salve visitor,

Welcome to Legonium, an imaginary Latin Lego town. Enjoy your stay and check out the many sites while you are here.

fabula story

Exciting things happen in Legonium. And some pretty run-of-the-mill things too. Read all about it at fabula. This is the backbone of the site, an ongoing original tale illustrated with Lego images. A new episode is posted on the 1st day of every month. And each story follows on from the one before. Probably best to read them in order.

I hope that these stories are not only fun to read, but also of some use in the Latin classroom. Any feedback to that end would be welcomed. And while I've been studying Latin for some time now, I find I'm always learning something new. So, if you see something that you think should be changed, please say something. I'll be only too happy to investigate.

picturae tantum just the pictures

Another way to read fabula. Here the text is separated from the images, perfect if you are using a Web Page Reader.


This is my ongoing just-about-every-day blog. Each morning I take the next page of the month’s fabula and riff on it a little. Each comes with an English translation of the current page. This is a great way to test your understanding!


I tweet as Legonium under my old YouTube name tutubuslatinus (it’s Latin for YouTube!). I collect some of the tweets and keep them here.

Gilbo [under construction]

Gilbo is great for true Latin beginners. There are (will be!) about 18 chapters of Gilbo. If you can't wait, you can read the whole thing now on TarHeelReader.org. Things get pretty exciting.


There is not too much to do here. A few experimental lessons. One day you will be able to listen and watch the Legonium stories being read to you. Yay! For now, I do highly recommend the counting to 100 video. It’s AWESOME!


You are here!


Ignore this. It’s a workaround.


I really hope you enjoy the site. Any feedback is always appreciated. You can like the Facebook Page or follow Legonium on Twitter if you want to be updated on new materials. Have a great day!
