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 ...

Pardon my senility!

I blame it for why I have not been introduced.<br /><br />Greek I am learning to decipher that famous passage of Homer concerning names of places and how many men and ships they had and too many names of generals to remember afterwards. A passage so tedious and yet a part of our great literature surely must hold some secret!<br /><br />You who know me from the Academy, you also know of my relationship with ...

nearing 100,000! - how about an online contest?

For me 100,000 downloads is a nice and noteworthy benchmark and I'm thinking some sort of 'celebration' event is in order. <br /><br />I would like to write a register to win contest. It'll be free to enter (with a newsletter subscription of course!) and the winner will receive free books that we'll mail to them - we'll ship world-wide.<br /><br />For Textkit, the contest should serve as an interesting way to bring attention to ...

Forum Romanum

http://www.forumromanum.org/index2.html<br /><br />Excellent site. They're building up a library of all literature in Latin down to the 18th century, and have transcripts of The Private Lives of the Romans, Outlines of Roman History, and A Grammar of Oscan and Umbrian. They also have their own Latin Language Resources section, and a genealogy of the Roman gods and goddesses.

A belated introduction of myself.

Hi, I hadn't greeted any of you before I simply began writing irritating post after irritating post; I am David Walker. It is nice meeting all of you. I hope that the inordinate amount of time that I anticpate I will be spending here will be justifiable in some wise. I hope we, all of us sharing the same (or similar) esoteric pursuits, get along famously.

Why Learning is Horrible

I have come to the conclusion that the ability to learn and expand one's mind is a horrible, a dreadful, an awful thing! For example: <br /><br />About two weeks ago, I learned that Textkit existed. Since then, I have hogged, not only the computer, but the phone line also. <br /><br />Three days ago, I learned that there were many sites which would teach me Gaelic. Ever since then, whatever spare time I may ...
