Salve

Post by ChrisM » Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:23 am

I'm Chris; married with two sons and an amazing granddaughter; 63 and retiring in May :D

I love languages, and after two and a half years, am intermediate with my Spanish.

I have long wanted to learn Latin, and would like your views. I'd prefer not to drop Spanish in my quest to learn Latin, but being a realist about the life-long effort required to become properly proficient, am of the opinion one language at a time is enough of a challenge.

Because of cost, I plan to study at home, realising how much harder that is.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Welcome to Textkit. In the library section we have several grammars, some with keys. Hopefully, you'll find them useful.

Welcome to the forum :-)

My two cents on the Spanish/Latin situation:
There are some easy-going textbooks like D'ooge's Latin for Beginners or Elements of Latin (both available, with Keys, here or at archive.org. Why not give it a go for a couple of weeks and see how it goes? Maybe Latin won't conflict that much with your Spanish schedule.

Good advice, Shenoute. It'll be especially viable when I retire shortly. Gratias tibi ago. Chris
