Verb question and pronounciation question

I've started Wheelocks, and still working on the first chapter.

I have a couple of questions.

I try to speak the words as I'm studying them. I'm having trouble with

"conservavi" (mark over the i)

Second, I want to use words in sentences of my own. Can you use a verb like this?

Peccare cogitant.

They plan to sin.

Thanks and I'm sure this is the first of many questions!

Edition Differences?

I have the 5th--is there a big difference between it and the 6th? I would suspect not, but before I buy Dale Grote's accompanying book, I would like to know if there have been any significant changes.

Thanks,

What study techniques do you use?

I am thinking about changing the way I am studying and I was curious how other people study. I have not been using any sort of organized study plan. I was previously just doing the excercises in each chapter of Wheelock. I also have the Workbook (3rd edition) but was not using it yet.

I am considering the following method:
1. Read the chapter
2. Do all the excercises at the end of the chapter ...

Translation question

I am having trouble with a Latin to English translation and was hoping someone here could help me. I always seem to have more trouble with questions. Here is the Latin (it is from Workbook for Wheelock's Latin 3rd edition page 34 # 4).

Quid de me et exitio patriae meae cogitas?

My problem comes with the "me et exitio" phrase. I believe that "exitio" is in the ablative case and should be translated as ...

Wheelock's Latin accessory books.

I have decided to start teaching myself Latin and thanks to help from benissimus I decided to get Wheelock's Latin. I picked it up at my a local bookstore. Soon I will buy 38 Latin stories and I have been wondering about a few other book type things that are offered.

http://www.textkit.com/a_Workbook_for_Wheelock__Latin__3rd_Edition__Revised-0060956429.html

http://www.textkit.com/a_Vocabulary_Cards_and_Grammatical_Forms_Summary_for_Wheelock__Latin-0865165572.html I was thinking that I might learn more making cards myself.

Seeking Loci Antiqui Aid

Hello, this is my first post after ages lurking, so here goes!

I'm working with the Loci Antiqui independently, and I was wondering if there is someone here who would check my translations. If there are translations of these passages up somewhere, that would work too, but I havent been able to find any so far.

Thanks a lot!

Ch 39, P&R#13, Eng -> Latin

As part of catching up with my negelected studies, I have been doing the English to Latin exercises from Wheelock, and I have a question. Those familiar with the film 'Jaws', might now like to start humming the 'daa dum' theme.

They are going to Rome to talk about conquering the Greeks.

I tried a number of ways of translating this, and would like someone to check my work please. (The first one is in ...
