How to improve rusty schoolboy Latin

Postby snesci » Mon Feb 23, 2009 6:39 am

I am new to this forum and would like assistance with finding a website that teaches latin (preferably free of charge) to someone like me -namely I have a smattering of Latin from School from over 40 years ago.I found a site called learnlatin.tk which seems quite good -has anyone else used it? Also can someone recommend a good online dictionary to assist me with translating some documents I have been assigned to translate from Latin to English
Many thanks

There is a great downloadable dictionary here. http://users.erols.com/whitaker/words.htm

I do not know of any websites, but I would suggest Lingua Latina, which is a reading immersion program. Presumably, you have some grounding in the morphology and syntax, so you would benefit from it.
