I live in Auckland, New Zealand, and am a full-time student this year, and very happy that I was given the address for textkit.

Anybody Have Any Good Jokes?

My joke vocabulary lacks quality. Does anyone have a good one? Post em here!

Here's two to start

A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale has hit
Mexico.

Two million Mexicans have died and over a million are injured. The
country is totally ruined and the government doesn't know where to start
with providing help to rebuild.

The rest of the world is in shock.

Canada is sending troopers to ...

Classical Obstinacy

I have on several occasions praised the novel "The Last Samurai" by Helen DeWitt in this very forum. Here's a brief quote I think most of us here will identify with.

"HC" is the name of a character. I'll not give the background, but will say that he's in trouble:

Learning two languages at the same time

Does anyone has any experience of learning two languages at the same time?

I've recently started latin, but I would like to actually start spanish as well. Seeing as both the languages are related, is there an optimal way of learning both the languages?

thanks.

What now?

I've finished reading De Bello Gallico with quite a good understanding of it
(though some parts still trick me a little) and I've read two or three poems of catullus too. What should I try now? If someone could give me some advice - both on poetry and prose - I would be glad.
Thanks

Trouble with a verb

Hi everyone, I'm thinking out loud on something which is troubling me a little, hopefully you guys can put me right if I am talking rubbish.

Like a lot of English football clubs, my local team (Sunderland) have a Latin club motto which appears on the crest.
The motto is:

translate a club motto

Hi there - i know this is my first post and i'm already asking for help...
I was just wondering if anyone can offer a translation of my cricket club's motto... It's traditional to have it in Latin i know, but it's been a few years since my Latin GCSE's and i'm a little rusty..

We' re called the squirrels and our motto is "protect the nuts"

Would this be an imperative? I'm lost..

Thanks ...
