A Classical Language Learning Forum

Online courses

I am new to this group, and I hope someone can assist me with my question. I would like to learn New Testament Greek, but I do not live in an area that offers these courses. I have been looking at a few colleges that offer Greek through distance education (e.g. Moody Bible Institute). I would like some opinions on whether or not a person can learn the language adequately without interaction with a professor. ...

What study techniques do you use?

I am thinking about changing the way I am studying and I was curious how other people study. I have not been using any sort of organized study plan. I was previously just doing the excercises in each chapter of Wheelock. I also have the Workbook (3rd edition) but was not using it yet.

I am considering the following method:
1. Read the chapter
2. Do all the excercises at the end of the chapter ...

Instead of this complecated system of representing Greek,

case for titles

In titles, should the case be nominative? I very often see titles using the de+abl., but that is not what I'm referring to.

I seem to remember thinking that titles should use the accusative, but I can't remember where I'd read that...

thanks much...

edited to add, I'm referring to titles of books/writings/etc. (not people). For example, if I wrote a paper on bread, would it be titled "Panis", or "Panem". (ignoring the possibility "De ...

Esteemed Universities for Classical Studies

I'm vouching for my cousin here, who is in the process of looking to transfer from his current university. We somehow came upon the topic, and he mentioned that he is very interested in majoring in Classical languages, perhaps a double major with Philosophy. Browsing online and trying to find Universities that are highly esteemed for their Classics program (besides say, Oxford) has proved fruitless.

I figured this would probably be a really good place ...

Translation: Toast to John Adams in Amsterdam, 1782

Hello to all,

I was reading the diaries of John Adams (2nd US pres) during his stay in the Netherlands and noticed the following entry:
