First, great website! I have visited on again and off-again over the last several years. The last time I seriously attempted to learn Latin was about four years ago. Since that time I have settled down, bought a house, had a kid, and started moving well into my 30s. These things, I increasingly realize, are equal to saying I will never return to grad school to pursue a Ph.D. in history. Since finishing the Masters in 2004 I have pursued numerous hobbies but have yet to find something that satisfactorily fulfills my academic fetish. So I believe that I will give Latin another try, and I hope that you all could answer a few questions for me.
I possess the following:
Wheelock's Latin, 6th edition
workbook for Wheelock's Latin, third edition
Wheelock's Latin reader
Benissimus' Wheelock's answers (printed out from this WebSite a few years ago)
my questions are:
Will these resources be sufficient for me to get a good enough grounding to have modest success translating a page of text from something like one of the Loeb classical library editions?
Would you suggest any other resources?
Has anyone used these particular editions and if so what kind of routine did you use?
I own a couple of the Cicero Loeb's that I picked up cheap and read the English, would you suggest any other editions for someone starting out?
Thank you for your time, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
