You need to be a member of Latin to add comments!

What do you think about the charge that spoken Latin is a kind of ouroboros--that it's invented for the sake of having conventions of spoken Latin?

Comment by Penelope on June 23, 2016 at 2:35am

Mostly, I'm glad to hear there's a conventiculum in Boston.  I attended one at U. Kentucky years ago.  It was great, but it's better to have these in tourist areas.

Brief article on a spoken Latin pedagogical conference and spoken Latin's wider ramifications for Latin education. Thoughts, ladies and gents?

Aliquis domi?

Had all my grammars out last week to write a note to my old teacher to include with a wedding invitation: "Latina est gaudium et utilis. Convenimus in via sub terram legentes Loebis. Legebam Caesari. Legebat Xenophoni." [and if there's mistakes there, please don't tell me]

Moq, glad to hear you liked it. And yes, Joseph, good luck with your exam, and do share interesting stuff with us!

Salve!

Taking AP Latin 4 in my highschool

Currently Translating the Aeneid for class, while on the side translating Cicero's orations. National Latin Exams are coming up soon.

Love it.

Thanks, I think I'd like a good mix of audio as well as textbook learning...my attention span for textbooks isn't what it used to be!

The Latinum podcasts (audio versions of the Adler textbook course) isn't so expensive, maybe I'll get the first one and see how I go...

Marc: I don't know which is your preferred learning style, but if you like old, public domain text books, check out http://www.textkit.com/

Does anyone know of any decent free courses available online? I'd love to learn Latin, but don't want to invest any money until I know I'm serious.

I'm looking at Latinum now, but looks like the lessons are only available on YouTube... for free anyway :/

Any suggestions?
