Howdy from Tennessee.

I am from a small city in TN. I've only recently started my journey into the languages. I have no idea where to start, but I do plan on attempting Latin first. I, one random day, decided that learning Latin is what I should do. I have made more obscure choices and they have paid off 90 percent of the time (we don't speak of the rest). I do look forward to seeing all the ...

Greetings from a new member


my name is Nikolas, I am currently doing a Master's degree in Byzantinistics and am always looking for ways to improve my command of Greek (and Latin for that matter). I was delighted to discover there is a forum one can write and converse in the ancient tongues, since this is an activity better practised in a group rather than alone.

Greetings from (another?) Australian

Hi all,

I'm an undergraduate classics student in Australia.

For Greek, I am currently reading Thucydides Book 1 alongside the Hornblower commentary.

For Latin, I am reading the ad Lucilium epistulae morales, by Seneca, which are thoroughly enjoyable and come in easily digestible segments :)

I'm using the OCT texts for both. This year I'm also hoping to tackle Thucydides Book 2, Plato's Republic Book 1, and ...

Hello from Arkansas

Hello, my name's Alexander and I'm from rural Arkansas. I found this site while searching for Latin and Greek language learning textbooks online. Some friends and I have decided to start a group for men, young men in our generation specifically, but open to men of all ages, and one of the things we want to do in this group is study the writings of the Greek and Roman philosophers. We also have an interest ...

περὶ τοῦ Κορδύλου


I am, first and foremost, a contributor to the English Wiktionary (under the same username). I regularly create Ancient Greek entries using Perseus, and I've registered for this forum because I too often come across phrases too difficult for me to translate.

Outside of that, my interests include programming, conlanging, linguistics, and occasionally writing.

new member from Indonesia


I live in Jakarta, Indonesia. having been self studying biblical greek for just an introductory level.
yes, my interest is the BGreek. Not sure about classical Greek yet, because I am overloaded with the "more simple koine" already. never exposed to Latin,yet... (If I can maybe I will learn it some other time on the future)

by the way, one of the reason I am picking the BGreek is due to Mounce-Wallace popularity (not ...

Greetings from Brazil

Hello there!

My name is Ivan and I'm living in Florianólipolis, Santa Catarina. I did recently the exams to enter in a degree of philosophy, on the Federal University of Santa Catarina. I was always curious about ancient traditions and cultures and now things began to happen.

Today I don't know nothing about old greek or latin and I hope to acquire some basic linguistic knowledge at first and after that, who knows? Certainly this ...

My name's Trevor Price and I've been teaching myself Latin for about a year now, using D'Ooge, and others. I've started Colbourn's "Latin Sentence and Idiom" a few weeks ago and I'm hoping I can ask questions now and then when I get stumped.

Hi All:

I am an English teacher pursuing graduate study in Latin hopefully to at some point teach Latin at my college. I have finished a Latin Prose Composition class but am working through the rest of BA in hopes of making my Latin excellent, hence my desire to get some advice here. I have quite a bit of fluency in Koine Greek and 7 graduate classes in Greek literature, where I read works such ...
