What now?

I've finished reading De Bello Gallico with quite a good understanding of it
(though some parts still trick me a little) and I've read two or three poems of catullus too. What should I try now? If someone could give me some advice - both on poetry and prose - I would be glad.
Thanks

Trouble with a verb

translate a club motto

Hi there - i know this is my first post and i'm already asking for help...
I was just wondering if anyone can offer a translation of my cricket club's motto... It's traditional to have it in Latin i know, but it's been a few years since my Latin GCSE's and i'm a little rusty..

Would this be an imperative? I'm lost..

Thanks ...

Origin of fero, tuli, latus

I'm curious as to how this particular verb developed. It's obvious fero comes from the Greek verb phero, which means about the same thing. But I'm not quite sure where tuli and latus came from.

Absolute beginner - first question

Hello everyone.

Recently decided to teach myself Latin, "Just for the hell of it". I've bought myself a few books, a decent latin dictionary and i've downloaded some readers from the net.
I've managed to work my way through verbs of the first declension and some basic nouns. Going ok so far, although perhaps a little slow.

This forum looks like a great resource and I hope to use it throughout my learning. But for ...

Looking for Jenny's Teacher's Manual

Salve,

I've dug out my old high school latin book, "First Year Latin" edited
by Jenny, Scudder and Baade; the 1979 edition.

I'm looking for a copy of the teacher's manual, which I assume contains
