Latinum's free podcast, as I mentioned before, is closing. There were many loose ends on the podcast. All the completed projects, as audio books, are available on DVD, and I will continue to produce new materials and release them on disc.
The free material will be released on YouTube (channel 'evan1965')
The site for latin audio on disc is http://latinum.org.uk

As mypodcast.com has finally become unable to finance the servers of mypodcast.com, the site will be closed on December the 1st. I will not be starting up the service on LibSyn, as there are financial implications. Instead, I will release new material on DVD,
and will also be working more intensively on Latinum on YouTube.
Latinum on YouTube now has over 3 000 subscribers. I have decided that from now on, whatever I produce for the audio podcast, I will also re-record for the youTube site. I had been doing this before, but more haphazardly. My general approach to my suite of websites is now more systematic - one audio book at a time. At present, each youTube video gets fewer downloads than each audio podcast, but as I develop the YouTube site, I expect this will change.
At the moment, not…Continue

I am currently recording Sanford and Scott's Junior Latin reader at Latinum at mypodcast.com
So far I have read the series of stories about Perseus, and am just coming to the end of the Hercules cycle.
The Latin used in this reader is simple, and makes for easy reading - ideal comprehensible input for both intermediate students and teachers who want something pleasant, but relaxing, to listen to.

A few milestones were passed this week - Firstly, my booklet 'Declensions' has turned out to be the most popular title on the Tar Heel reader website, being over 50% more popular than the next title on the list according to Gary Bishop, who runs the site. It says something, that a dry book on declensions has beaten the Alphabet, Obama, and Lady Gaga!
Here is the list of the most popular titles.…Continue

A historical perspective on Latin/Greek teaching : Evan der Millner This topic is a very wide ranging one – and a brief essay such as this, can only hope to cover the subject giving the barest of outlines. In this essay, I will mainly concern myself with what could be called the Rudiments of language education. I will also point out that some 'new' methods are actually not new at all. We are fortunate in knowing rather a lot about how the Romans went about teaching their…Continue
