Subject: Latin Activities: Update for August 7th, 2017
Date: Sun, 6 Aug 2017 20:59:28 -0700

This email is from the LatinStudy mailing list.


John DiNovo is starting a Wheelock Review group that will do two chapters
of Wheelock every week (just Sententia Antiqua and Reading Translations).
You should already have some facility with Latin and are looking for a
(very) fast refresher.  The group starts the first week in August; see
below for 'Integremus' for more information.

=========================================================================
The LatinStudy list is an open mailing list dedicated to the study of the
Latin language.  The URL http://www.quasillum.com/study/latinstudy.php
describes the list in more detail.

This activities update is posted weekly, aspirationally on Sundays.
A copy is at http://www.quasillum.com/latin/latin-activities.php
