Most importantly, the vocabulary lists:
Every day Latin- general phrases and the most common words that come up in texts, also Latin that is used today.
More Latin- again useful vocabulary that will make the exam easier.
The Growth of the Roman Empire
These will also be added to the useful links section of the website.
Latinum- a set of podcasts that are based on "A practical grammar of the Latin language" which can be downloaded here
Hopefully this will help both people with exams and those just learning Latin for fun :)

An introduction to Latin Metre
So hopefull this will serve as an introduction, so that we can go on to look at some texts.
Note: from now on the posts may be a little more mixed, but will mostly include contextual information and of course some literature on the way.
The literature texts we will be looking at will be Pliny the Elder, Sempronia, Clodia and some others- which I havent decided about yet- sooo....
Until next time!

Latin Dictionary (zipped)
It even tells you the case and how to change it, and comes up in command prompt style screen.
So from now on you should be perfectly capable of translating things that I give you or at least figuring them out XD

If you are someone who is teaching themsleves Latin, or just to go over everything in a slightly more ordered fashion then I definitely reccomend the about.com beginners Latin Tutorial, it clearly describes everything.
