I found out today that I need to know about 1000 Latin words by tomorrow. I know about 20 of them. So yeah, I'm totally going to fail that Latin test tomorrow.

*goes back to studying in vein*

    What exactly is the point of remembering that many anyways? Why would they demand that many? Surely it's better to focus on fewer, but actually getting some use out of them?

    But it seems that you are indeed fucked.

    The point is probably so that in a real test, when you actually have to translate texts, you don't have to pull out your dictionary every time, which would save time.

    Actually, just play through as many finales of RPGs as you can. The sheer volume of latin spouted during final bosses there is insane.

    Yeah, that'll work.


    Just study as much as you can. Memorize the important wordS

    That wouldn't help me much. I could read Latin words all I want, but I still wouldn't know their meaning (which is the whole point).

    I'll be asked random words regardless of their importance sadly.

    This sounds ridiculously absurd.
    Where you expected to know the majority of these by now or did they drop them recently?

    Yeah I never learned my Latin wordlist. But it was so unfair, for every level so far in school we were given the wordlist in he exam and then they were like, "yeah we aren't doing that anymore."

    I failed Level 3 Latin.

    Well I knew about the test for weeks... Just not that it was this week (I thought next). So I sortof screwed myself, although I wasn't the only one. And this test isn't an exam and actually has the purpose of us learning these words, because else we wouldn't do it.

    Uhu. Well, maybe you're in the wrong class.
