I tried to post a similar introductory post, but I don't think it went through. I apologize if it did get posted and this is a repeat.
I am a quasi-beginner of Latin and Ancient Greek. I've just completed one year of study in both languages at a private university in New York City. I plan to continue my studies on my own. I hope these forums will be helpful when I come across difficulties in this pursuit.
My Greek class was comprised mostly of seminarians and, thus, was targeted at NT Greek. It wasn't particularly intensive and I don't feel like I've gotten anything more than a fleeting introduction of the language. I'd prefer, if possible, to start with Homer and progress more or less chronological through the ancient writers. I've come across Pharr's Homeric Greek text for beginners, in which the author argues for the use of Homer as a beginning text. Is it practical for me to try to continue with Homer, given that I have some experience with Attic?
As for Latin, I'm quite content with Wheelock. We covered about half of the book and I plan on continuing with it until I finish all 40 chapters.
If you have any advice for me as I begin my self-guided study of these classic languages, I would greatly appreciate it.
