Revision as of 10:52, 19 October 2020 by Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus
- Longum iter est per praecepta, breve et efficax per exempla (Seneca)
- Textkit is a collection of texts, resources, services and tutorials for both Latin and Greek. Textkit is the Internet's largest provider of free and fully downloadable Greek and Latin grammars and readers. There are also many other areas of Textkit which can help you learn Greek and Latin. There is a Forum where you can meet and learn Greek and Latin with other learners. There are study groups where you can move through a textbook at a set schedule with others. With a newsletter subscription you can download a collection of Greek and Latin answer keys. Textkit Vocabulary lets you can create entirely free online vocabulary courses complete with quizzes.
- The LatinStudy List
- The LatinStudy List is an open mailing list dedicated to the study of Latin, including Classical, Medieval, and Neo-Latin authors. Both beginners and experienced Latinists will find something of interest here. It is shared by multiple study groups. There are typically several levels of beginners' groups as well as advanced groups translating passages from, say, Caesar or Vergil, and some composition groups reviewing grammar. A coordinator sets the group's agenda, then collects and collates assignments. These collations, or side-by-side listings of each group member's answers or translations, are posted directly to the list for discussion. Most questions are answered by the other list members, not necessarily those in your study group. This mix of experience levels, where people switch between the roles of student and instructor, makes the list a particularly effective learning environment and contributes to a sense of community.
