Reading Greek — course taught in Latin! - Discite mēcum legere scrīpta Graeca, Latīnē!

I find English more of an obstacle than a help when studying Ancient Greek. I would much prefer learning Ancient Greek through the medium of Latin. 

Thus, since such media are virtually absent, I have created this course! If you have the book Reading Greek, read along with me as I explain all the vocabulary and grammar therein in Latin. (This link will take you to the book on Amazon.)

If you are already a Latin speaker, you will find this type of language-transfer comprehensible input very useful.

In this course, I will be using the Lucian Pronunciation of Ancient Greek (q.v. this post).
