    Greetings to all Latin D members,

    THANK YOU,

    J.M

    I'd say the best way to learn Latin is to just get a textbook (e.g. Wheelock's Latin for a more traditional textbook, Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata (part 1) for something more reading-based, Latin: An Intensive Course for something more intensive, etc.) and start going through it, posting questions in the "Latin Beginners" section of this forum if you're confused by anything. There are also some textbooks online here, under "Latin Textbooks".

    On YouTube, there are some helpful channels, such as Latintutorial & Dwane Thomas.

    Thanks
  8. Salve fratres! This is one of my first posts, so hello all. Personally, I think one of the best textbooks out there is the original: Donatus' Ars Minor, it's what I used. An English or bilingual copy isn't easy to find so I do, therefore, second Wheelock as a possible alternative. If you happen to be (like myself) a student currently in college your institution might offer it. And those of us on here can always help you with declensions, sentence structure, and so on. Rome wasn't built in a day, but, as Augustus said, it was left made of marble in the end. Your language skills will eventually have the same result, it just takes time and method.
