The Academy

I want to help as many people learn Latin as I can, and so I compiled and edited lessons I use in class for the Brust Academy. The goal for these materials is to be accessible for both learners who are self-teaching Latin and want resources, or students doing remote learning who need extra resources and guides. My goal is to eventually have an interactive tool to help practice with immediate feedback on different kinds of activities. Please see below for charts and guides sorted by level (this should be complete by fall 2020), and see the link sections on the left for additional resources. You can also join the "Brust Academy" quizlet classroom and compete with others on the leaderboards!

The death of Viserys Targaryen in the TV version of Game of Thrones, in which molten gold is poured down his throat, shares similarities with the story surrounding the death of Marcus Crassus, the richest man in ancient Rome.
