Why take Latin? Mr. A answers your FAQs (pdf format).
In general, the links on this page are organized as follows:
There are other uncategorized links below as well, but the subheadings may help you find what you're seeking:
LATIN ONE (back to top, although you're almost there)
(There are more exercises for the textbook here than at any other sites out there in cyberspace. NOTE: keyed to the American edition.)
(This page contains the principal parts for every verb in the textbook Ecce Romani 1. It includes variant forms as well.)
(Many of these also directly linked on my Ecce Romani pages.)
(There are likewise more exercises for the textbook here than at any other location in cyberspace. NOTE: keyed to the American edition.)
GRAMMAR ON MY SITE (back to top)
VIATORES (WAYFARERS), TAKE NOTE:
I have organized these grammar pages in a way I have found useful in working with my own students and in having studied and taught Latin over the years. For example, pages may use the circumflex symbol ^ over a vowel to indicate a macron (long mark). Your teacher may wish you to categorize or learn the material differently.
Find help with participles, infinitives, the supine, ablative absolute, gerunds and gerundives, deponent verbs, and reduplicating verbs. Coming soon: semideponents, inchoatives, and frequentative verbs.
LATIN THREE (back to top)
(Welcome to the world's only page for the classic Lillian Hines text!)
AP CATULLUS / OVID (back to top) AP VERGIL'S AENEID (back to top) All kinds of Aeneid materials: summaries, practices, reviews of translations, AP materials at virgilius.org
There are so many great sites with links and resources out there (many of which appear here) that I feel no need to reinvent the classics internet. For various reasons these links have proven useful and reliable. Enjoy.
Check out Ephemeris, the online Latin newspaper from Poland. One potential caveat (depends on who you are): For headings under "Religio," scilicet "Ecclesiae Catholicae." The Latin Library (Watch out for the "wavering" use of u/v, sometimes even in the same text, e.g. Aeneid, which freaks out my students. Otherwise, there's no more complete resource on the net.) Useful site from Britain, but I would prefer if it were called "Some of the" rather than "The" Classics Pages (the site owner has translated Harry Potter into Ancient Greek). Diotima, "Materials for the Study of Women and Gender in the Ancient World." Exhaustive collection of links and onsite research, but last updated Nov. 25, 2005. E. L. Easton Latin page, where you will find online audio Latin, Latin in movies, textbook resources, online courses, promotional materials, and more. Easton also has great links for other languages at the same site. Classical texts, many unavailable elsewhere, with great internal and external links at LacusCurtius (texts page)
Recognized by the Discovery Channel for excellence, "Jay's Roman History, Technology and Coins Site," a.k.a.
Romeweb, now available in archive only, is worth a look. Livius, self-described as "Articles on Ancient History," and deserving of the appellation: from Romans in Holland to the cursus honorum to messianic figures in turn-of-the era Judaism, it's there. Rome at BBC, materials including women's roles, slavery, famous individuals, gladiators, and an ancient murder mystery. Maps Page at the Dalton School (same link as above) Tour the Roman Forum here (a gift from a Danish traveler who has made the results available in English). Take another tour of the Roman Forum here (courtesy of a project of the students and teachers at the Lyceum De Grundel--Goeden dag en hartelijk dank, guys! I've been to and through Hengelo and Enschede on the way to Apeldoorn and think I can even pronounce them approximately correctly.) Check out the reliable links in Ancient Greek Myth, constantly vetted by the Berkeley Department of Classics. Find detailed, if hard to follow, family trees, standard epithets, as well as much more at the Theoi Project (Don't look for Roman information here.) My Myth Class at Marquette (based on Morford and Lenardon), contains direct links to many of the OUP resources + other online tools and practices. Nice, short versions of gods and heroes at Mythweb Small, but cool site on Greco-Roman Origin Myths at the National Gallery of Art (clickable images with art history lessons, worksheets, etc. You can check out this and other packets--slides included--for an entire school year.)

Great multilingual online scholarship from Dictynna
Need images for, from, of the classical world?
1. VRoma Image Collection (a fully searchable collection, amazing in its breadth! Further details at VRoma above. Di tibi plurimas gratias agant, Barbara McManus!) 2. World Art Kiosk at SJSU (50, 000 images, classics and more, easily searchable. Thank you, Dr. Kathleen Cohen!) 3. Classroom Clipart (I've linked to the Ancient Rome collection, but there are numerous other areas available for free classroom and web use with proper attribution)
Need general images for vocabulary building?
1. UVic's Language Teaching Clipart Library (1, 500 "basic vocabulary images" in both transparent and white backgrounds available in this easily searchable collection of daily life gif images. Web-based use requires two simple acknowlegments/links. From the makers of Hot Potatoes freeware.) 2. Virtual Picture Album in the Less Commonly Taught Languages Center at UMinn's CARLA (acknowledgment for use of these resources is "appreciated" but elsewhere expected for these photographic jpegs from around the world; scenes of daily life in many cultures.) (Need to convince someone of the value of classical studies in general, and Latin in particular? I particularly value this page of quotes from Drew University.)
All you need to do well on the research papers.
