New Forum User - Grk NT Student (Self Teaching at Home)

Hello All --

I am a NT Greek Student trying to teach myself greek from home. I have read all of I John and am starting GJohn. I'm learning pronunciation by using Vasile Stancu's web site. I began my studies by using Summers Greek Grammar but quickly got overwhelmed with paradigms. So I switched to Dobsons method and then aquired other grammars just to have them around for reference. (Mounce, Robertson, Wallace, Croy, Peter Jones, ...

Taking up Latin with Reggie

Hi. My name's Greg, and I've recently returned to reading Latin with Reggie Foster by way of his OSSA book. I took Latin via Wheelock at university and, quite frankly, hated it. (I still suspect the biggest problem was my professors, but it is what it is now.) I, however, loved Latin itself, and was always disappointed that I never learned it as well as I wanted to.

I've returned to Latin with Reggie's system, ...

salvete et χαίρετε!

I heard mention of this forum in the FB group Teaching Latin for Acquisition so I thought I would check it out. I am a high school teacher of Latin and Ancient Greek. I am looking to improve my own skills in speaking the classical languages so I can do it more and better in my classes with my students. I have attended a conventiculum and a biduum to get the feel for it but ...

I joined, but then left just as quickly

I guess I joined because I was hyped up to learn Latin, even though I didn't necessarily have a profound interest in learning the language itself but more for things that used the language (fictions / games / Roman army / etc). I know boards like this are not super active because of a lack of eager learners, but if you want to read more, it is ironic what I am about to say.

Introducing myself

I was chasing up references to authentes and was linked here to a post on Alexander Rhetor. Having read through the post and very insightful and helpful comments, I decided to join up.

I have been conducting my own research into the authent- family through a new approach which separates the adjective, authentikos, derived from auto and hentes, away from an entirely different semantic family derived from auto and entea. This gives rise to the ...

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, ...
