D'Ooge

Post by Socrates the Cyborg » Sat Sep 09, 2006 11:09 pm

Hello. Because a professor has told me it would be better to learn latin first and ancient greek after that I have started working on the D'Ooge text. I am a full time student just starting out with the latin in my spare time but I am interested enough to see if there are any others that would want to accompany me. From reading the posts here that doesn't seem too likely but I thought I would throw it out there anyway.

Hello. I am also interested in learning Latin in my spare time and have downloaded D'Ooge. I am not certain I can do this by myself. Well, ok, I lie. After taking a brief look at the text I am sure I cannot do this by myself. Are there others out there who are just at the beginning like me?

I don't know how much we could do to help eachother with just the two of us. I posted a question about the key and got very prompt help so it seems there will be support from the advanced speakers if we have questions or problems. Other than that I have gotten through lesson 10 basically. Good luck.

I've picked up a copy of Wheelock's 6th edition so I am using that one right now. They seem to cover the material in a similar order though of course the vocab is different. I have learned from past experience with self teaching that it is often quite good for me to use multiple text books. So I will probably keep looking at D'ooge and hopefully Ceasar sometime in the not too distant future. So if anyone is still interested in having a partner or group member for D'ooge, I'm still interested. Thanks.

Couldn't find a key, but anyone wanting a pdf of D'Ooge's Elements of Latin can get it from G'Oogle:

Elements of Latin

The scan quality looks excellent (which is not always true of these).


There are a few other downloadables for you D'Ooge lovers:

Second Year Latin
Latin Composition for Secondary Schools
De particularum copulativarum apud Caesarem
Caesar's Gallic war: (Allen and Greenough's edition)
Colloquia latina: Adapted to the Beginners' Books of Jones, Leighton, and Collar and Daniell


There are also two that you can read online, but cannot download as pdfs, for some reason:

Cicero, select orations
Selections from Urbis Romae Viri Inlustres
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

Not downloadable outside the US, I'm afraid.
