Thanks for all of the warm welcomes! Episcopus doesn't bother me, as I was taught to be forgiving of the less fortunate
I don't expect to teach myself Latin from Wheelock. But I do expect
to give myself a headstart with learning Latin in a classroom setting.
And if all I accomplish is to learn more details of English grammar, then
I'm ahead of where I started.
Are there any computer programmers reading this thread? It appears
that the logic I have learned from designing software may help in
learning Latin. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether there is
a true benefit to having the software background?
