'dat': give instead of gave (he isn't into past tenses yet).
puella/filia: why do they always give you girls and daughters simultanuously (sp?)? I'm always making the same mistakes.

I've got a Dutch Latin exercise book from around 1900 that uses 50 different 1st declension nouns in the first exercise alone... I'm not sure if you'd want that.

Many thanks to you and Ingrid. In my notes I corrected the numerous "gave" and "girl/daughter" mistakes. Sheesh, I was lame on this one ;o)

The Latin text is correctly "Multae et longae sunt Britanniae viae."
