Air Torus (or possibly how to say Torus of the Air, Torus made from Air...)

I found out that Air - of the air, high air is "Aerius"

Then torus is just Torus. ...

Latin or Greek? Hmm...

I have a simple question, which language do you think is harder, Latin or Greek? I’m sure this has been asked before so please forgive me if so.

I ask because I couldn’t restrain myself anymore the other day and I opened up A Greek Primer and read the first chapter. First there was the beginner’s hurdle: the alphabet. I didn’t have too much trouble with that because I have had past experience, and then ...

Sanskrit on TextKit?

Hello,
Is anyone here interested in learning Sanskrit? I myself would like to do so once I have reached competency in Latin and Greek.

Are there any plans to include Sanskrit books on Textkit?

Teaching Latin to 5th and 6th graders.

Does anyone know a good Latin textbook for 5th and 6th graders? I tutor students who are homeschooled, but usually I work with older (high school age) children whose parents have already chosen a textbook or program. I myself am partial to "Latin for Reading," but I don't think that would work for younger children. Any advice on this would be appreciated.
