Latin, Episode 2

On this episode Dr Fleming starts with an excerpt from the Gospel of St. Matthew. He uses the passage as a teaching device to look at endings of words. This discussion segues into nouns and verbs, declensions and conjugations, and hints and tips for learning and studying.

We also address some listener feedback from Episode Zero, before finishing with our “Latin Word of the Month” in which Dr. Fleming discusses English words and their Latin ancestors.

The text of the second passage that Stephen reads is: “In diebus autem illis venit Johannes Baptista praedicans in desert Iudaeae et dickens penitential agile adpropinquavit denim regnum caelorum.”

The immersion Latin course that Stephen mentioned in the show can be found here: . If any listeners have any feedback or first/second hand experience with this school we would appreciate hearing about it: latin (at)
