Thank you, Latin course volunteers
Thank you for all your efforts. It was a revelation to see how many of the words in Latin have been adopted in English. Of course, I know there were some, but this short course showed me many more than I suspected.
I shall continue on my own to develop better reading skills with Ørberg and a battered copy of Ullman that I picked up on Amazon for $5.
I suspect I would not have hated Ullman's text so many years ago if he used the natural language approach typical of Duolingo.
Now I will go out trying to trick someone into thinking I am smart by dropping a few Latin words and phrases.
I took a home study course, but never quite completed it. So I took it up again in Duolingo! yes! I am progressing pretty fast. But I also am studying Hindi on Duolingo. But informally studying Sanskrit via various childrens stories when available in english and sanskrit. And also "spoken sanskrit series" video. Go figure, gluton for punishment, yet I am soooo totally enjoying it all! especially latin. I might actually master a second language!
