Change Notes

September 11, 2017 - New to the site is a group feature called "Classrooms". You are now able to create a team of users and enroll them in a specific classroom. The classroom feature is free for any subscriber to use. This feature also allows for group billing. If you'd like to enroll and pay for a whole group of users with one specific credit card (say, a teacher or school buying subscriptions for an entire class), you can do so in the Classroom Billing section.

August 25, 2017 - A spinner is added to certain search functions on the vocabulary page to show when results are loading.

August 22, 2017 - A series page is added. This page allows the user to see all of the videos in a series, along with a description of the series.

August 21, 2017 - The youtube video on LatinTutorial introducing this site releases, and the site officially opens.

August 1, 2017 - Soft launch. On this date, the website went live and was available for users to register. Currently there are 18 videos, 9,896 lines of the Aeneid, and 63,772 words fully parsed and lemmatized.

About is a production of LatinTutorial, a site and YouTube channel designed to help Latin students all around the world learn and practice Classical Latin. Most of the videos produced by LatinTutorial involve Latin grammar, but learning Latin is more than just the language. Embedded in the study of Latin is all of ancient Roman and Greek culture. So when you visit LatinTutorial or watch videos on YouTube, you'll see a wide range of topics on the ancient world.

LatinTutorial and are both creations of me, Ben Johnson. I am a Latin teacher in Maine with degrees in Latin and Classics from Cornell University and the University of Florida. I've made tons of tools for my own students and others that use my stuff, and that's great. Some say that Latin is a dying language, if not already dead, but I don't think so, and the more I can help others in studying it, the more vibrant our world will be. If you're a grammar/translate pro, or skilled at speaking Latin like an ancient Roman, I hope to be able to help you out as much as I can. On a personal level, I have a great family, and in my spare time I enjoy long walks in ancient ruins and gazing up at the heights of Mount Olympus.

I use a bunch of tools to create the content on this site, and I'm often asked about them. Below are some of the biggest tools, in hopes that you won't have to ask me how I flow my work.
