Accademia Vivarium Novum/accepting of female students

Hey everyone, I'm new here. I'm Rosa, 19 years old and from the Netherlands. I recently found out about the Accademia Vivarium Novum, which is an academy in Rome where you can study for one year to perfect your knowledge of Latin, and where you have to speak latin. Anyway, what I also found out, is that they don't accept female students at the moment, as they are located in a building of a religious ...

Introducing myself

***Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I may have deleted the original post by mistake (my apologies if this is a duplicate post).***

My favorite thing in the world is language, in particular, etymology-- a confessed language junkie. My native language is Spanish (I was born and raised in Peru), but I'm also fluent in English (or so I think) and rusty in French ( I used to be fluent many, many years ago, ...

racism in the classical world

Here's an interesting question for you. Was there racism in ancient Greece or Rome? There was prejudice, bigotry, and chauvinism, but was there racism?
I have formed my own opinion on this question.

Please continue discussion here:

a new member, sort of

Sheesh! I had forgotten that I was a member of this group. I'll introduce myself again.
I am a male, 60 years old. I took two years of Latin in high school, but for the rest I am self-taught in Latin and Greek. (I started my Greek with "Homeric Greek: a book for beginners" by Clyde Pharr.) I used my copy of Goodwin's Greek Grammar to pieces (it was a softcover), so now I am ...

Hello and thank you


I am a new member of this forum. I discovered Textkit while I was searching online for a decent Latin textbook. I stumbled on the suggestions for beginning learners and that's how I got to know Latin for Beginners by Benjamin L. D'Ooge. I am gratefully using this textbook now to relearn Latin myself (as I've forgotten most of it since I left secondary school) and to teach it for the first time to ...

Hi everyone,
I'm currently doing my first year of Classics at undergrad in England. I've done Latin at school since age 11, though I've got the typical problem with traditional methods that, though I could recite to you all sorts of grammar, my actual reading ability is far from what I'd want, and so I'm now starting to look into active methods - and I've started doing Greek this year at uni. My main interests ...

Salvete - Greetings from a new member


I am a complete beginner in Latin, I have only been learning in a disciplined way for a fortnight or so.
I have just finished an undergrad degree in English Literature, and my favourite literary periods are those of the restoration and eighteenth century. A particularly prominent feature of literature of this time for nearly any author or poet hoping to make a name for themselves was imitation of Latin poets in English. Alexander ...
