Learning Latin

Post  Daedalus on Fri Feb 07, 2014 8:51 pm

Is there anyone on here who could help me learn Latin? I know there are a few people who speak Latin on this forum. Thanks! Smile

I'm a TA for the Latin language program at my university, and I'll likely be taking that to being a full time teacher at the middle school and high school level within the next year. I'd be happy to help you in any way that I can — though, admittedly, it's difficult to teach a Classical language entirely online.  Neutral 

I've worked with both the Oxford Latin Course and Shelmerdine's Introduction to Latin as far as textbooks go.

I tried to look in my local area but my school doesn't have any classes on it and no one I know speaks it or even has a minimum understanding of it. If you have any advice on learning it though I would be happy to comply! Very Happy

I'd be more than happy to help you in any way I can.

It's my day job and the focus of my degree, so I ought to be able to assist you.  Wink 

I do apologize for the delay in responding. It didn't show up for me that you had answered.

It's fine. Do you have any tips for the basic foundations of the Romantic Languages and how to learn it?
