greetings and salutations

First I was happy to be permitted to learn latin in a non-latin public school as a class, and then I found this site. I was introduced to latin in a small private school that tought it to all of the students. When the highschool shutdown I was forced to learn on my own. After several weeks of frustration of dealing with some of the more complex writting techniques I found this site and was ...

Ecce tiro!

Hello all,

I just found textkit.com tonight. :) I live in Vermont, USA. I’m a programmer by trade, with interests in language and history. I’m circling back to Latin now; I never studied it formally, but dove in or dabbled as time has permitted. I expect to be an intermittent participant, so please forgive me if I don’t reply in a timely fashion. I appreciate all of ...

Hi! I'm new...

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone here. This is my first attempt to learn Latin... :idea: :!: I'm taking this on as an independent learner simply because I find the origin of word(s) to be interesting. I'm interested in the sacred aspects that cultivated written languages. I hope this doesn't sound too weird ...

There is some neat stuff there, but I haven't explored the site thoroughly yet, so don't be surprised if a link doesn't work, etc.

Toughest Greek you've read....?

I thought I'd ask y'all what the toughest Greek you've ever read is? For me...if would probably have to be Sophopcles (O.R.) or Philo. As far as the New Testament goes....I just read through Hebrews and it kicked my butt fairly well....Lukan stuff isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be (IMHO), and James can be a bit thick.

Well......how about you??
