Vivarium Novum

Post by adrianus » Thu Jul 01, 2010 1:44 am

I haven't noticed any pointer on Textkit to these things on the Vivarium Novum site, so here is one to audio recordings (readings of classical extracts), plus another to multimedia resources—videos really—(a number of which are based on Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata).

Nexum ad haec (in situ Vivario Novo) alibi in Textkit foro non animadverto. Eâ ratione, ecce nexum ad nonnulla impressa sonituum in sermonibus latinis (lectiones excerptorum è scriptis classicis), unâ cum alio ad scaturigines multimediales—taeniolas seu visifica justa—(quarum numerus è cursu Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata nomine constant).

To me, the videos seem to be examples of lessons as an aid for teachers doing their lesson plans. Although they were very cute (especially the younger teacher, rawr!), and I kind of wish my latin tuition would have been as «fun» and interactive.

An interesting note for everyone is that they, of course being an Italian site, use the Italian pronunciation of Latin rather than the restored classic. Exempla gratia, ancillæ is pronounced /anchille/.
Här kan jag i alla fall skriva på svenska, eller hur?

Hunhh...

The videos are kinda neat ... watched the one for capitulum primum and the one for the current chapter that I'm on (capitilum ūndecimum). The accent is very jarring, but hey, the Romans are their direct ancestors, not mine, so I'll cut 'em some slack. I just don't know if the videos would help me with Lingua Latina. Thanks for posting the links, though!

Definitely well worth visiting and returning to. But I don't understand why the chapters are spelled "Capitolo" instead of "Capitulum" or CAPITVLVM" or even, for that matter, the dat/abl "Capitulo".

"Capitolo" is in Italian, not Latin.
Italicè non Latinè est "capitolo".

Shouldn't that be "capisco"? :mrgreen:
