As requested, I am posting a quick note as a new member.
My primary interest is Greek (all dialects), which I have been studying since 1998, but also Latin. I have taken numerous classes at UC Berkeley Extension with Dr. Christo, and have also worked independently with her. I started with Homeric, then moved to Attic and Koine. I have also assisted her and done some independent tutoring of lower level students.
My interests and struggles are common ones. Reading Greek fluently as opposed to mechanical and painstaking decoding; vocabulary acquisition; making sense out of Aristotle. (I can read the Anabasis at full speed but every time I pick up Aristotle I quit after a page or two!) I hope I can both help with people's struggles as well as receive help with my own.
The appellation was my teacher's idea, I promise not to sling too much!
