My brief introduction

Hi, my name is David and I am from Mexico. Currently I'm learning latin with an excellent, but hard course called Gramática Latina, by Julio Pimentel, a renamed mexican humanist. I also use the Wheelock's reader and the FRPSI as complements. I wish to contribute you all and to pass a good time.

Salvete omnes!

I am currently working through Lingua Latina with alongside CLC. Compared to many others here, I'm a newcomer to Latin with around 1 1/2 year experience. I've been lurking around text kit for quite a while and it was the helpful people here that convinced me to study from LL (it is well worth it), currently up to chapter IV. I hope to some day become reasonably fluent in reading original Latin authors, ...

An Introduction

Hello all,

As I just registered, I should introduce myself. I'm grimsie. I'm coming back to Latin after what feels like ages. I was never very good with Latin, but somewhere along the way I forgot what little I used to know. So now begins the work of re-learning the language. I'll probably be working from M&F's Intensive Course and Orberg's Lingua Latina at first.

I started learning Old English about a year ago. That ...

From July 12-19, 2017, we will use ancient Greek as an active language of communication to talk about everyday objects and events and to discuss selections from a wide ...

New member introduction

salvete omnes! So, here's my obligatory introduction post?

I'm a beginner in Latin, currently learning with CLC and LLPSI. I am also interested in learning Greek in the future and hope to one day be able to read Classical writings in their original languages. (And maybe write poetry in Latin/Ancient Greek as well - over-ambitious?) I'll mainly be on Textkit to ask questions/for grammar help (so expect one from me soon, I guess).

Cheers!

Hello, . . .

My name is Al Kidd. I am a retired electronics technician and DC power technician. I have taught myself to read the New Testament in Greek, and the LXX, too; however, I want a greater proficiency in reading classical Greek texts, too. I think this resource (Textkit) will be very helpful.

Affordable Greek and Latin Texts

As it happens, the French take Classics very seriously. I just discovered this line of affordable bilingual texts from the French publisher Les Belles Lettres:
https://www.lesbelleslettres.com/collections/54-classiques-en-poche

They also have lines of more high quality texts (for varying prices):

If you can put up with the French textual apparatus and facing translation, it might be the thing for you.

As I understand, there are thriving communities of classical studies in other countries as well. Does ...

Staying motivated

So far this year I've been having a lot of trouble motivating myself to read, and this is starting to take a toll on my Latin. It's not that I have no interest in reading -- whenever I do I feel better for it and I get something out of it intellectually -- and in a way this feeling down is silly because I've done a bit almost every day this month, though mostly small ...
