I'm so excited.

My ultimate goal with regards to Latin is to become fluent, or at least as fluent as I can become (speaking realistically, there are probably limits to this due to lack of native speakers, the fact that I don't really know anybody who's into Latin, and the relative scarcity of books in Latin).  Periodically I check my progress towards this goal by randomly going to the Latin Wikipedia and seeing how much of it I understand (and can pick up through context clues).  Apparently two semesters is the magic amount of Latin I need for it to not be completely frustrating to attempt to read Wikipedia.

This sounds like a worthy amition and I wish you well. If you do not already know, there are some traditional children's books available in Latin. They are very worthwhile. Much of Beatrix Potter is there. AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh and House at Pooh Corner ane both a good read, (I have only ever read them in the Latin translation). Best of all, the first 2 volumes of Harry Potter are excellent (vol. 1 is also available in classical Greek!).

Again, best of luck,

Yours aye,
