Latin for Beginner’s Key

No key was produced by the publisher of Benjamin L. D’Ooge’s Latin For Beginners because the textbook was intended for classroom use. To help independent learners, this key was prepared by a small group of Textkit Forum members who were all kind enough to volunteer their time, energy and skills.

    Hello! I am currently doing the exercises and I found an error. The answer for S 34, P 17, Qn 7, part 3 should be “girls, acc, pl”. The answer in the key is “daughters, acc, pl”. The question was “puellas”.

  4. I am a Catholic ands need to put myself foward and learn the language of jesus’s Church

    • John Wiley says:

      You may consider learning Aramaic if that is your reasoning.

    • Kyle N says:

      Hate to say it man.. But Jesus’ church Spoke Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek.. It wasn’t until later on that they start translating the manuscripts into Latin. However, Latin is good for use of learning how to read the Vulgate. However, If you want to go to the original text then learning Koine Greek (or Biblical Greek) will do that for you.

    Jesus did not speak in latin. He was a jew you idiot.

    Very nice site, the romans were an amazing people. So advanced and yet so barbaric. Not sure why folks here relate it to church. Jesus spoke undoubtedly some version of hebrew.
    But since the catholic church is ultimately the extension of the roman empire i guess one can call it the language of catholic church even though thats the wrong way around.

    Thank you thank you!

  8. White says:

    Splendid- Now there is a faint chance, a chance nonetheless, of learning on your own!:)-
    To the Catholic guy I would like to remind him that we have reasons to believe that Jesus spoke Aramaic (a Semitic language) and not the language of his prosecutors….Latin

  9. John Austin says:

    Hi William look not to make a fuss , but Jesus would have used Hebrew or Aramaic maybe Greek but not Latin, history shows that for the first two hundred years the language of the early church was one of those three the first church being Hebrew- Greek speaking, the Latin church as we have today, really did not get going until 200 – 300 AD the oldest Latin text being around 400+ AD, you have to remember that the mark of an educated Roman Man was that he speak Greek, go figure. and Jesus was not a Roman.
