Thanks for the the welcome.
<br /><br />I looked around for other books other than Wheelock's Latin
to do some comparison, but the only books my bookstore carried other than Wheelock were Latin for Dummies
and various Latin dictionaries, so of the books there, Wheelock's appeared the most scholarly. But looking around this board, there appear to be better books out there. Hopefully the combination of the two books I'm using will serve me well.
<br /><br />And you're right; the atmosphere of this place seems friendly.
