Lesson 69 is Finished
April 8, 2014
Lesson 69 is done.
Linney's Latin Class is a free online Latin class provided as service/ministry to the homeschooled and self-taught communities.
A couple of errors that I have not yet fixed in all the lectures:
I have recently become aware that I have been mispronouncing a few words, such as the future passive participle, and the perfect infinitive. I will be working to correct these mistakes by editing the lectures! In the meantime, know that in a future passive participle, the accent goes on the next-to-last syllable. Therefore, it would be lauDANdum, not LAUdandum as I have mistakenly pronounced it.
Also, I have at times switched up the terms compound tense and compound verb. A compound verb is a verb that has a preposition attached to its front (a prefix) while a compound tense is a verb that is made up of more than one word.
Other folks want to have a real paper book to hold in their hands, make notes in, etc. The textbook costs approximately $15, and you can order it from any of the main online booksellers. Click here to order the book from Amazon.com. Click here to order the book from Barnes and Noble.com. Or, if you live in the UK, click here to order the book from Amazon.co.uk.
Lesson 69 is done.
Lesson 68 is done.
Lesson 67 is finally uploaded.
OK, I finally re-recorded lecture 67, which I had completely messed up. I think my explanation of the datives is now much improved. Now I can get back to editing all the audio and finishing up the series.
I spent many hours this week editing the audio lectures, and today I discovered that I need to re-record some of lecture 67. I edited 63 through 66 this week, and fixed a lot of mistakes in previous lectures, so my brain needs a break from editing and recording. I'm going to stop where I am and take a week or two off. Then, I will come back, fix lecture 67, and then finish editing 67-73.
Posted lessons 65 and 66.
I took a break for a while, but now I'm back again, editing the remaining lectures. Today I'm posting 63 and 64, and and updated version of lesson 62. By the end of this weekend I hope to have 65, 66, and 67 finished. Hopefully.
Uploaded lesson 62, and uploaded a new, updated version of the answer key that includes all 73 lessons.
Uploaded lessons 60 and 61.
Uploaded lesson 59.
Uploaded lessons 56, 57, and 58.
Fixed a bunch of stuff that was wrong with lesson 52 and uploaded improved version.
Uploaded lesson 55.
Editing lots of audio and tidying up the website. The goal from here on out is...
1) to edit the raw audio for lectures 55-73 and upload those lectures
2) To go back and listen to lectures 1-54 with the microphone in front of me, so I can locate any mistakes and fix them. My knowledge of Latin grammar and pronunciation is much stronger now than it was back in 2007 when I started recording these lectures, so I know that some of those lectures (especially the very early ones) can stand some improvement. When a lecture has been corrected and re-uploaded, you will see the words "FINAL VERSION" at the bottom of the box for that particular lecture.
When I'm done with all that, the finished product should be a pretty good Latin course!
Just posted lesson 54. Now that I have had a little break, I am going start editing and posting the last lessons of the series.
All lessons have now been recorded. Now, I just have to edit the audio for each lesson.
