Introducing myself ("Novus discipulus sum.")

Salvete, all!

My name is Toby and I'm an American living and teaching English in Germany. For the last several weeks (New Year's Resolution) I've been trying to teach myself Latin using the "Lingue Latina per se illustrata" book, as well as the Cabridge Latin books and the Rosetta Stone website.

My interest in Latin is twofold: Ancient Rome has long been a source of fascination for me, and I think it would be cool ...

Re-Organizing the Forums

Paul Derouda suggested the possibility of re-organizing the forums, so I thought I'd go ahead and start the topic for all to weigh in.

As many of you know, when Textkit was initially started by Jeff, the site's main purpose was the digitization and distribution of public-domain texts related to learning Latin and ancient Greek. At the time (2002) there were precious few such texts out on the internet. The forums were designed mainly to ...

My Introduction

I found Textkit while searching for translations of M&L missing from the utoronto site. I taught elementary and intermediate Latin in a Catholic seminary for several years and then was away from it for some time. I now have the opportunity to study again, so am using M&L as a review. I hope to respond and contribute where I have knowledge and to learn from the observations of others. (Especially to confirm where I think ...

Currently I teach High School Latin and am very excited to ...

introducing myself

Hello Textkit members,

I have been learning Greek since 2008. My basic text was the JACT "Reading Greek", and after a year's study with this I joined the Open University for the level 3 course, which was then available, using the same book. From late 2009 I have read variously bits of Homer, Plato, and most of an anthology also by JACT. At the moment, having discovered that my composition is so poor that it ...

introducing myself

I'm Gary. I studied Latin at school but sadly let it lapse, and although i've long regretted this i'd never quite got around to doing anything about it. I first began to look at Greek many years ago, but unfortunately the textbook i had back then was not very good and i became discouraged. Of late, however, my interest in sncient languages has been rekindled as an offshoot of other interests, and i've been ...
