having trouble with this imperative

Hi guys, I am a third year latin student in virginia. We are translating hercules, and havn't been putting english into latin since latin II for grammar structure, so i'm a bit rusty on it.

I've been trying to make some sentances latley on my own, and i'm having some trouble with this one:

Latin Praxis at SLU help?

Hello all. I’m studying Latin on my own, relying on various books and websites. The resources provided here are great and are proving very helpful, and there is much comfort seeing others who've taken a similar lonely approach find some level of interaction in these forums (..or do you all say fora?). Anyhow, another place I’ve also found helpful is Saint Louis University’s website where there are many pages of exercises that make use of ...

Translation Help: "Out of Heaven"

Hi,

I am trying to title a poem, and I thought it would be nice to do so in Latin. I want to say "Out of Heaven" (in the terms that I "walked out of Heaven"). What would you suggest?

I don't know much (or any) Latin, but I have tried to work on this on my own using some online English-Latin dictionaries. I came up with:

my justification for this is that the chances of me getting to level of this translation in the next billion years is slim, anyway

language speech problem

i was thinking (a rare occasion)

i saw in a post somewhere that someone said that having someone to speak to is invaluable, why not set up a voice chat room, i've seen it done and all you need is a mic and a conection to the net.

i may be well ahead of myself here (you may already have it for example) but this would be as i quote: "an invaluable resource"

take it ...

Is Caesar worth reading? Is Horace?

This started in another thread, but it seems to have acquired a life of its own and I thought I would spin it off. Original thread is here: http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic.php?t=1397.

Say, Ulpianus, do you propose that Caesar's writing is, for the modern Latinist, merely functional?

Cursive Script

Hey here's the Roman Cursive Script written in Britain.

Look at the box of writing below the alphabet. Click Show transcription. How do you render the latin? It seems deformed to me...but it's probably because I'm not exposed to enough original latin (or any yet!!)

Enjoy, I'll await your replies. (Come on benissimus! You know you want to be ostentatious with this)
