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.

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

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
