Learning Latin?

Rate this Entry
Hello there. I should start off by saying that I had Latin back in high school, but unfortunately we only got from the first until the third declensions of the nouns before the year ended. I've been interested in continuing to learn the language ever since, but I don't know where to start.

So, any tips/advice?

    See if you can get a hold of the textbooks for the Cambridge Latin Course - they're what I used when I did it by distance learning in high school. Otherwise there are plenty of online resources, though I wouldn't be able to point you to anything in specific off the top of my head. Also to consider: buying a Latin dictionary (translations to and from) and a copy of Kennedy's Latin Primer. (Or read it online.)

    You probably won't be using it for much in daily life, but it's still a fascinating language to learn. Good luck to you.

    Yeah, but I started when I was nine or ten, so I don't have a lot of advice for an adult learner.

    Only getting you to the third declension in a year is kind of trash, though.

    This was actually the catalyst for me ask for tips on getting back into Latin: my brother bought me one of those Collins pocket dictionaries as a joke Christmas present.
