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 ...

I learn Ancient Greek for two years. It is difficult because I haven't teacher. So I learn Greek only with books. I do like Greek grammar. It is endless. It is also full of surprises! I think, it is important to cooperate with other Greek learners. I want also practice my Greek and I need to learn new useful words.
I'm sorry, my English isn't good...

Learning what language would help ESL students more?

There are more and more ESL students getting interested in classics today, especially in ancient Latin and ancient Greek (at least in my university, including me XD). Do you have any suggestions for those students who cannot use English 100 percent properly but are still willing to learn those two more advanced languages? And learning what language would help us the most in terms of having a more profound understanding in English and all Roman ...

Hello all, my name is Tom.

I am sixty-six years old, and grew up in Boston, MA. When I was young I was fascinated by the ancient Mediterranean world. I loved watching what became know as "sword and sandal" movies.

When I entered middle school I wanted to take French, but instead I was put into the Latin class. The poor woman who was a teacher was one of the most boring teachers I had. ...
