Pronunciation and translation

Hello all,

First of all, excellent website and forum. You have the potential to bring back the greco-latin culture that now seems lost in our educational system. Kudos.

I'm studying latin by myself using "First Year Latin" by Collar and Daniell (the 1907 edition and the revised edition by Thornton Jenkins), and I've stumbled upon a few problems. One of those is pronunciation, since my goal is to read and speak ecclesiastical latin. So how ...

I'm in a literature course, and on our sylabus, the day before Thanksgiving break, the day is labled "Quod libes." The instructor said that that "libes" means "you want", making the phrase translate as "Whatever you want." Whitaker's WORDS says:

Looking for opinions on Children's Latin programs

Anyone have any suggestions? My son is 9; I'm figuring on starting him on Latin by next September, when we start our homeschool study of Rome.

Translation to latin

Is my translation ok?

1) Neptunus was lord of sea and sea animals.
Dominus maris et marium animalium Neptunus erat.

2) Marcus Porcius had many virtues.
Marco Porcio erat multitudines virtutes. (dativus possesivus)

Multa exemplaria fortitudinum Romanorum civium discipulis notis erunt.
