Classics: Potentially Puke Inducing?

Read the letter to Ted Turner by his father that begins:

"My dear son, I am appalled, even horrified, that you have adopted Classics as a major. As a matter of fact, I almost puked on the way home today."

We'll see each other on thursday?

Salvete, everybody,

I am writing a short message in Latin and want to finish it off with a "We'll see each other on thursday!"

I have no problem with "on thursday" (die Iovis) nor with the verb see and its inflexions.

Please help! Thanks.

My main problem is that I can't find really useful information about teaching greek, something about didactics etc. Are there any well-defined orientations? Can I find at least a history of teaching Greek? It might seem funny, but I feel unconfortable not having a theoretical beckground...
