Lusus project underway

Posted 10-18-2009 at 02:40 AM by CoderMan

Lusus is a project I recently started working on. It is supposed to be set of games to help teach beginning Latin. I /just/ integrated in a very rough ClanLib GUI for one game. Improvements to the interface and attractiveness, plus more games, should be coming shortly.

Source code (no binaries) available at:

    Latin is sometimes spoken by ministers in certain "High Church" groups, such as in certain R. Catholic ceremonies. Generally people learn Latin to be able read it, and that either for academic or theological reasons. I think I can say safely that a great many of the most important philosophical, religious, and historical works ever written were originally provided to us in either Greek or in Latin.

    But in any case, the software is primary intended for people who want to learn Latin, and there are more than you might think. Here is an entire web community that allows communication only in Latin:
