Salvete - Greetings from a new member

Hello,

I am a complete beginner in Latin, I have only been learning in a disciplined way for a fortnight or so.
I have just finished an undergrad degree in English Literature, and my favourite literary periods are those of the restoration and eighteenth century. A particularly prominent feature of literature of this time for nearly any author or poet hoping to make a name for themselves was imitation of Latin poets in English. Alexander ...

Salvete Omnes

I am an excited new member.

I started learning Latin in January through the LLPSI series. I am currently reading Roma Aeterna with great joy, and I hope to continue my progress with this exquisite language to the point of mastery, and then nose my way into attic Greek.

I am grateful for this community of classicists, autodidacts, and great souls.

-Peter

new member to Latin forum

Hello, I'm new to the board. I do occasional Latin translation, and sometimes require assistance. My regular Latin troubleshooter has grown quite infirm, and I want to spare him the burden of answering my questions. I hope this board can serve me as well as he has.

Scholae aestivae in Italia:
2nd-16th July, 2017


Montella, et gelidi valete fontes,
et silvae, et nemora alta castanetis.
Tunc me frigoribus tuis tenebas,
Montella, alpigenum e choro sororum
una nobiliorque laetiorque,
cum Canis rapido aestuabat ore.
Janus Anysius
(Iani Anysii Varia poemata et satyrae,
ad Pompeium Columnam cardinalem,
Naples 1531, f. 25 v. – 26 r.)

What are they, and whom are they for?
The Scholae aestivae in Italia offer an intensive Latin course at ...

French Wheelock?

Salut mes amis qui parlent le français ! J'apprends le français depuis Décembre parce que moi je pense que les langues étrangères sont très intéressants, et il y a deux ans, j'ai commencé apprendre le latin à l'école intermédiaire, et je suis tombé amoureux des mots étrangères. J'ai complété un manuel par le nom de <<Language Hacking French>> et maintenant je parle au niveau B1. Mais j'ai besoin d'autres livres puisque je voudrais parler couramment ...

Hello!

Hello everyone!

My name is Louise. I'm a law student living in Germany, though I won't be situated there for much longer, since I will move to London in a few weeks- so excited!
Since I currently have a little more free time on my hands than usually, I have decided to study classical Greek, because apparently, I am simply incapable of relaxing and enjoying some time off like a normal human being. ...

Greetings

Hello everyone,

I just began learning Latin and thought it would be interesting to be part of the community since I have learned so much from this website.

But first let me introduce myself.

I am a native Spanish and French speaker and to me the ultimate goal in learning Latin would be to read fluently great books originally written in Latin.

I have read quite a bit of research in the field of language ...
