    Greetings to all Latin D members,

    Today, once again I would like to know the correct translation, meaning and use of the phrase "Nomina declinare et verba in primis pueri sciant, neque enim aliter pervenire ad intellectum sequentium possunt" which is present on the second page of the book Lingua Latina per se illustrata Grammatica Latina,

    Thank you,
    J.M

    In the context of the book, it says:
    "Boys should begin by learning to decline nouns and conjugate verbs; otherwise they will never be able to understand the next subject of study."

    I just realized that this one should as well be moved to the Latin to English translation am I right?

    Salve!
    One more thing... Is there any other book that I need to go along with Familia Romana? ( I have 3 of them: The book, the grammar book, and the exercise book)
