Introduction and Lingua Latina

Hi -

My name is Juli and somehow I never made an account on the forums even though I've been reading them on and off for years (possibly over a decade).

I want to learn Latin (and Greek eventually) but I've never been very successful in getting beyond the very beginning steps of any book. My current try is using Lingua Latina with the workbook as well. This combines 2 of the ways I learn ...

epubs with CAPITALS intead of italics

Greetings all. It's been a while since I've been here, (I found Latin too hard in the end) but I hope this post might be useful to someone, and isn't too far off topic for this board.

For Christmas I bought myself a Kobo Glo eReader, and started reading free epub books on it. However I soon became frustrated by the way they used CAPITALS or _phrases in underscores_ to indicate that the original paper ...

Salvete omnes καὶ χαίρετε πάντες...

I'm Barry Hofstetter. I teach classics a The American Academy and Latin at the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew School (both in the greater Philadelphia area). I'm also a moderator and relatively frequent contributor to the b-Greek forum. I started doing both Latin and Greek way back in the 20th century and never stopped. I have a deep and abiding interest not only in the literature for it's own sake, but ...

Latin Translation for a tatoo

Hey everyone,
My name is Samantha. I am getting a tattoo saying "just have a little faith" in latin. I joined the Latin Discussions page and posted in there a couple of weeks ago. I also paid $10 to a latin translation service online known as "Classical Turns." I know that it is an ancient language and sometimes these languages cannot be translated word for word. However, both the translation service and the Latin Discussions ...

I am a homeschool mother. My 10th grade son and I are working through Excelibility in Latin Grammar and also the Legamus Caesar reader. Prior to this he worked through Henle Latin 1 and 2. I went through Henle 1 and 2 with his older brothers and so I am a little rustier. I am realizing that he cannot do this on his own, so I am going to join him. I am joining this ...

Hello! My name is Morella, I'm 22 years old and I live in Hungary. I've always been interested in learning Latin, and now it seems I will have to acquaint myself with Ancient Greek, too. The reason for the latter is that I'm writing a story set in ancient times and I will have to insert some Greek phrases... *sigh* The things I do for art... :D ...

introducing a newbie

Salvete, pax vobis y'all! Ego sum Franciscus de Texas. Pls pardon the (probably) faulty Latin. Anyway, I have always had a desire to deepen my scant knowledge of Latin, which I first encountered in a liturgical setting as a boy and later in some of my readings into classical history. Hope y'all can help with the occasional translation request.

Gratia vobis.

Moving Textkit Website To New Server


I will be moving the server which hosts Textkit.com During the transition, for about 24-48 hours the forum will be read-only.

The near 15 year journey that Textkit has taken when it comes to web hosting costs is pretty amazing. We started with hosting being so expensive that Miami University had to host our files for us. It wasn't that long ago that the server was $250 a month, then we moved to $50 ...
