Salve! // Python's "Life of Brian" theater re-rel

Nomen mihi Julia est.

Well, it's about time I wrote to introduce myself. I'm a nearly middle-age adult, learning Latin at home with the assistance of Orberg's "LINGVA LATINA per se illustrata," Oxford Latin Course, Wheelock's (now strictly as a grammar reference), and both the book and audio tape versions of Traupman's "Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency." It's slowly starting to come together but I've only just started, and most of my journey is yet ...

The sound of Greek

The Sound of Greek, by Prof. Stanford is a book with a few voice fragments on tape. Does any one know if I can find these sound records on the net?

Speaking Latin

Reading Group

I was wondering... would there be any people interested in creating a Reading Group of Classic Literature? We could just choose a book each month, read it and discuss it, just for sheer pleasure. I assume that some people would use translations (as I would! :oops: ), but it would be great to discuss so many masterworks as there are in Greek and Latin Literature.

They run lights, spotlights, sound, and stagecrew with no monatary compensation. In previous years, the students have been awarded community service hours, a requirement for graduation with rewards for excess hours, because the students recieved no public recognition. This year parents, who were univolved in the musical, raised ...
