These are some of the apps, websites, and other things that I have used or use in my research and teaching.
Here are some apps that I’ve used to learn Latin, and organize my reading and writing.
Flashcards is one of the best ways to learn vocabulary and phrases. This app spaces out the repetition to ensure maximum retention of vocabulary. I used this app to learn hundreds of phrases which I still know instictively today. This is especially useful for Latin, where certain words and phrases might only occur a few times in classical literature.
This is my go-to app dictionary as it has not only Lewis & Short, but also other dictionaries rolled into one. The website version is however much better with many more dictionaries.
We use Notion to organize all our work from academic research and video recording, to writing easy stories. The app is very flexible and can be adapted to the needs of the user. I’ve built databases with expressions and words that I find interesting. It’s a great way to keep track of everything you read and excerpt.
Without this todo-list app we would not be able to keep track and work on all of our Latinitium projects. Use it to remember to read or listen to Latin every day. I always love checking things off a list. Valde placet.
Thanks to modern technology, we can now have access to a vast number of books which were before only available in certain libraries.
