Second and Third Form Latin update - week 14

Second Form: Today we reviewed the present system of first and second conjugation verbs in preparation for learning third and fourth conjugation. So - there was no new material today - but a lot for students to review over the next two weeks.

Third Form - Today we reviewed pronouns - they are very confusing in any language - there are 8 different kinds, overlapping forms, they can function as both pronouns and adjectives, they have antecedents, and there are two different agreement rules!  Then we moved to the next chapter and learned the 3rd person pronouns - is, ea, id - as well as the 3rd person possessive adjective - suus, sua, suum.

Remember there is no class next week due to the MLK holiday - we resume on January 23.
