Textkit is a site that "began in late 2001 as a project to develop free of charge downloads of Greek and Latin grammars, readers and answer keys. We offer a large library of over 180 of the very best Greek and Latin textkbooks on our Ancient Greek and Latin Learning pages. Since that time we have distributed millions of PDF textbook free of charge world-wide."

VRoma is "first and foremost a community of scholars, both teachers and students, who create online resources for teaching about the Latin language and ancient Roman culture. The project was initially funded by a $190,000 National Endowment for the Humanities Teaching with Technology grant in 1997. The two major components of the project are its online learning environment (MOO), which has received several favorable external reviews, and its collection of internet resources. The VRoma MOO requires logging on as a guest or through your personal character and password, but all the web resources are freely accessible on the internet."

  4. I only had two choices for language; French and Spanish. I'd have loved to have Latin to choose from. Maybe now, I'll get that chance.
