Beware the Ides of March!
We will be having our final test of the 3rd quarter on this Friday – and it will test your understanding of the concepts we learned in Stage 7, namely the differences between Present, Imperfect, and Perfect tenses of verbs.
Look over your notes, work from Stage 7, and the crossword puzzle. There are 36 questions, all multiple choice. The first part will be a short paragraph in Latin, where you will have to answer questions. The second part will see if you can identify a description, written in Latin, of a character we have read about in our textbook. The third part will require you to identify whether a verb form is Present, Imperfect, of Perfect tense. Finally, part four will have you translate the underlined word.
Make sure you are looking over your work from Stage 6, reviewing the vocabulary and the difference between the Imperfect and Perfect tenses of verbs. Remember, if there is a -ba “trapped” within the verb, it is of the Imperfect tense and should be translated as “was/were -ing”.
If there is a VSUX in the verb, then you need to recognize it is of the Perfect tense and should be translated as “-ed” into English.

Updated – the test is for 2/19!
We are having a test for Stage 6 on Friday. The test is multiple choice, just like our other tests, and will require you to recall how to use the Imperfect tense and Perfect tense for verbs. Make sure you look over your notes and old work that we have done in class. Review your crossword for the Stage to look at your vocabulary, too. See you all Friday and good luck!
Remember that we are having a quiz on Stage 6 on Thursday, 1/26. We will be looking at the past tense of verbs – the Imperfect and Perfect tenses. Make sure you remember how to translate these verb forms and how to match them up correctly with their subjects!
Remember, tomorrow’s test is on Stage 7! There will be 47 multiple choice questions on the test arranged in several sections. The first section is a reading passage, in Latin, that will have some comprehension questions. This will be followed by some questions that will require you to translate from English into Latin certain verb tenses for example, the present, imperfect, and perfect tenses. Good luck!
Remember that you will be having your test on Stage 6 tomorrow! We moved the Test from Friday 2/11 to today! It will be multiple choice!
