New to the Forums

Hello all,

I'm begining my first quarter of Latin here at UC Santa Barbara. We are using Jones and Sidwell "Reading Latin". I also have downloaded D'Ooge "Latin for Beginners" that I may use as a supplement.

Any tips for beginners?

Need help with German / introducing me

Hello all,

I will be applying to Law school this fall/spring to begin fall 2005. Initially I really wanted to go to the U.S., but then realized I cannot afford US$30'000 per year, and getting into serious debt would further aggravate my depression.

"I love water, I want to live in water"

What I got is that vivere is in present infinitive active and if I would take for example redire that is in present infinitive. is vivere correct grammatically in this case, or should it be for example "vivo"?
Also, is ...

relatively simple translation (?)

Our family coat of arms has a knights helm with a "be ready!" motto..

There must be a dozen translations for readiness in Latin, but I cannot for the life of me figure out the most legitimate for a coat of arms..

It's been many years since I studied Latin, and of course my old latin teacher is currently out of the country.. Please can anyone help with this translation? I believe it would have ...
