Ego discipula Latinae Linguae sum. Nomen pura at tortura habeō. (derivatives of my name)
I am currently in my second year of a Latin course offered by my homeschooling board using Lingua Latina by Hans Orsburg and I am really enjoying learning new words and phrases through it. I found this site while searching for what tunē meant and then felt really silly afterwards. :D ...

How to type in Greek on a MacBook?

Hi, I just wondered if anyone could help - I would like to type in Ancient Greek on my laptop (which is a MacBook, if that makes any difference), for example in Google (I've already figured out how to type in Word) and on this forum?
