A Classical Language Learning Forum


http://www.hattrick.org is an online soccer game where you have to buy and sell players, train them, set up the team's lineup to win your league, being promoted to the higher division.
At present almost 500 000 people from 88 countries in the world play it. I find it very very funny, also because there's an active community where you can discuss about the game and other things (even completely OT).

Dulce Et Decorum Est

I have just started studying Latin and I was wondering if anyone could explain a couple of questions about the grammar of Horace's Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. Firstly, I assume 'mori' is some form of infinitive, but I can't find which form it is.

Miror quas de religione sententias habeant alii hoc forum frequentantes. Meo iudicio religiones nil praeter superstitiones sunt quae iam extinctae esse debent.

Ecquis religionem defendere vult?

Does Anyone Know the Acoustic Guitar?

I'm going to be taking lessons for it in a few days. I got my guitar yesterday. It's black. I can only play a few simple melodies so far. I'll have to wait until properly instructed. However, I have been taking piano for 10 years so i'll have the advantage of being able to read music. Any tips for this beginner?
