Does anyone know any free websites for learning Latin?
I'm currently learning Latin on a Memrise course, but I'm not sure if it's reliable because they used Memrise's dictionary.
duolingo be a sport and start a course on latin please!! i have always wanted to learn latin!!
I am also trying to learn some Latin and would really love a duolingo course!
I'm looking to strengthen my Latin skills - having learned several years ago. Can pronounce well, but my comprehension is weak. Please Duolingo, add Latin - the base of French, Spanish, and Italian (the Romance languages!).
I agree, besides Spanish, I came to this site thinking it would have Latin.
The first one is very trustworthy, but I don't exactly like it. You can't drill the vocabulary into your head. You just look at the words and the translation and look at it over and over again until you can remember it. The second one is just a bunch of phrases. :( I'll try to use the first one.
You can always make drill exercises yourself. Use Memrise to create your own course or just write your own paper flashcards. Those work great for drilling vocabulary, it just requires a little bit of effort. But since you want to learn a language, it should be very possible to do to little for improving your results.
There is plenty of free material online, Doctor B., and what to recommend depends on what sort of study is most effective for you.
This book and its answer key are good if you like to write out exercises. It is very thorough. You can also find (for sale) text and key combined here (The Art of Everyday Latin), which is available on amazon.com and lulu.com and at this site.
Along the same lines, you can find plenty of old text books online w/ answer keys in free .pdf copies. Look here under "Latin Books with Keys," and in the Latin section on this website (only one or two have keys, here).
A very good method is Lingua Latina per se Illustrata, which is the first book in a two-book series that teaches Latin only in Latin. Here is the first chapter read by the book's author. There is software (which includes the audio) as well as supporting materials. This, too, is not free, but I would say it is well worth its price if the method suits you.
There are many exercises available online. These exercises are useful even w/o the book they are designed for (which is an excellent book, espec. the 3rd ed., which doesn't have extra bells and whistles). These are in French, which you are studying here--but save them for later I would say, unless your French is very good. If you are interested in Latin/French materials, post on my Wall, as there are a few other resources that are useful.
If you want to be part of a study group, beginner groups are started here a couple of times a year. They usually use the primer by Wheelock mentioned in the prev. paragraph. Each September a free beginner group commences, using the older ASSIMIL Latin method (which you must buy to participate). I assume they will offer a course next September, too.
This doesn't exhaust what's available, but I've listed too much already. Have fun! Latin is a marvelous language, and very useful to know.
The very best and most enjoyable is the course by Father Reginal Foster. You'll find the material (a few PDFs) here: http://frcoulter.com/latin/index.html ; and don't forget to check his radio programs, there's a link from this page. Father Foster was the Vatican's own official Latinist, a colourful, entertaining personality - his radio shows are a blast.
bro, ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ love you, thanks P.D also, i gave you a ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Lingot, you deserve it
He goes slow and steady, and lots of repetition. I've found it very helpful.
I would love to learn latin too. A lot of languages have their roots in latin and most of the time you can "work out" a word if you know latin. I wish I had paid more attention at school.
My school doesn't even have Latin... in fact it has very little in terms of language classes
I would be great if Duolingo added Latin to their course it would be so interesting!
I took Latin in school. I know the grammar very well (aŭ tre bone(Man I love Esperanto)) , but my vocabulary sucks. Any good sites or apps. Ego carpe diem. Vale!
I agree, I've wanted to learn latin for what feels like forever. That would be awesome to have it on duolingo! Por Favor duolingo, add latin please...
PLEASE ADD LATIN!!!!!! My son doing Common Entrance 13+ is loving your French... the Latin would be fantastic.
I absolutely agree! Recently I have been interested in Latin and have been trying to find a free and reliable website. I would definitely take a Latin course if they created it on Duolingo.
please give me latin duolingo, it is the base for a lot of languages and I really want to write some traditional poetry in Latin
Would love to see Classical and Vulgar Latin as well as Ancient Greek here on Duolingo. Some universities do offer these languages for free however but I do like the ways duolingo and innovativelanguage help me learn.
