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 :

The accent of any word: Is it natural (being on a certain syllable like in Russian) or is it on a certain part of the word (like in a stem like in German) or is there any special rule (like in Latin or Spanish) ?

ego cramans

Er I'm kind of "self-cramming" for my Latin final Friday so yeah I've got a few more questions...

What is up with this sentence?
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

Difficile Est Saturam Non Scribere?

Hello, I'm currently though with any and all basic Latin, as well as mediocre Latin texts (Eutropius etc...) Now, I thought that I might be able to translate some real texts, but I seem to be having problems! The text in question is Juvenal's Satura. The third line just eludes me. Any ideas?

I am interested in creating an answer key for the exercises in Moreland and Fleischer. I'm looking for anyone who might be interested in helping with this... namely, people who would like to make contributions and help with proof reading and the like.
