Why study Latin?  Links to other people's videos and articles.     Also, by popular demand, the Life of Brian clip in which Brian gets a Latin lesson from a Roman centurion:  Romans, go home!   Ok, there's a tiny bit of inappropriateness in this one.

Latinists in the news:  Latin Lives (The Nation) Reginald Foster probably is, as the reporter notes, the most famous Latinist in the world.  I was fortunate enough to be in his summer class in Rome twenty-something years ago.  A nice story about him:    Mike Lowe Reports   What a character.  (I love characters.  Most of my favorite Latin teachers have been characters.)


The University of Kentucky made a half-hour program about Terence Tunberg’s conversational Latin workshops (which have become an indispensable part of my summers):  Conventiculum Latinum                  


Classical civilization in the news:        


                        What is made of over 190,000 pieces and took more than 470 hours to assemble?  Lego Pompeii;  Lego Pompeii (Wikipedia)   

                        The speeches of president Obama owe much to classical oratory:  The New Cicero . 

                        Ok, now that you’ve read that, for dessert you may read   Obama's Use of Complete Sentences Stirs Controversy .                         

                        (N.B. – that’s an abbreviation for the Latin nota bene, “note well”— this is a humor piece.)


Is Latin hard to learn?  Even little kids can learn Latin (another video clip, but not Monty Python).

Cambridge-related games:
