Teaching Latin Suggestions

Ok, I'm going to teach someone Latin, I'll probably be using Ecce Romani (I own the collection) but in a hurried pace, and then move on to Eutropius. Sounds good? What about dollars? $15 American sounds OK? Any suggestions?

Little translation help

Hello all!

I'm new to this forum and I'm trying to translate a few sentences from a AngrA song. Here they are:

Salve ara, salve victima
De passionis gloria
Qua vita mortem pertulit
Et morte vitam reddidit


Unfortunately, I can't provide you any translation trials I have made, because my vocaulary knowledge related to these sentences is "ara" and "victima".
If you can't (or even don't want to) translate it. You could provide the meaning ...

Declension of Greek Names

Does anyone know how to decline Greek names of the type Echo -us, Dido -us? My dictionary has the '-us' in the genitive of Dido marked as having a long 'u', but not the other one, so there might be two declensions here. Gratias ago.

Missing Exercise Answers to Latin Prose Composition

Salvete Omnes

Is there a reason why the answers to exercises 157 to 165, are missing from the answer key to North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition? I just double checked and those answers are missing from the key available here at TEXTkit. Any help that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Perhaps they were missing from the original answer key???

Vale for now

Which of these is a proper translation for "we were born to lose"?

Nati sumus ut perdamus.
Nati sumus ut perderemus.

Latin 'V'

Has anyone considered that the pronunciation of the Latin letter V, which we transliterate alternately as 'v' or 'u', could have been a great deal like the Indian semivowel? In Sanskrit and modern Indian languages, the liquid consonant 'v' has the sound of 'w' before 'a', 'o', and 'u', but has the sound of English 'v' before 'e' and 'i'. As we can see from the Romance languages, and even German, these two palatal vowels ...

Rosetta Stone

Hello everyone. I have absolutely zero experience with latin. I plan ont aking Latin in college starting next fall. I want to have a decent feel for the language before I go in cold to the classroom. I was looking at the Rosetta Stone software and it really caught my eye. I tried out the demo and it taught me a few basic words in a great innovative way. For instance it would have "Canis" ...
