Re: Learning Greek: Where to start?

First off, thank you both for your replies. I don't think you realize how much I appreciate it. In regards to both your responses, I have a few questions. What constitutes a single year of Latin (I used Wheelock's and Lingua Latina). I really like the points both of you brought up about learning two...

Learning Greek: Where to start?

Hey everyone, I've been interested in classics for about a year and a half or so. I started teaching myself Latin last year, but when school started in the fall I had to give up on it because it was too much with all the AP Exams I had. I've recently been getting back into it and I've grown interest...

Re: Wheelock's answer key?

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. I completely understand why there is no answer key here; I often find people in my school neglecting doing actual work and just copying it from online resources. Once again thank you for the response and I appreciate you wishing me good luck.

Re: Cleobis and Biton

Thank you very much guys. Yeah I apologize for the typos I got home late last night and was so tired, but I wanted to do some studying. I really should have put more care into typing it.

Cleobis and Biton

I couldn't find any threads with this story from Thirty-Eight Latin Stories so if someone doesn't mind, can you check my translation? I don't know how to type the macrons on a keyboard so I apologize, but here is the latin: Cleobis Bitonque erant filii Cydippes. Cydippe erat sacerdos deae Iunonis. V...

Thank you very much for the help. I understood most of it, except I didn't really get the part about Lingua Latina.

Translation help

Hey everyone, I've been trying to learn Latin for quite awhile only doing it when I had free time which wasn't very often. Now that I've finished my summer work and all the stuff I have to do I've been trying to slowly go through Wheelock's textbook spending about an hour and a half a day reading an...

Wheelock's answer key?

Is there an answer key for Wheelock's seventh edition available anywhere? I read that the original answer key was taken down at the request of the publisher and if needed one could be obtained by emailing the publisher. However, I emailed the publisher two weeks ago and still have no response. I'm s...

Re: Learning French!

Thanks guys, I really like all the advice that you gave and the sites you supplied. Sorry to drag it on more, but do you think it would be a good idea if I got a small book of like grammar review and used that to learn the grammar. Then use that knowledge to do translations, kind of like a grammar-t...

Learning French!

Hey everyone, I've recently begun learning Latin and I'm using Wheelock's text to assist me. Along with Latin I've been learning French, and although I'm not sure it's good to be doing two languages at the same time, I'd really like a text to assist me with this too. I know this is a Latin and Greek...

Re: The Curse of Atreus

I'm only starting and this is from the companion book. I'm on chapter six in the seventh edition and that's the story for chapter six in the thirty eight Latin stories book. Do you recommend that I don't use the thirty eight Latin stories book? I know most of the paradigms and I've been looking over...

Re: The Curse of Atreus

But who do the small sons belong to? I get that it was my brother, but then there was no genitive for the small children. Is fratris in a genitive form of a declension not yet introuduced by Wheelock's? Sorry if I'm not making much sense I just really would like to get this correct.

Re: The Curse of Atreus

The main issue I have is it just didn't make sense to me. I don't really know the proper way to translate as I've been doing this on my own and kind of just went with what worked. My way of translating the sentence "Quare filios parvos mei fratris necabo secaboque." is just defining each word with t...

The Curse of Atreus

Hey everyone I'm new to the forums, but I'm really excited that I've found them. I'm trying to learn Latin on my own and have to say I find it quite challenging. I really have issues translating the complex sentences and more of the longer ones. I'm having a lot of trouble with this story, I can fig...
