Hailing all Testkit users! :)

I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a 19 year old student from Canada and am trying to re-introduce myself to the world of Latin. Thank godness I work in the biggest bookstore chain in Canada (Chapters/Indigo/Coles etc.)! Everyone here seems very friendly and willing to share their knowledge which is great since I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. I am currently working through Wheelocks 6e and of course, the omnipotent BLD!

Pensees

Does anyone know where I can find a good copy (preferably a free ebook online :P) of Pensees, by Blaise Pascal, in French or Latin? I've read him through in English, but I would like to read him again in French, and in Latin, once I'm advanced enough, if he was ever translated into Latin. <br /><br />Keesa

I am worried for you people!

Benissimus, God blesses ;) him, lives in California and has not heard of "Nuthin' But a G Thang" by Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. Others have also questioned the existence of this classic track. <br />I could not believe this! <br />Personally I really be digging neither D.R.E nor Snoop D-O-double-gizzle; however this song from seemingly ages ago captures an era ubi I n'was que six ...

Promote Latin

http://www.promotelatin.org/camwscpledu ... #materials<br /><br />This is more for teachers but learners will also find much value. It contains downloadable pdfs of fun posters and brochures intended to help promote latin classes. There are a number that I'm going to print off and keep around the house ;)

Italian Grammar For The Beginner

I intend to learn Greek (JWW) within the next couple of years at least up to intermediate level; however I think myself presently to be incapable of doing thus. For, accompanied by Latin, it would be too intense.<br />I want to learn Italian this year also. Knows anyone, of a beginners Italian Grammar (accompanied by exercises and vocabulary). <br />I find Dr. Benjamin L. D'Ooge's grammar so simple, so compact with its welcome want of ...

Hi there

Bon soir.<br /><br />I, Ansgar, am neophytically joining this forum today with great expecations. I hit on this source while searching for some web sites on "classical" Greek, which I have set my mind to re-learn after a break of, I believe, 21 years ("ante Keesa nata," I am afraid) and only two years of high school exposure.<br /><br />I found browsing the forum encouraging in a hard-to-determine manner; it must have been the exuberance ...
