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.

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.

Dicere et facere sunt res non eaedem.

Well, people - that was meant to say "saying and doing are not the same..." It looks dodgy to say the least but "si linguae exercitae sunt, intelligentur bene"...I think (I couldn't say spoken, you know why) Correct as you see fit.

Many people say "I'm going to learn this language and do this language" but in my experience it goes on for a while then the flame extinguished.

It comes at a time when ...

Aeneas and Beer

We're reading Vergil in my Latin class and I thought you all might be interested. The topic of the day was "Would you ask Aeneas out to have a few of beers? Why or why not?"
