Salvēte plūrimum sodālēs Latīnistae! I'd like to share with you a resource I've found instrumental in improving my command of Latin in just over half a year of increasingly regular communication in the language - discord.gg/Latin. What is Discord, you ask? It's a modern multi-platform communication program that combines the functionality of olden-day clunky text messengers and chat-rooms like IRC with that of voice-call software such as Skype or teamspeak while offering direct and seamless integration of all kinds of media, be it images, audio, YouTube, Spotify - and even an ability to integrate with games in a fashion similar to steam. All these possibilities allow like-minded people to organise into communities, chat by text or voice, share small files or links to larger ones or simply discuss cat videos. Having a Latin Discord server means you can finally do all of this in Latin. We have a Latin-only channel for the more experienced members that sees daily activity, a help channel for all sorts of on-topic discussions and help requests in English, and a dedicated channel offering an immense wealth of links to dictionaries, texts, grammars, readers, presentations, Latin audio and video resources as well as to other communities and websites having to do with the Latin language and the Roman culture. I personally haven't come across an even remotely similar collection of Latin learning resources anywhere else, so you might want to check that even if the rest doesn't interest you - and perhaps share some resources yourself. All the messages are permanent, can be edited or deleted and include Markdown formatting; there's a friend/private messaging system as well. What I personally would like to see more of is people who can jump into our Latin voice chat from time to time - or even at set times - to read, discuss and clarify Latin texts together. We read all sorts of things ranging from plays to poetry to Seneca's letters to modern Latin periodicals to vicipaedia articles about cats With enough people it's entirely possible to even create dedicated study groups. I think an app like Discord can serve as an excellent supplement for a more formal and permanent platform such as this forum, providing a venue for more impromptu communication or for directing others to freshly-created or interesting threads on the forum. The program is available on many devices as well as directly in your browser, although downloading the app is highly recommended for constant access and better performance without having to check your browser tab. The notification system can be set up to only display new activity for the channels you're interested in.
