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.

I'm new to learning Latin and I'm planning on doing ancient Greek, too. I've studied French and German at the university level, though I didn't graduate. I've also done some Irish Gaelic on my own - Dia seo isteach! Lastly I'll say that I'm a Newfie living in Vancouver, BC and am looking forward to learning from everyone here at Textkit.

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 ...

Greetings from a Dane

Hello,

I came across Hans Ørbergs Lingua Latina books a few years ago. I'm trying (again) to get going. Currently working on chapter 6.

Cheers,
Nina

Hi, French here

Hi,

Studied latin during 4 years, but never managed to love it.
That forum seems interesting, so I'll try to learn new things.

Thanks in advance :)
