I could normally give my generic tips like listen to music/watch TV etc. for language learning but obviously with Latin we have a lot of limitations due to its "not so aliveness" and the fact it's rarely spoken

I found some resource posts on tumblr for Latin which should help:

http://nathanielthecurious.tumblr.co...ideos-in-latin
http://whatshouldwecallhomer.tumblr....king-classes-i
http://learnal.tumblr.com/post/13571...tin-masterpost

This would also appear to be an online latin newspaper; http://ephemeris.alcuinus.net for reading practice.

You could also find a latin course on Memrise I imagine.

Just try and learn something in latin every day and perhaps try and incorporate it into your everyday life - so count in latin, swear in latin etc.

It'll be a challenge w/o a teacher, but latin (once you get past the case system) is relatively easy as there is absolutely no word order in latin.

This is a really good textbook to start with. You can easily teach yourself from. It has lots of good translation exercises plus grammar rules and a Latin to English dictionary in the back to get you started.

most schools use the cambridge latin course, the books are great. they're all online if you google cscp or you can buy the physical copies. i'd also recommend going on exam board websites to find grammar lists and past papers for more translations.
