Re: Latin Translating Sense-Need Help in Improving!

Thanks for the help. If there is anyone else with a systematic method of checking and thinking of how words go together in an average Latin sentence, it would be much appreciated. My final exam will be basically 6 synopses (6 different verbs, Principal Parts given, in all 6 forms (1st Single, 1st Pl...

Latin Translating Sense-Need Help in Improving!

Hi there, You might not remember me, I posted asking for help on studying Latin earlier this year. I'm glad to say that I have improved drastically, but I still think that I'm missing some Latin sense. Now I just want to come to you to ask about how you all translate some random Latin Sentences.

Re: "Catch Up" on my Latin?

Thank you all so much! I guess it's all back to basics-I need to drill myself more on declensions and synopsis of nouns and verbs to recognize them in a sentence. When I see a word, I sometimes find myself struggling to pinpoint what case it is in, and sometimes end up going by the word's meaning, n...

Re: "Catch Up" on my Latin?

I guessed as much, I just need to practice practice practice, memorize memorize memorize. I thought maybe there was some other technique I'm missing out on or something. Is there a book with a bunch of "simple" Latin 1-2 sentences I could do to try and improve my sense and such? I am also using http...

"Catch Up" on my Latin?

Hey, So my middle school teaches Latin; Latin 1, 2, 3, 4. 3 years of Middle School Latin equate up to about 1 year of High School Latin. I took Latin 1 and 2 at the Middle School, but then I jumped to Latin II at the High School, which basically meant I "lost" a year of Middle School Latin. I feel s...
