A Classical Language Learning Forum

I know I said no more politics, but...

...I am very upset!

Why must a little girl have to set up a lemonade stand in the richest country in the world to raise much needed funds for cancer research. It sucks!

This little girl , Alexandra Scott, of Wynnewood, Penn., died today of her disease: cancer. She was just 8!

Here's the link to the story: www.cnn.com/2004/HEALTH/conditions/08/0 ... index.html

And ...

Audio

I'd like the traditional (old) Catholic prayers in audio Classic Latin. It is important because most Catholics appear to learn Classic Latin before they learn the Italian pronounciation.

I wish people were less shy. No one seems to consider themselves "expert enough" to make audio books. I found one woman who dared to be the "expert reader" in Greek on a Lutheran site, offering her Greek audio for free, but Latin speakers appear to hide ...
