Hi all, just thought I'd introduce myself. I've just started my third week at a six week Latin paper at Victoria University in New Zealand. Finding it really interesting so far - certainly lots to learn. Looking forward to the stage when a can rip an old text open and start getting a decent gist of it - maybe in a few more months :)<br /><br />Is anyone else here at a similar stage of their learning?

I may be at about the same place.... I just finished a fourth semester of Latin from University of Waterloo in Ontario. But since I did them via correspondence, I find my vocab and grammar are a tad rusty. (Did the first two courses in 92/93, the next in 94, and then this one.....) We plowed through Vergil's Aeneid, Book 1, and I'm now working through Cicero's De Officiis on my own. It is **very** slow going, but I'm slowly speeding up.....

Heu Odysseus!<br /><br />So that's where the currents finally took you, half way around the world from Greece to Wellington, New Zealand. I've been looking for you ever since you left; glad to know where you are!<br /><br />Hope to find you again soon,<br /><br />Polyphemos 8) <br /><br />(it's the closest thing I could find to a smiley with a dark patch over a single eye)<br /><br /><br /><br />Milito, <br /><br />aaaahhh, the joys, the pleasure of reading slowly and carefully! What better to do with one's otium than to read and think about what one is reading. :)

Interest is the most important thing... Though it may be easier for you to learn with a Chinese system? I don't know how widespread the study of Latin is in China, though. But if you have any questions, I'll do my best to help.

Hi Ody!
I am going to be a lawyer and I just found out that the most aluent lawyers know latin pretty fluently because there are alot of Latin Terms used in Law cases. I will be able to totally throw myself into Latin and French when summer school in about 2 weeks.
