I did a couple years of Latin in high school and some Greek in college but that was two decades ago (God, I'm old). Early this year I decided to take up Latin again (perhaps Greek will come) and have worked through Ørberg book 1 and the first couple hundred pages of Ørberg book 2 (the prose adaptation of the Aeneid and the adaptation of Livy book 1). I'm also reading Cicero's Catalinarians, in a student edition.
Well, I just picked up an unadapted edition of Livy, and I'm depressed at how much trouble I had making even the slowest progress. Obviously I'm a journeyman and not an expert, but it's hard for me to see how to get from where I am now to a place where I can read with something like comfort, if not ease.
Anybody have any words of encouragement?
