Greetings to all

Post by WangWei » Fri Jun 02, 2006 4:46 pm

Hi everyone,this is WangWei from China.I'm new here, but as you can see I've been a spectator for a while and found both materials and discussions on this site very helpful.
I'm very interested in Greek and Latin.The enthusiasm began last Semptember when I got a copy of Wheelok's Latin and finished it in several months by self study.
Now I'm working hard on the Pharr book downloaded from this site.Starting by May 1st I've covered 35 lessons so far(one per day),and I find Pharr a great book for lively touch of greek early as the 13th lesson you can read real Homer. Gratias ago amicis textkiti for such a wonderful book.
I'm a college student in Shanghai. In my university there is a good tradition in chinese classic study, but frankly in western classic languages, we have almost none, so I have to rely all on myself and the internet and mostly on textkit.It was a real joy when I first discovered this site.

As chinese culture is somewhat mysterious to you westerners, so is Helas and Rome to us. May our understandings of one another be deeper and more solid.

I am always impressed by people who speak one language and then learn Latin or Greek with a textbook written in yet another language!
One day I am going to visit China, it has always been a fascinating place for me. We had many Chinese friends of our family when I was growing up and I think they gave me a life-long interest in the place, not to mention a love for the cuisine!
Good luck with your studies.

Well, I major in Philosophy in Uni Fudan(if you may know it).Reading Aristotle translated in Chinese is a real disaster, no matter how hard I tried, the paragraphs just didn't make sense in a logically whole. So Aristotle is one of my aims of learning Greek.
