The most common method still used is learning grammar, getting a couple of examples, move on to the next grammar points. If you have no knowlege of grammar, as it is, I'd highly recommend you reading up on either English grammar if that is your naitive tongue, or that of the language that is. Noun, adjective, adverb, verb, pronoune, relative pronound, grammatical case, gramattical voice, gramattical gender, accusative, dative, are a couple of key words that are handy to know.Parsifal wrote:Greetings to all,
My name is Nathan, and am evidently interested in learning both the Greek and Latin language. I am an absolute beginner who has neither an understanding of the clear methodical approach that is needed to learn the classical languages nor do I have a general idea as to where I must begin - hence with any luck ... someone on this forum may be kind enough to point me in the right direction in regards to "learning the basics" in step-by-step manner?
I shall be attending my regional University mid next year to thus further my study of the classical languages. However, I wish to be first and foremost acquainted with the languages and am thus searching for help on this forum - I am sure there are many of you here on this forum whom have quite an extensive knowledge of the classical languages, so I am relying on you.
Whatever help any fellow forum-dweller can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, and I don't think you have to be clear and methodical, just do whatever works for you. Most important is motivation, everything else is second to that.
