Snippets- Vocabulary, Context and more

Today's post has a number of snippets ranging from a link or two to a contextual PowerPoint and a vocabulary list to help those preparing for upcoming and vital exams.

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 :)

After a bit of an easter holiday I think everyone is fresh enough to start studying again.
