I try to use the pronunciation proposed by Andrea Calabrese.

Great thanks to Scorpio Martianus for helping me with pronunciation. His vlog is an awesome resource of spoken Latin: I edited the first file to follow his guidelines. The first file is here:

About the author

Ioannes Oculus

I am addicted to languages, both modern and ancient. No language is dead as long as we can read and understand it. I want to share my linguistic passion with like minded people. I am also interested in history, astronomy, genealogy, books and probably many others. My goals now are to write a novel in Latin, a textbook for Latin learners, Uzbek-Polish, Polish-Uzbek dictionary, modern Uzbek grammar and textbook for learners. My dream is to have a big house in UK or USA where I could keep all my books and have enough time and money to achieve my goals.
