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 ...

As per the joining instructions, here's my self-intro.

I found this forum after discovering to my chagrin that the LLPSE audio doesn't go beyond capitulum xxxi in classical pronunciation. I was trying to find out why. Does anyone know? (Besides the sad passing away of the author, I mean; and that wouldn't preclude the option of having another voice complete the set.)

For me, registering here is happily ironic in that it was from Textkit ...

Help with text please

Hi Folks,
I am creating a polyphonic setting of a text for S.A.T.B. a cappella choir.
The original English text is

"The Past provides; we give thanks.
The present lives; we give thanks.
The future has hope; we give thanks."

The Latin translation that I am working with is,

"In praeteritis cavetur; gratias agimus.
In vitae nunc; gratias agimus.
Spes in futuro; gratias agimus."

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Robert B
