How to use this site:

1. subscribe for daily updates Monday-Saturday

2. Check out our resources page for help with pronouncing Latin and Greek, finding grammars and guides, and much more

3. Send us your selection for analysis via our Viewer’s Choice feature. The world of Latin is rich and varied, waiting to be explored. Sometimes you need a pedagogus, an Orpheus to take you down into the details (and bring you back up katabatically).

4. Tell your friends and spread the word of simple, interesting Latin instruction with lots of variety

Exemplum regulam praecedit – show them, don’t just tell them!

Our pedagogical philosophy is that people learn language best when they see real-life uses in context, not merely abstractions. That is why each and every instance of Latin instruction is drawn from actual authors and texts, not manufactured exempla.
