school marks

each country has its own system for school marks, can you explain me how does it work in yours?
In Italy marks are form 0 to 10:
0 – you don’t open your mouth
1 – you open your mouth but all you say is wrong
2 – you say something but you’re sleeping and you talk about the last football match
3 – seriously low
4 – less seriously low
5 – nearly pass ...

M&F Unit 13 Latin to English

Page 226:

11 b) Duo consules exposuerunt se quosdam duces navibus praefecturos esse.

11 c) Duo consules exposuerunt se quosdam duces navibus praefecturos

11 b) The two consuls explained that they were going to put certain leaders in command of the ships.

But what's the difference in 11 c)? Is the esse optional and they actually mean the same or is there some difference I'm not seeing?

Numquam Cogita

Okay, I got really bored and had nothing better to do. Then the song came on the radio. To spare the cock his triple crowing I won't deny I love it. I'm sure it is full of mistakes, but I hereby surrender to your merciless criticism:

Olet simile spirito juvenis

one ad typanos
atque fer amiciae tuae
ludus est timendum
atque simulandum
illa est ultram gaudiam
secura ipsa
o minime
verbam sordidam scio

salute salute ...

The next step

First off - to introduce myself - hello all. Wonderful looking site here.

Now then, I need some advise on how to improve my latin. Some background - I'm in my fourth year of Latin in high school and one of the best in my class (if I do say so myself, with a 4.2 GPA to back it up). Currently we are translating the Aeneid in preparation for the AP test in late March/April. ...

Have you tried supermemo?

www.supermemo.com

This thing is suppose to help with your memory. Basically it's supposed to organize your repetitions optimally so you don't have to repeat things unnecessarilly. I haven't tested it out long enough to know if it is very successful or not. Although, its premise seems logical enough. I downloaded the freebie study for latin but it requires the lastest version which you have to buy. They only let ...

Italian-Greek dictionary

I'm amazed! I'm looking for a Greek-Italian\Italian-Greek dictionary but in my school everybody says a Italian-Greek dictionary is useless. Useless??????? If you want to learn a language you MUST be able to translate into and from it! Italian teachers are veeeeeery old-fashoned.
Do you know any ditionary?

So I went and bought Lidell & Scott

Having recently received my financial aid check (I'm a classics undergrad), I was up for a little fancy living and decided to give into temptation and buy the Greek Lexicon of Lidell & Scott a few weeks back.

My impressions have been mixed. The dictionary itself is fantastic, the finest Greek-English dictionary in the world and a triumph of scholarship. The problems I found were:

    *Its enormous size and weight. This is a difficult ...

Frustration

I was trying to find some grammars (for many languages that I shall not name) half as good as anything here, but alas! there were no lovely .pdf old books with great grammar! No exercises, vocabulary in each book! No! None whatsoever!

If any one know where there are some like textkit, do tell.

But I fear that textkit is unfourtunately unique and alone great.
