The Aeneid is one of my favorite things to teach. Vergil is an amazing author, even if he is hard to read in the original Latin. But it's so worth reading in Latin. So I created a tool to help students and scholars of Latin read the Aeneid and learn about its amazing ideas and themes. Check it out at Aeneid.co, register an account, and start poking around. There's a 10 day trial, after which all you need to do is buy me a cup of coffee each month to keep using the site. Please consider registering and explore the Aeneid and the founding of the Roman people.
Core vocabulary are the most important words of a language. If you master these, you'll be able to read upwards of 70% of all words in a Latin work. In this video, I talk about a tool that I created to measure your understanding of Latin's core words. There's both practice and a competitive quiz feature.
The Romans might not have Etruscan origins, but their word for people, populus, may. This public and published (for the common people) video explores the etymology of this word to its fullest extent.
The god Jupiter is the chief sky god of Rome, the father of gods and men. He's often connected to his Greek counterpart Zeus, not just because of his job description but also because of the origins of his name. There's a whole lot of father Zeus in Jupiter.
The future active participle puts the U R in future. You will also find that this participle is used in the active periphrastic, a substitute for the future tense and also used in many situations where the future cannot happen.

There are three different types of yes and no questions in Latin: those that expect a yes answer, those a no answer, and those without any expectation whatsoever. This video covers how Latin makes these types of questions. It's either the words num, nonne, or just -ne.
Everyone hates them, but you can't do the Latin verb without them - they are the principal parts. Sure, it seems like there is no pattern to these verbs, but there are some trends that carry across all verbs. Watch this video for more insight, but unfortunately there's no shortcut to just memorizing them for each verb until you get the hang of them. This video covers textbooks which have the fourth principal part as the accusative supine.
The supines are an amazing to say bit of complex grammar. It is a strange fourth declension verbal noun only found in two cases: the accusative and ablative singular. This video covers formation and translation of this very weird noun... verb... verbal noun. Mirabile dictu!

With most words, Latin shows location by using the preposition in plus the ablative case. But this isn't the case for cities, towns, and small islands (and a few other words), which have kept a very old case - the locative.

The pluperfect passive subjunctive is linked to the indicative conjugation of the pluperfect - swap out the imperfect indicative of sum with the imperfect subjunctive, and the conjugation falls easily into place.
