Duolingo-like Website for Learning Latin?
Hi, I was wondering if any of y'all know of a duoloingo-like website, so I can learn Latin.
Thank in advance!
This guy has a bunch of Latin learning videos on Youtube, he's pretty good:
Look for more videos, he has like 168 in this series.
There aren't any websites like Duo that I know of for Latin.
Some old-fashioned (and good) textbooks are available online with keys, and some on textkit, which you could work through on your own. There's a great e-mail group that does a lesson per week (or per two weeks) from a Latin textbook, which starts a new group every so often. There is also Schola Latína Európæa Úniversális in líneá, which works all the way through Assimil's Lingua Latina sine molestia's 102 lessons, each year starting in September--it's really excellent, too. These latter two are good for keeping yourself on track, as the assignments are scheduled.
[added] Oh, and there's an informal series of lessons started here on Duo.
Latin is a marvelous language. Best of success with it!

Unfortunately, there is not one. :( If I ever become fluent enough in Latin, I will certainly contribute to a Latin Duolingo course, as I think that would revive a lot of interest in the language. Wheelock's Latin is generally considered to be the best text to teach yourself. You will want the textbook and workbook, and you can receive the answer keys via email. You can find some fun Latin books and stories to read, including Hobbitus Ille and Harri Potter. Do take note that Latin is not easy. The language is very complex in terms of grammar, but the Spanish and French you already know will help immensely. Make sure you read all Latin aloud, once you learn pronunciation (which is quite regular). One thing I love about Latin is that is sounds very beautiful, and irreversibly poetic. Dive in, don't be afraid to become confused, and have fun!
