Vancouver says hello

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 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 ...

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

Salvete, anyone who decides to read this!

I took 2 semesters of Classical Latin in college and have proceeded to become the TA of my college's Latin program. Don't let that seem like self-adulation; the truth is that my college doesn't really have a Latin program (only one course of elementary Latin is offered per semester), and my being offered the TA position was more of a step for my college to keep its Latin ...

Hello Everybody!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Stephanie and I'm 25 years old. I am currently enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University and am majoring in creative writing. (Seriously tempted to switch to be a history major!)

Greetings from a new Latin learner

I have come to learning Latin (and if I persevere, later, ancient Greek) in mid-life, as part of a longtime quest to give myself the broad education in the humanities, and specifically in the Western classical languages, that I never had.

Why the humanities? The simple answer is that I have always liked to read, travel, and learn about other times and places. And as my formal education was in maths, sciences, and engineering, I ...
