A Classical Language Learning Forum

Is Caesar worth reading? Is Horace?

This started in another thread, but it seems to have acquired a life of its own and I thought I would spin it off. Original thread is here: http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic.php?t=1397.

Say, Ulpianus, do you propose that Caesar's writing is, for the modern Latinist, merely functional?
I'm a fan of him myself. Brilliant, impeccable Latin, and, really, not hardly as boring as some, who've perhaps read the first few lines only, make it out ...

Xairete

Hello,

I am a Greek myself and the reason I am writing you is because I have some questions for the people who learn ancient Greek.
1) Do you know how does what you write sound like?
2) Why do you use all the (/- symbols between the words? What do they mean?
3) Hopefully I can understand what you write in "ancient Greek" but why don't you use Greeks fonts? That way you will ...

Hello!

I'm new here, just thought I'd introduce myself! I'm trying to learn Koine (NT) Greek and Latin both, so reccommendations on texts for NT Greek study would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and I already have D'ooge's text for Latin, so I'm working on that. I have a little experience with Greek, and none with Latin (just started today.) Hope to hear from all of you guys soon!

the Symposium and Shakespeare

Hi everyone,

Very glad to have found this forum today. Long ago in high school I studied Latin and liked it, but haven't taken it up since then - just the odd word

articles on teaching ancient languages to children

Can anyone link me to articles on teaching ancient languages to children, particularly OLDER ones geared to the idea of a child becoming fluent in both Latin and Greek BEFORE entering university?

There are a glut of books coming out about a classical education for children, but they are not right for our family. The focus is on LOTS of writing, outlining and reading fiction. My math orientated child is willing to do a BIT ...
