One of the exercises at the back is-
vos oramus ut discipuli acerrimi fiatis. We are begging you so that you might become very keen students.
I would have thought it should be discipulos acerrimos.

Hitting the Third Declension Wall!

I was doing good until I hit chapter 7 and the Third Declension Nouns.
Just look at these wack declensions:
homō
hominis
hominī
hominem
homine
hominēs

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
Hi, can someone check this?
Possuntne pecūnia ōtiumque cūrās vītae hūmānae superāre?
Are money and leisure able to overcome the anxieties of human life?

Also, if I wanted to say, "multos gratias et valete bene", could I write it as "multos gratias valete beneque"?

MULTOS GRATIAS ET VALETE BENE,
solitario
