Sequence of tenses

According to Wheelock, the perfect tense can be either primary or secondary sequence. But when is it primary and when is it secondary?
Which of these (I bet it's neither... :roll:) translations of "He came to run" is correct:
Venit ut currat. - Primary sequence
Venit ut curreret. - Secondary sequence

General Question. How much time?

I completed a correspondence Latin course a couple of years back, using Paterson and Macnaughton's 2 volume "The Approach to Latin" and am keen to return to study.

How much time do people devote to M&F's course - an hour a day everyday? half a day? a full day once a week?

What have others found successful?

Thanks for any input.

Greek accent

I have a question about greek accent :

Me rus cum amicis ambulaturum pollicitus, non arbitrarus sum me domi debere morari.
Is that a perfect passive participle?? How do you translate that if it it's deponent! (this is just what episcopus said would happen, "i am fished"...)
I am thinking Having promised to walk to my country house with ...

Anyone here reading the Septuagint?

I started learning Greek in May, and since I enjoy reading the Bible, particularly in Hebrew, I thought trying to read it in Greek while I'm learning would be a lot of fun, and it is!

Problems with the future

I was wondering if someone out there can help me with the future tense. I understand the basic premise and theory behind how words change from the present to future, but I'm still struggling with a number of aspects. Take the following examples. These are from an exercise I attempted where present verbs had to be changed into the future:

akouomen ------ akousomeqa
filei -------- filh
bow -------- bohsomai
nika? --------- nikhsei

My ...
