I've been coming on this forum for about a year now, just looking around and reading random threads. I am a college student who just completed my first year of Elementary Latin and Ancient Greek. I've decided to stop taking these classes and continue with my studies on my own time. The goal is to be able to read the classics, though I'm nowhere close to achieving that level of fluency any time soon. The Greek class I took was comprised mostly of seminarians and, thus, was aimed at understanding the NT in Greek. Although I've heard that the NT is the easiest text for beginners, I'd prefer to start with Homer and progress more or less chronologically. I've come across Pharr's book for Homeric Greek and his introduction argues for the use of Homer for beginners. I plan on using that text to continue my studies.
As for latin, my class used Wheelock which I was happy with. We only progressed about halfway through the book, so I plan on continuing with that text for now.
Does anyone have any advice that might come in handy for my self-guided pursuit? Is it practical to hope to continue with Homer, given my basis in Attic?
