We'll see how things go. I might not abandon Latin completely, but maybe I will do an independent study in my spare time. Next year I'll probably be studying either Hebrew or Spanish in school or possibly both. That would mean 3 languages at a time. I think it's doable. 3? Three? I can't even maste...

Doh! I agree (it took me a while of reading this over and over) that it should be corrected in the key.
