ANCIENT LANGUAGES

recommendations

Whether you are just getting started, or are a bit further on in your ancient language journey, these resources should provide a bit of help.

As the site develops, we will add to these sections, so if you find something that is really useful to you elsewhere, please send us a link so we can also add it here.

We've tried to group them broadly according to level, but there is a lot of overlap. Some reference boooks especially are aimed at supporting beginners and more-confident learners simultaneously.

Finally, some of our favourites are highlighted in bold. We didn't receive Latin or Greek at school, and have had to pick them up in our spare time, and finding clear, easy-to-follow texts has allowed us to progress with a bit more confidence.
