Ceasar's De Bello Gallico Book I Paragraphs 1 thru 17

Beginning Latin readings concurrently with Greek. As with the Greek, starting off easy. Hoping to capture some synergy.

    I tried to read the selection but I still have a lot of grammar and vocabulary to learn. I need to finish the Latin textbook and then work with your readings. I hope to come to a meeting soon.

      I'm using this book http://www.amazon.com...­. I'm on Unit 4.

    Ceasar was more challenging than I expected, (especially as I've already read Book I before). My first impression, after several weeks of Xenophon, is that Latin can be more succinct. It doesn't have the plethora of particles that Greek uses so liberally. But it was interesting to find ourselves in another culture, another milieu. Looking forward to next meeting.

      Thanks for organizing these, David. I found the Caesar challenging as well, but not so much so as to be disheartening. For me at least, this is pitched at the right level, and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did! Look forward to the next one as well.

    I unfortunately have to cancel! I'm a Massachusetts guy, and the Patriots are in the AFC Championship game. Next time!

    Apollo has sent me some affliction and so I'm staying in bed. I hope to be healthy for the next meeting.

      Hi Evan. We could have used a Latin teacher on Sunday. Caeser's not as easy as I thought it would be. Hope you're feeling better soon and will join us at another meeting.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
