I would join it if someone DID start it. Am I correct in saying that there is no Latin study group?

We have no Latin groups at all yet.

Actually, there are many online Latin study groups but not at textkit. It may be wrong of me to advertise for other websites using this forum, but the education and the needs of my fellow Latin students always come first. A Latin study group based on Wheelock 6th edition will be starting soon in October. Please see the following:

http://www.ravendays.org/latin/lists/activities.html

group: Wheelock 2004 Beginners: (WH2004 Viridis)
Text: Wheelock's Latin, 6th ed., ISBN 0060956410
Coordinator: Tim Haas
Assignments:
First assignment due Tuesday, October 12

And if I get enough responses, I will start a new study group using M&F for those who are interested in an accelerated group.

It's not wrong at all. The only thing that I find rude is when someone creates an account solely for the purpose of advertising and outside group or resource and does not participate in this forum. I'll delete those posts.

hey, is there going to be a group or not? I've not touched the text for quite a while now so I fear I've forgotten much. :P

If there is to be a Latin study group formed, someone other than me would have to organize it. With church, work, and family, I do not have the time necessary to do it properly. Is there anyone who might be willing to tackle this task?

I wish I could but I am really very busy and am behind on some projects which I already got myself into. I could help look over assignments and give explanations/advice, but I don't have the time to organize a curriculum and present the whole thing as an instructor.

Excuse me for intruding on hallowed Wheelock territory :oops: but if you’re not going to form any other group, what about a small Horace study group?

The syllabus would consist quite simply of 5 well-known odes (numbers 1.4, 1.5, 1.9, 1.11 (the carpe diem one) and 4.7. Objective: to get to know them thoroughly. The poems speak of love, time and nature and are easily accessible to modern sensibilities despite the occasional classical allusion. They don’t turn up in most readers because editors are afraid Horace’s word order is too difficult for us. It’s not true.

The general idea would be to hone Latin skills and end up with a ’joy for ever’. We could also include a couple of Catullus poems for variety.

Is it difficult to ’organize’ a group. What’s the normal procedure? Do we need an ’instructor’? I know these poems more or less inside-out myself (only as enthusiastic amateur :D of course) if that’s any help.

Just a thought.
