Vocab test answers from my class
I teach Latin to a year 8 class in the UK and here were some of the answers I got from one pupil in a verb test
1. Rogo - I went Rogue
2. Custodio - I custard
3. Video - DVD
4. Supero - I am a super hero
5. Paro - I own a parrot….
5 is my favourite, sometimes Latin teaching can be hilarious!

I’m finally realising why everyone bitches about 4th declension nouns. Why exactly it was deemed necessary to have the same form for seemingly all uses is beyond me.
A group of my friend’s high school friends came up for the weekend, and we all got drunk, which resulted in three of them playing bass, guitar, and the melodica in one room while I was sitting in the other by myself strumming on one guy’s ukulele trying to remember the beat of the Alcaic and Sapphic meters used in Horace.

It’s a new project in development by another classicist, and I hope it really takes off
These are the so-called ‘strong,’ Nietzchean uber-aorists.
