Ingles y a poco espanol. Puedo hablar con una persona pero yo no hablo bueno espanol.

Basically I have the indicative down. Also most of the subjunctive. But not all. vocab is decent, but a little lacking.

Je parle un peu de français. Et le fromage est très épique. Mais pas comme Scioly.

Cui sunt homines dicit Spanish et French?

Sorry for any bad translations. And I can't type the Latin word "dic*nt" without the website making it "butterfly", I can understand why there is a filter for the site. The word means "say" or "comment".

Salvete! Possum dicere linguam latinam.

Hallo. Mein Deustch est nicht gut.

@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 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!
