school marks

each country has its own system for school marks, can you explain me how does it work in yours?
In Italy marks are form 0 to 10:
0 – you don’t open your mouth
1 – you open your mouth but all you say is wrong
2 – you say something but you’re sleeping and you talk about the last football match
3 – seriously low
4 – less seriously low
5 – nearly pass ...

Numquam Cogita

Okay, I got really bored and had nothing better to do. Then the song came on the radio. To spare the cock his triple crowing I won't deny I love it. I'm sure it is full of mistakes, but I hereby surrender to your merciless criticism:

Olet simile spirito juvenis

one ad typanos
atque fer amiciae tuae
ludus est timendum
atque simulandum
illa est ultram gaudiam
secura ipsa
o minime
verbam sordidam scio

salute salute ...

Have you tried supermemo?

www.supermemo.com

This thing is suppose to help with your memory. Basically it's supposed to organize your repetitions optimally so you don't have to repeat things unnecessarilly. I haven't tested it out long enough to know if it is very successful or not. Although, its premise seems logical enough. I downloaded the freebie study for latin but it requires the lastest version which you have to buy. They only let ...

Frustration

I was trying to find some grammars (for many languages that I shall not name) half as good as anything here, but alas! there were no lovely .pdf old books with great grammar! No exercises, vocabulary in each book! No! None whatsoever!

If any one know where there are some like textkit, do tell.

But I fear that textkit is unfourtunately unique and alone great.

An update on school :0

It was funny the other day my physics teacher was talking about space and the months and tried a mangled 1-10 latin numbers. I just sat there while the girls at the front were laughing and saying "ask Aramique he loves latin...ha ha (latin is for dull old guys)"
I was laughing at him and writing the ordinals up to 20 in my physics book for no apparent reason.
Mwah I'm going to fail physics, ...

Favorite Greek or Latin moment in the movies

Just thought I'd throw out a fun question for Friday. :D I can't think of too many, the Latin moment that comes to mind is in the beginning of "Dead Poets Society" where some instructor is going through the declensions of agricola. Not exactly a favorite moment, just the one that comes to mind. :?

Do you have ...

New member

Greetings to all!

I just stumbled across this site a week or two ago, and have really enjoyed going through the old posts as well as availing myself of some of the grammars in the download areas. I'm not currently enrolled in a formal Latin or Greek course at university, but rather am studying these two languages out of a longstanding interest in the classics, and a desire to read them in the original Latin ...

Newton, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

http://dibinst.mit.edu/BURNDY/Collectio ... ncipia.htm

I once posted this link on the Open Board. This post is just to save it from amnesia. :D

Written in neo-latin.
The maestro describes the classical physics without using calculus, in the style that reminds of Euclid's Elements.
