@above you didn't do it quite well. You said to whom are men speaking Spanish and French? Wouldn't it be more well worded as Quis potet dicere Spanish et French?
I know, but I'm not sure how to say the phrase i was trying to. does this work? Cui causae sunt homines non dic*nt english?

I still don't get what you're saying.

To what causes are men speaking english?

You stuck two verbs in there, and I can't seem to find two clauses. and what is causae for?

lol at the last sentence. I'm only in Latin 1. Finishing it out. I guess you don't need to hear I'm in 6th grade.

I'm in Latin 1 too, but my teacher is great at teaching.
First Sentence: For what cause are people not speaking English?
Cui is a Dative Adjective, Causae is a Dative of Reference, Sunt is a verb, Homines is a subject, Non is an adverb, dic*unt is a 3rd plural present indicative active. The sentence can be reorganized to be: People are not speaking English for what cause?
Second Sentence: I envy your skill.
Ego is subject, invideo is a 1st singular present indicative active, tuo is and adjective, sollertia is a Direct Object.

I used to know Greek and French, but have mostly forgotten it. I speak fluent Danish, and I take Spanish in school.

My final is on Tuesday... usually it would be on Friday, the last day of school, but due to Nationals it was moved ahead. Not that I am complaining about going to Nationals!

Only at the end of the year is the French teacher messing my name up!
Her: Bridgit don't do your science.
Me: FOR THE LAST TIME I'M NOT BRIDGIT!!!!!
Her: [Cheesy] it probably won't be the last time.
