haha! I clicked on Fay's profile because it was curious for someone from Los Angeles to be taking latin... and she is in my class! :lol: She is the smartest one in the class too. She is usually the first one to be done with our exams. I'm glad that she is starting to fall in love with latin and not just take latin for credit like many other people. Anyways, we've just finished chapter 14. Do you guys think a chapter and a half per week is too slow or too fast for a classroom?

At first I expected Latin to be much harder than German, which I took last year, but I'm doing pretty spiffy in my class. :)

It's certainly a small world, isn't it! I wonder how many other of your classmates have already made their way to Textkit. You'll certainly tell them about this wonderful site, won't you? :wink:

Hello all,

I'm currently working my way through chapter 8, I think. I'm working alone and I have a lot of time on my hands, so I've been doing about a lesson a day. In fact, today I was able to buy some note cards and note books to better document my work (very exciting!!!). Some people may think it's pathetic to get so excited about such things, but then again, some people like Emenem. To each his own. I'm expecting my progress to slow down as the lessons present increasingly complicated material.

I'm currently in Angers, France, but on my way here I dropped by Portland Oregon and took a peek at their classics section. I was surprised to find a copy of the first Harry Potter book, translated into Latin. This lead to the web search that brought me here. Is there an awakening interest in dead languages?

I remain,
Sable de Nuit

PS I can't remember if the following tag sentence is correct or not. Don't stone me if I made some errors. I'm just starting out...Nom d'un chien...

Apparently so =) Latin will never be dead though! +)

New here

Postby Cleo » Wed Dec 31, 2003 3:12 am

Hi. New person on the block. I'm actually in chapter 1 (just finished, minutes ago) so I'm pretty much the newbie with Latin!

I homeschool my kids, and my 6 yo has been begging me for Latin. So he's starting Prima Latina when we get the material, and I got Wheelock for myself. I've always wanted to learn Latin, but there was always something else to do first. Now's the time!

BTW, sable_de_nuit, I'm also French speaking. Having a hard time finding proper translations in English though. Latin is closer to French than to English, so sometimes the French translation can be literal (or almost) while the English one is quite different. I am finding out that I am not as bilingual as I thought I was. This may be turning into an English lesson too.

I'm new to the Forum. I actually completed the 3rd edition about one year ago last October. It was an edition I had started 23 years ago in High School and never completed at the time. So, many years later I made up my mind that I was going to finish it once and for all. I'm glad I did.

After finishing Chapter 40, I read throught the Loci Antiquae but then skipped over to Ritchie's and the "Roman History" readings on Dale Grote's site (actually, I bought a hard copy on ABEBooks), just to see how I measured up to "Second Year" college level reading. Then, I went back (with a 6th edition of Wheelock) and read through the Loci Immutati.
For me, the leap from the LA to the LI was quite dramatic, in terms of difficulty. Part of that, I'm sure, is due to being a self-teacher and not always picking things up correctly the first time. Still, I think Wheelock was a good foundation, and I frequently revisit chapters here and there just to reinforce certain concepts and forms. Plus, since the 6th edition has so many more readings per chapter there's a bit of new ground to cover.

I'm working through Wheelock with an online study group. I'm on Chapter 4. I also use the Cambridge Latin Course and Teach Yourself Latin to break things up. Anyone from Indianapolis out there?

I'm using Jenney with Wheelock as a supplement, following Jenney's chapters, but I think I'm on chapter 23 (give or take a few ablatives :) )

I started Wheelock's about a week ago to review my Latin. I'm in my third year, but the teacher I had for the first two didn't make Latin very fun. The teacher who replaced her in January made it very fun, but I wasn't up to the level of Latin that he was teaching us at. Actually, I didn't have much trouble with Catullus, but Horace (whom we started reading recently) is way over my head. Hence Wheelock's. I'm on chapter 7 as of today.
