Intransitive Verbs in Passive Form????

I am (again.... still?) a very puzzled camper, as a result of the latest battle with Cicero.... I'm pretty sure I've tripped over this before, but I can't for the life of me figure out where (or if) I found an answer. The problem is that he's put an intransitive verb into a passive form. So if something can't take a direct object, how can it become passive? Or is this one of those cases ...

Best Latin Book for Beginners

<br />I'm trying to decide which book (or books) to get for my independent study of the Latin language. <br /><br />Which book do you think is the best one to get?<br /><br />I've browsed through Wheelock's 6th Edition at the bookstore and it looks OK.

Hey, I've read in several posts that you pronounce the dyphthong AE as in "rIde" or like the word "eye"..<br /><br />My question is: do all your books state this? and is this the suggestion given from books outside of the U.S. also??<br />I find it sooo weird 'cause here in Italy we're definetely not taught to pronounce it that way!<br />We're usually taught to say it as in "bEt".. actually, if any of you ...

"Thinking" Latin

A few years ago, when I do not even thought about learning latin, I heard about a class where the teacher spoke only latin and encouraged the students to do the same. I spoke a little with the magister and he said me that the students were introduced in the language by a "simplified latin". What do you guys think about it?<br />Is there something similar in the U.S.? How could one develop a skill ...
