Then (now) online conference on Latin language learning

G. Milanese: only teaching Latin through versions is dangerous. Students can convince themselves that the sense relies in the translation, not in the "nonsensical" original Latin text. Translations are good for assessment, not to learn

G. Milanese: Alcuin and the Caroline-age authors Latin provide good texts for Latin language starters, b/c the word order is closer to modern languages

G. Milanese: Ørberg is not the solution per se, because the student gets used (for two whole volumes) to the author's idiolect. Then, jumping into 'real' (i.e. other authors') Latin is hard

G. Milanese in a conference now on teaching Latin (citing F.W. Newman): students should read many simple Latin texts (thus reading recurring linguistic structures), not few complicated Latin texts. One doesn't start learning Latin by reading Faust
