Latin Grammar in German

Postby mariek » Sat Aug 09, 2003 2:44 pm

I stumbled upon this site and thought it looked neat and possibly of interest to some of you Latin learners who are interested in German (Milito, you come to mind :) ) ... brush up on Latin Grammar while practicing your German! ;D <br /><br />I'm posting it here first, before the "Outside Links" forum, because I'm not sure whether the website offers much value... cuz I can't read a word of German. :'( So, let me know what you think of the site...<br /><br />http://www.kreienbuehl.ch/lat/latein/grammatik/grammatikx.html

Thanks, MarieK! <br /><br />Whew! What a way to learn to read German - jump in feet first!<br /><br />(Actually, I found a pretty good on-line beginning German course, too, so maybe I won't be as lost as I think......)<br /><br />Kilmeny

I was finally daring enough to look at that German link to Gaelic lessons-it was neat! (Tease away, klewlis! ;)) However, greagach was right-it wasn't hard to find what I was looking for. I know a word of German-three or four, actually-but not enough to learn Latin in German! ;D<br /><br />Keesa

That means I would have more opportunities to practice German... than Latin! :-/ I don't know how German prepositions compare to Latin prepositions. I find I'm still trying to get a handle on Latin prepositions ... when to use a preposition and with which case.<br />

But if you think about it, since you already know a lot of Latin, brushing up on Latin Grammar in German should be a walk in the park... ;) <br />

<br /><br />Really? Learning German is on my "things to do in my lifetime" list. Which online site is this? I'd be interested in taking a look. Perhaps it'll inspire me to pick up German sooner.

I'd be interested in the site, too, although I don't think I'll be learning German anytime in the near future. It's on my list to learn one day, though! <br /><br />Keesa

Great! Thank you, Nihil! Now if I decide to learn German in the next decade or two, I'll know exactly where to go. ;D<br /><br />Keesa

(I found the vocabulary at the top and to the side particularly interesting.) Now, then. Does anyone know of any similar fairy tales in Latin? I am steadfastly resisting any temptation to start German until later...<br /><br />Keesa

Well, this is my first thread in this forum.
I find the www.kreienbuehl.ch website you provided here rather interesting, and it's about BOTH Latin and Greek, NOT ONLY Latin!--which adds to its value.
And the problem I want to ask is where I can find any Latin textbooks written in German downloadable online, just like LFB in Textkit. :?
And I have also read by chance that there are some online radio in Latin, but the URLs given on the forum cannot be connected. Could anybody help me with that?
