Subject: Latin Activities: Update for July 10th, 2017
Date: Sun, 9 Jul 2017 21:27:47 -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' or monitor the list for more information.

A new Wheelock beginners group, Suo, has started.  Please contact
Teresa Montgomery, <teresamichele at gmail dot com>, for more information.

=========================================================================

Latin language.  The URL http://www.quasillum.com/study/latinstudy.php
