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 ...

Iliad and Odyssey Kickstarter by Ioannis Stratakis

Listening to audio is, as I understand it, one of the most efficient means of learning a language. But unfortunately, there is a serious lack of Ancient Greek audio available. Ionnis Stratakis of Podium-Arts has provided some great material but to me the cost is unreasonable when compared to other audiobooks. Many albums, operas, dramas and audiobooks can be found on DVD or CD for less than £10 per hour audio; a fraction of the ...

Introduction

I understand that I need to provide an introduction to post on this board.

I was meditating on James White's slavish adherence to Granville Sharpe's "rule" in 2P2:1 to "prove" the deity of Christ. Having lived long enough along with a Masters in TESOL (some familiarity with human language), I STRONGLY expected this was more of debate strategy rather than genuine linguistic relevance. I have been attempting to find non-evangelical sources (who do not have ...

salvetes omnes!

Hello, my name is Paul. I'm 18 (soon 19) and from Indiana.

I've had no formal education trying to learn Latin, but I have been interested in it for a while and only recently trying to learn it, and I just found this forum today!

After reading Julius Caesar in High School for an English class, I was interested in Ancient Rome, and then by extent, Latin. I also have a hobby of ...

Please allow me to introduce myself

Hello, per the forum rules I will introduce myself and try my best not to come across as an odd-ball.
I have been marginally aware of this forum's existence for years, but for whatever reason have never joined. Now I have a specific question I'd like to ask, so here I am after all. Looking at the board a little more closely, maybe I will have cause to regret not joining sooner.
My name is ...

Salvete omnes,

I've been a long-time lurker at TextKit and, since I'm finally devoting myself more consistently to Latin (and later Greek), I figured I'd finally get around to joining the board. I'm an English Lit teacher who lives in Boston and teaches at an elite private school outside of the city.

After undergrad, I tried numerous times to learn Latin (through Wheelock) and Greek (through Crosby) on my own or with a friend who ...
