Good English/Latin site for helping to learn Latin

Postby nellymatrox » Tue Nov 04, 2003 7:33 pm

Hi all!

Just FYI, when I was trying to learn Latin, one site that really helped me was www.LatinVulgate.com , especially the Proverbs section. It's a parallel Latin / English Bible site and the Proverbs book especially is especially simple to translate and read.

Anyway I'm looking now for more advanced sites that have English and Latin side by side, to help with my learning. Can someone recommend any book sites that are like this?

Thanks,

Nelly M.

Great site! Have you put it into the "Outside Links" forum yet?

Yeah that is a good way to figure out what something means, if you are looking for direct translation/verification and not just reading. What also works well, and what Textkit has a lot of, are genuine texts with lots of cliff-notes. You might try those instead if you can't find what you are looking for :idea: .
