Latinum - The Latin Language Learning Podcast from London

Want to become fluent in Latin? Evan Millner, who lives in London, has set up an amazing new website, Latinum, which hosts an online Latin course via podcast. Listeners can download free conversational Latin lessons -- recorded using the Restored Classical Pronunciation --to their MP3 players (such as an Ipod) and immerse themselves in the language.

The list of individuals and organizations who have contributed to the Latinum project is quite impressive and includes many respected scholars and institutions. To name only a few: Stephen Daitz, Robert Sonkowsky, Lorna Robinson, Cambridge University Press, the University of Canterbury (NZ), the University of Californa at Los Angeles, and Swarthmore College.

Topics in the Latinum Podcast archive include poetry, grammar, songs, jokes and readings, contemporary Latin, fluency practice, dictations and more.

What are you waiting for? It's time to get more fluent in Latin!
