here, winter is quickly approaching, the air is cold, and the trees are almost bare. life is busy and good. :)

Caesar agains the Celts

I just picked up this book "Caesar against the Celts" by Ramon L Jimenez. I've only read the first chapter so far and it is very good... engaging and well-written. Has anyone else read this?

No orange icons...

Aren't the little icons to the left of the message headings supposed to be orange if there are new messages in the thread? That feature doesn't seem to be working for me.

LatinStudy

In addition to your learning of Latin here, some of you might be interested in the LatinStudy list:

http://www.ravendays.org/latin/lists/listindex.html

I've never participated, but I've seen it. Looks interesting. I just read on another list that a new study group is starting to translate Aeneid VIII. I may join that. There's no cost to subscribe and you can come and go as you wish.

They seem to have groups working ...

An Introduction

Hello. I've been lurking in the shadows for the past month. I'm very interested in learning Attic Greek, and eventually the Homeric dialect.
I have been studying White's First Greek Book, and have finally decided to join the community!

Well, talk to you later. :)

Test yourself

http://www.aqa.org.uk/

This site is the qualifications and assessment site for England and Wales. Select the qualification you are interested in and the subject. GCSE (!6+ exams) has a syllabus page for Latin and Classical Greek with useful vocab lists. AS and A2 (18+) also have syllabuses. Both areas also have sample exam papers and mark schemes. I have found them quite useful to gauge progress.

Locutio

http://www.locutio.com/index.php3

This French site has things some of us have long been looking for: a dictionary of synonyms (admittedly you have to know French to be able to understand it), easy readings (all in Latin so you don't really need to know French). Of course those who know French will get more out of it, but even if you don't you could still get something.
