I have two questions to ask:
I know that an intransitive verb is one that cannot take a direct object such as "to die" for example. However in exercise 153 it says verbs such as 'believe' and 'obey' are intransitive. Am I right in thinking that they are only intransitive in Latin? "John believes Fred" or "John obeys Fred" are obviously allowed in English and so would be a transitive verb. Im pretty sure they are but just want to check.
Also I wanted to ask has anyone finished all the exercises in the book and tried to read Caesar's commentaries on the Gallic wars? In the introduction the book says it prepares you for Caesar, but I was just wondering how much of the text is understandable after finishing D'Ooges book.
