Welcome to the Latin Forum
This forum is here to provide help to those in the process of learning Latin, and also to discuss topics specifically geared towards Latin and Rome no matter what your level of education or knowledge of Latin. Post as much as you like or just lurk around, but please do make your posts meaningful. If you feel you can help, then please do offer your advice to others. Please be considerate and respectful. Please familiarize yourself with the rules of whichever forum you may post in.On none of these forums may you post homework exercises or assigned translations and ask for the answers. Participants in the forum are encouraged to help others and ask for help, but everyone is expected to show the consideration to put some effort into their own work instead of dumping it on others, especially with first-time posters. Post your own efforts along with your assignments, explain your difficulties, or do not ask for help at all, unless you have a valid reason. We do sometimes offer free translations for personal purposes, but it is completely up to the posters whether they want to answer the requests. This is not a free translation website.
If you wish to introduce yourself, please do so on the Open Board

*If you have a question/topic regarding a certain book or the exercises within, please post it in one of these book-specific forums:Latin for Beginners, by D'Ooge
A fine book provided for free online by Textkit and the text used most by those learning Latin from Textkit. Moreland & Fleischer's Latin: An Intensive Course:
Another highly praised and very popular coursebook. It is very intensive and thorough, as the name suggests.
