Hello from Leeds!

Hello! I'm a Latin graduate who prefers not to count how many years ago she graduated! My subsid then was French. Now I have retired from teaching and trained as a Church of England Reader. Pulling my Latin and church interests together, I have just started learning New Testament Greek, and I'm delighted to have found you! I look forward to some interesting content on your site.

A Homeschooler's Introduction

I'm 15, almost 16, years old and would be in grade 10 in a regular U.S high school. I hope to be able to take the AP Latin exam either this coming year or the year after that; I'm aware that there's a history element to the test and will be taking an OCW semester course for this. The main problem is, I have no teacher and I can't afford a tutor.

For a long ...

Ciao!

Hello to all Textkit members! I'm an italian software programmer and I admit, I've never really studied Greek and Latin :oops: . The reason why I'm here is that for my work (and also for personal interest) I often deal with linguistic origins and etymologies of words... and we all know that 99% of what we say every day comes from these two "ρίζες"... so I hope ...

New Member From NYC

Greeting Textkit Community,

I am an English teacher studying Latin independently. I made it through Wheelock, and I'm up to the 8th Loci Immutati in the back of the book. Sometimes I'll translate a few of Phaedrus' fables for a change. My goal is to gain enough fluency to be able to actually read some real Latin, not just translate it, if you know what I mean. One challenge will be to read Latin poetry ...

Hello

Hi, I'm joining this board because it looks like it would help a lot with my Latin and it's good to have more experienced posters around. In early November of last year I picked up Wheelock's Latin, then proceeded to the Wheelock's Latin Reader, and a few months ago to Caesar's Gallic War.

Hi

Hi everyone,

This is my introductory post. I have been learning Latin for seven years now, and I hope to add Greek to the list. Also, eventually, Sanskrit and Hebrew if I find the time. Particular interests include Vergil, Homer, and, more recently, Greek drama, particularly Sophocles and Aristophones.

Also, I am in my third year of learning Russian, if anyone cares. Я чуть-чуть говорю по-русский.

I look forward to meeting everyone on ...
