Hello from New Zealand

Hello, I am Katie, and this is my first into post to show I am real!

I live in NZ but was born in the UK. I had a wonderful opportunity to have a traditional classical education, but messed things up badly at school. I spent most of my high school years protesting against the imprisonment and confinement of a sector of the population based on nothing but age (school....) I therefore ended up woefully ...

The Lark of Dusk

I come by my interest in learning Latin by a somewhat roundabout route. Once upon a time I had a strong interest in the 11th century King of England and Denmark, Cnut. This led to an exploration of Old English, which led me to an American college classics department website with the motto, 'Keep Dead Languages Alive." I first examined their material on Ancient Greek, but it seemed far too difficult for a man who ...

The Latin appeal (it's addictive)

Hi everyone,

I am a Latin teacher who fell down a rabbit hole into the world of the Romans. I took Latin in junior high and Italian in college. When I became a teacher and my school needed a Magistra, I was called on to fill the position. (My administrator said, "Latin, Italian... they're basically the same thing. You'll be fine!") I have survived, but have always wanted more training. I was never able to ...
