of this kind have people read? What do you think of them?

I've read a lot of the Tony Buzan books (mind-mapping, memory improvements etc.) and generally I've found them very enlightening. A search on Amazon reveals all sorts of other books making interesting claims, such as increasing your power with numbers.

I'm generally inclined to believe these claims, as it seems to me that a lot of academic success comes from merely ...

experimental SPIonic-style classical Greek keyboard entry

Hello all,

I’ve created an experimental HTML document which will automagically convert ASCII keyboard input within its <textarea> into Unicode classical Greek characters; the keyboard mapping is identical to that of the SPIonic typeface. The goal of this experiment is that the classical Greek text entered within the <textarea> can be cut/copied/pasted to other browser windows — or to any application that supports Unicode text. The benefit of the experiment is that the generated text ...

Could Troy be our Trojan Horse?

After the first Lord of the Rings movie came out, the number of people wanting to learn elvish ( :roll: ) jumped significantly. Argueably, if The Lord of the Rings were originally written in elvish, that number of people would have been far higher.

If Troy turns out to be a good movie, we should hopefully see a noticeable increase in the number of people learning ...

Scanlon's Latin Grammar

I have been considering learning Latin with "Scanlon's Latin Grammar." It is liturgical Latin set up for reading the Missal and Breviary. Unfortuanately, I have not been able to find an answer key for it. Perhaps if you had it on line, there would be more interest in it and someone would start a group.
