Hello, everyone

My name is Bingley and I am sinking back into my ancient world addiction. <br /><br />I studied Latin and Greek to A Level at school, but seem to have forgotten most of what I ever knew.

May I introduce myself?

Skylax omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.<br /><br />As you see, what matters in my case is the use of the English language. But it is an opportunity for me to train a little and for you to exercise skills in linguistic deciphering.<br /><br />As a former Greek and Latin teacher, I spend years teaching rudiments of both languages to French-speaking children in Liege, in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Now I'm retired, living in a green ...
