First post introduction

I'm an expat English teacher in Asia who recently has had a lot of time off due to the new year break and picked up Victor Hanson's Who Killed Homer? and it has sucked me in. It's inspired me to dabble in learning Latin (which I imagine makes more sense than trying to learn ancient Greek first) and I got a copy of Wheelock's (6th ed). I'm only at Chapter 1 because I've been ...

Hello everyone.

I'm thinking about learning koine Greek. How feasible is learning NT Greek without a good understanding of English grammar?

Micheal Palmer's Introductory Post

My name is Micheal Palmer. I am the author of Levels of Constituent Structure in New Testament Greek and a number of articles related to applying Linguistics to the study of Hellenistic Greek.

hello, Im new

Hello to all,

I am interested in learning Latin and Greek. I started with Wheelocks Latin but it was not what I wanted. No interaction with tutor and quite difficult to follow the basics. I also started a local taught class with Cambridge Latin course but the class was divided into beginners, post beginners and intermediate and the tutor could not spread herself around and I found it too slow, and costly. Any advice on ...

I'm teaching myself Greek through the Hamiltonian system. Ie., read a lot, and use an interlinear to absorb vocabulary. I am mostly ignoring any independent study of grammar for now. I hope to read enough to make up for that.

Salvete omnes,
I am a linguist of european languages, especially Romance languages, I specialise in French, what motivated me to learn latin was the fact that it(latin) is the root of French and other Romance languages and knowing latin improves knowledge of its offshoots. I have been learning latin for a while now and it is quite interesting :D , Textkit is a very useful tool ...

Hello. I'm a native speaker of English and an Italo-Dalmatian dialect (Italian upbringing here), and I'm from Chicago. I'm currently attending community college, and I do not plan to make a career of anything relevant to this site in the future.

Among the Textkit languages, I'm currently studying Attic Greek on my own. In addition to that, I'm studying Polish, though that's probably irrelevant. I also know Spanish, Portuguese, Modern Greek, and Standard Italian. Since ...

I was watching a video recently and the instructor was making the point that if you are bored, you won't learn. Seems dead right to me. But I am often bored when I study Attic. I am on the one hour a day plan and it seems to create maximum boredom for me. So I am going to redistribute those 365 hours over the course of the year so as to minimize boredom. So while ...

An Introduction

Hello everyone,

I would like to introduce myself: I'm a post-BA Classics/Philosophy/Literature student trying to gain fluency in Greek and Latin in addition to Spanish, French, Italian, German, and English, of course. Spanish and English are my native tongues, although due to the weirdness of assimilation in a spanglish culture, the latter has pushed the former into a corner, to the point that I can read Shakespeare in the original spelling passably well but can't ...
