    Oh dear, what a shame you won't be able to have your convocations after all.

    useless fact of the day:

    lego - I choose, I read, I collect together......ooh.

    (my personal mission: a wee bit of Latin everyday on tes, because you're worth it)

    Latin vocabulary is NEVER useless.

    And that's a fact.

    I have very, very few regrets in life but one of those few is never having had the opportunity to learn Latin. I went to a good school but Latin wasn't on the curriculum :(

    I 'did' Latin, but it was my worst subject result at 'O' Level.


    But I don't regret it. I find all sorts of connections in the back of my mind to help with the meanings an origins of words in english, welsh, french etc.
    Some of it must have stuck vocab wise.

    That's what I'd like to be able to do. I've picked up a little bit over the years but not enough. I think I'll try and learn it when I retire.

    I think I had problems with the multifarious endings!

    eg

    And the verbs!

    I found it so, so much harder than French! I really admire the classicist posters on here!

    It wasn't on my curriculum after a year of disastrous French.

    amo, amas, amat, amamus, amatis, amant

    that's about it from me.

    although....what happened to vocative?

    That was the first verb I learned!


    (The vocative applies to nouns: see chart above)

    Hark at me, giving lessons now :D
