Helpful(I hope)Hint

Postby Puella Parva » Sun Aug 10, 2003 1:59 pm

Something I do to help me learn, is copying what I'm working on. For example, my Bible Study is nothing but copying, word for word, the entire Bible. I'm going to try this with Latin (as soon as I've learned a little more), but I'm going to use a slight twist. I'm going to find one of my favorite books, and copy it in into Latin. (If there is any reason why this would be a strange and completely wacky waste of my time, feel free to tell me. I might listen then again I might not :P.) I hope this will help someone. :)

Funny. I was thinking of translating the books of my kids into Latin. I haven't started yet, so I don't yet know what "the ever hungry caterpillar' would be in Latin :).<br /><br />Ingrid

Yep, there's a Latin version of Winnie the Pooh, it's called Winine Ille Pu.<br />
