Good morning!


Thank you for the admission into your group. Briefly, I'm a first-generation Andalusian raised in New York City. I have an interest in the study of languages. I had learnt some Latin from my father, who attended a Traditionalist Catholic school during his youth in Spain.

I'm also studying Classical Arabic as well.

I'm re-focusing my efforts via 'Lingva Latina, Pars Vnvs' by Orberg. I've completed reading out loud 'Capitvlvm Vnvm'. I'll begin the ...

Geriatric Learner


Am I too old to re-learn Greek? I am British and passed the basic exam in Greek (General Certificate of Education, Ordinary Level) 56 years ago! I have forgotten practically everything in the ensuing years, but now, in my dotage, I have a real longing to recapture the little Greek I had, and perhaps add to it. My life is very restricted as I care full-time for my severely disabled husband so I try ...

New member, learning to read Epic Greek

Hi, just dropping in to introduce myself and say hi, and thanks for running this forum. I recently started reading Beetham's Beginning Greek With Homer. I have never learned any Greek before. I've been lurking here from time to time and found some great info, and I might want to post a few questions. I'm unlikely to be answering any hard ones for a little while though!

new user learning greek, saying hello!

Hi all! I'm a new user and just wanted to drop in and say hello to introduce myself (and also to follow the forum rules).

Anyways, here's the cheat-sheet version on me: my name is Greg, I'm 24 and got my BA in Linguistics and Japanese lit a few years ago. I actually initially wanted to do a PhD in Japanese literature focusing on Japan's equivalent to the Classical era, but wound up deciding the ...

Introductory Post

Hello (I guess I should write Salvete),

I have been reading this site for some time but have never posted before. I am nearing the end of Wheelock's textbook and so in a couple of months will be looking for a good selection of Latin texts to read. I'll describe my studies and ask for some advice in a topic where it would be appropriate.

I have always been interested in the ancient world and ...

Beside, I just started to study Old French, it seems ...

Hello everyone,

I have looked at many threads on this forum for a long time without an account. I was taking Latin in school at the time, and I found that I had a passion for foreign languages in general. I didn't need any help, I was simply curious how people were learning Latin without a teacher. I found this one guy on YouTube, Deka Glossai, who read hundreds of pages of Latin and had ...
