New to the forum

I graduated from LSU in Dec., 1971 with a BA in Classical Languages. I have little used it since. Now, at age 66 and retired, I would like to reacquaint myself with my former studies. I look forward to being a member of the Textkit community.

Hi. Just found this site. I have worked through Mastronarde and am now on Lesson X of Pharr / Wright.
In three more lessons I will be starting on selections from the Iliad (I prefer the Odyssey)! I am retired and devoting myself to antiquity for the simple reason that I enjoy it. But it would be nice to contact fellow antiquaries and share the pleasure.

I visited Pompeii and Herculaneum when young, also Ephesus ...

Spam "Important announcements"?

There are two posts from Mann_Youth that look to me like spam that have appeared in the User Control Panel.

Mann_Youth has not made any actual posts so I wonder if this is a bot.

A Friendly Halloo from South Africa

Hi all!

I am really glad to find websites like this one - I love languages and I want to learn as many as I can, unfortunately in South Africa we do not have Language Electives like in USA. We only learn English and Afrikaans.

Well, I'm off to start my journey of Latin and the Roman culture! And then I'll pay a visit to the Greeks, I think! ...

Χαίρετε ἀπὸ Καταλονίᾳ

Using Latin Series

Using Latin is a series of three books which takes the student from basic grammar(not just Latin but English as well) to longer and more difficult stories plus there is a plethora of illustrations. I used the first book myself back in the 60s when I was a freshman in high school. I always thought these books gave a good balance between the grammar and real reading experience as opposed to many books today which ...

Salvete / χαίρετε

Hello all,

I'm a Latin teacher from Sydney, Australia, who has also taught Greek in the past although I'm quite rusty with it. Currently attempting (thus far in vain) to get a Greek class going at my school, and thus reading a good deal to keep in practice. I imagine that I will be involved with the Greek board mainly, although I'm happy to help with queries on the Latin board as well.

Best regards, ...

Forum for Biblical Hebrew?

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone here is aware of any boards similar to these ones but for Biblical Hebrew. The idea would be to find somewhere that would have a specific place for grammatical questions (often even basic ones). Anyone aware of anything?
