Some thoughts from the instructor:
There may be some students in this class who know me from courses in the classroom or from a Latin reading group. If so, you know that I love Latin and that I believe everyone (EVERYONE) can read and enjoy Latin.
So please, if you are new to this or feeling frustrated, do not hesitate to get in touch with me so that we can talk together on the phone or even meet in Norman for a tutorial session if you would like to do that. I'm here to do whatever I can to help you achieve these goals.
Many people learn to be afraid of Latin while they are first learning the Latin. Please don't be afraid! What is the worst thing that can happen? You might misunderstand something: big deal! That is not a problem at all!
As long as you keep trying to understand, you will understand more and more and more. By the end of the semester you will be reading Latin with curiosity and confidence. If it is bumpy at first, just keep on going - and let me know if you'd like some help in finding study techniques and strategies that fit your personal style.
