Ablative case...

Here is the explication the first chapter of "Beginner's Latin" gave me, but still I do not understand it...

Ablative case: 'with', 'in' used (not always) with prepositions (e.g. cum, in)

What does exactly that means? I tried to translate it to English, but it appears that English does not have such case...

Could someone explain it to me???

Thanks!!! I would really appreciate it :D

How many languages do you know?

How many languages do you know?

Not a must, but it would be great if you could also post which languages you know and your current level of fluency.

In order to count as knowing a language you should at least be semi-fluent. (Whatever that means to you)

Hi, I've noticed that some of you have mentioned old norse from time to time. I never had the faintest interest in it...until a few hours ago when I was stricken by northern beauty. Pray tell me where you've learned the language, what best books are etc. I'm fascinated!

My native language is Spanish and I am kind of new to English. I began learning it two years ago when I moved to the United ...
