learning Latin in Melbourne, Australia

Postby vivitur » Tue Oct 05, 2010 4:20 am

Although from Melbourne originally, I've lived the past 18 years in SE Asia. However, I'm planning on returning to Melbourne possibly in February 2011 and was wondering if there are any Textkit members there who might be interested in sharing some learning in either Greek &/or Latin.
I was a teacher for 30 years, in Eng Lit, History, Drama etc....retired for the past 3 years. Having learnt Latin at school, I've always kept it up and actually increased my range over the past 10 years - especially in Ovid and Horace.
For just over a year and a half, I've been teaching myself Attic Greek and enjoy it immensely. Can now manage some sections of Plato's Symposium and Lysis; Xenophon's Anabasis etc. I'm also exploring some of the Septuagint and later writers, eg Libanius.
I've twice visited Greece; Turkey, Syria, Jordan once each and am hoping to go back in the near future to pursue the Classical heritage

Anyone interested in sharing learning materials/texts and discussions of topics of mutual concern? Perhaps meeting up in Melbourne next February?

Send me any class of Belfast-to-Melbourne return ticket and anticipated expenses, Tony, and I'll see you there next February. There will be TextKit members from there surely. I wonder who.

Mitte mihi tesseram ullius classis itinerariam, Antoni, à Belfastiense in Melburnium unâ cum paucis nummis pro expensis provisis et ibi visitabo ad mensem februarii proximi. Non dubito nonnullos sodales Textkit fori esse Meburnii incolas. Qui sint me rogo.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
