I've just been contacted by a developer of a Latin flashcard set, and pass the reference along to our group for review:

Latinum Update

Latinum had a new milestone this week - over 10,000 files were downloaded in a single day.
Since the start of May, 3 905 individual users have accessed the site, from all over the world. The map is interesting, as it shows clearly where Latin is being studied.

What is authentic Latin?

What is stylistic authenticity? For example, I could argue Newton's style is authentic, as is that of any other - authentic for his or her times.

Likewise, the style of those who write on the Grex or on Schola, is also authentic - it is authentic 21st century neo-Latin.

Just as we read Jane Austen and Dickens, no-one proposes that we write in pure imitation of them. Influenced, perhaps, but each writer develops his or her own style, eventually. A fluent neo-Latinist would also develop… Continue

NEW ON 'LATINUM'- FABULAE FACILES

This week, a new feature has been added to 'Latinum ' - reading of easy stories culled form a wide variety of old Latin reading books - these range from Mythology, to American History. At this point, Adler has covered enough grammar to enable users who have followed the lessons until this point, to cope quite well with simple Latin texts read aloud. These will help the users to consolidate their Latin, and will present a wider variety of material.

I do not claim to be a particularly… Continue

THE untold want, by life and land ne’er granted, Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.

It's been a difficult day. My AP students finished up their school year on Wednesday, and I am still grappling with the silence. I have been teaching for 10 years, and I have been close to classes before: my first homeroom class who I saw from Freshmen to graduation, my first Latin class, who I taught Latin I to AP, but now I said goodbye to a class that always worked hard for me, a class that brought me nothing but joy, and for whom I feel nothing but pride. I miss them, and my day seems a… Continue

10 Excellent On-Line Applications for the Innovative Teacher

I found this link when reviewing recent eLearning literature, finding existing and emerging technologies to work with within the context of Classics. While there is nothing in the list dedicated specifically to either Latin/Greek or languages in general, I found a few things that will be helpful to teachers who want to explore new on-line tools for interacting with students in new ways, managing classes, managing… Continue

Latinum Update May 21 2008

Interesting to note the number of users in China and, more suprisingly, in Iran and the Gulf states. Numbers in Africa remain low. South America has recently begun to emerge as a locus with a rapidly increasing number of users.

Horace, Epode 6

Who are you to attack innocent strangers, you dog-- a coward against wolves? Why not turn these empty threats towards me, if you dare, one who will fight back? For like a Mollossian or tawny Laconian hound, a friendly force for the shepherd, I will drive through heavy snow, with ears picked up, whatever beast proceeds. You, once you have filled the woods with a timid howl, can sniff out the sop thrown down to you.



Beware! Beware! For I raise my ready horns harshly toward evil, as the… Continue

Distribution of Latinum Podcast users for first two weeks of May 2008

Curious as to where the thousands of daily lessons downloads from the Latinum podcast's online course in spoken Classical Latin are coming from, I signed up to ClusterMaps. Much to my surprise, there are users scattered across the globe, with predictable concentrations in Europe and the Americas. More surprising were the locations of other users - Mecca, Cairo, Dubai?, Tunisia, Iran, and a number in China, Japan and Indonesian archipelago, and a few… Continue

Epode 5

Here's my translation of Horace's Epode 5



“Oh, by whichever of the gods in heaven that rule the earth and human affairs-- what is the meaning of this cacophony of yours and why do you have a grim face only for me? By your children, if, when called upon, Lucina appeared at true birth, by this empty purple symbol, by Jove, who disapproving of all of this-- why are you staring at me like a stepmother or as a wild beast hounded by the spear?”



Once he had said this with… Continue
