Introduction and Greetings

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here at TextKit. I am a 26 year-old teacher of religion and language arts at an international secondary school in West Africa. My formal educational includes a Bachelor of arts in English, and a Masters in Secondary Education. As far as classical languages go, I took Greek for a while in my undergraduate studies in order to fulfill a language requirement, but beyond a basic understanding of inflection ...

Hey guys

I'm a senior in high school from Pennsylvania. Never studied Greek or Latin until now, but I purchased Wheelock's Latin and the workbook and hope I'm off to begin a fun journey of Latin -- and maybe Greek. I'm basically a complete newb about Greek, Latin, and the classical world, apart from a vague, working knowledge of Roman history.

By the way, the reason I made the account is to answer this question. In Wheelock's, ...

Search engine

The search engine of this site seems to go back only as far as 2012. I tried several search terms (Plato, Livy, Homer etcetera), but nothing comes up before 2012. Which means a lot of information is lost or at least almost unfindable. Do we have some computer wizard on board who can fix this?

Is it a good idea to learn Latin and Greek at the same time?

I was thinking of doing this but I'm not sure. Wouldn't I get everything mixed up?

Introduction for James Rothering

Hello Everyone:

Normally I'd lurk for a while before posting at all, but the "Read Me" seems scary & you must have had some nasty experiences which require such stringent account deletion rules! But I'm happy that the spammers are not welcome.

I just started dabbling with Classical Greek a few weeks ago. I took one quarter of it in college, but didn't continue because it was just too much work in conjunction with what ...

I introduce myself

Hi everybody,
First of all thanks you for opening the doors of the forum ! I am 35 years old, I have a fantastic wife who unfortunately doesn't speak Latin and who doesn't speak ancient Greek either. We have three children - four in a few months. I am keen on speaking about Greek and Latin litterature and I try to improve my Latin and ancient Greek writing proficiency, therefore I subscribed to this forum. ...

No good history of the Renaissance?

Anybody know of a good, general-with- some detail, history of the Italian Renaissance? I am NOT looking for a cultural history-there are too many of those- I mean a good POLITICAL history. I have searched a lot, but it seems all the histories of this period have two focuses (foci, I should say): 1. Art & cultural history and 2. Bios of a few of the famous characters (Borgias, Medici, et al).Any advice? I have ...

Good morning!


Thank you for the admission into your group. Briefly, I'm a first-generation Andalusian raised in New York City. I have an interest in the study of languages. I had learnt some Latin from my father, who attended a Traditionalist Catholic school during his youth in Spain.

I'm also studying Classical Arabic as well.

I'm re-focusing my efforts via 'Lingva Latina, Pars Vnvs' by Orberg. I've completed reading out loud 'Capitvlvm Vnvm'. I'll begin the ...

Geriatric Learner


Am I too old to re-learn Greek? I am British and passed the basic exam in Greek (General Certificate of Education, Ordinary Level) 56 years ago! I have forgotten practically everything in the ensuing years, but now, in my dotage, I have a real longing to recapture the little Greek I had, and perhaps add to it. My life is very restricted as I care full-time for my severely disabled husband so I try ...
