Grand Finale

Postby Mongoose42 » Fri May 28, 2004 6:37 pm

I am nearing the completion of my Latin studies in school for this year, but as I am self taught I have no available form of final test. I have worked through the first and second part of D'Ooge and am seeking a reasonably comprehensive Latin to English translation test.

Please post any suggestions on how to find/make a Latin final.

P.S. the advisor correcting any test doesn't know much Latin so an answer key is a nessecity.

Way to go! :D

Take the National Latin Exam. They go back to 97. PDF format and have keys. They have multiple levels in each package.

Google it and the site will pop up.

I remember I read one of the Cicero passages on forseeing future (the one about Caesar and his worrying had he been informed of the plots against him etc.) it was very good, but quite difficult (not adapted at all) for a person just having finished D'Ooge. There were many crazy indirect speech conditionals ('futurum fuisse ut bene esset' style which we all adore!), so look at a composition grammar if you're planning on the level V VI NLE :wink: good luck

Thank you, the past tests are exactly what I was looking for.
