The whole point of these discussions is to make languages fun. I've been studying them for my entire life and have a few under my belt. If they hadn't have been taught in a fun environment, I wouldn't have bothered. Deleting comments makes this not fun. Go and see the Danish or the German module forums for examples. A lot of people will be turned off, which is a shame as I've always wanted to learn Latin.
In Finnish we don't have articles either so I can say that it doesn't really cause any problems like you might think. If we would want to say that you are not someone's father in particular, we would just clarify who's father, but without clarification it works as a general statement.
"Thou" is the informal second person pronoun and was considered disrespectful in all but the most familiar settings. The difference is similar to the tu-vos distinction in Spanish. I use EmodE (early modern English) for a writing project and it really bugs me when the language is butchered in popular media. sigh What Pablo said.
For real, the quality of the audio for this course is quite poor, especially considering the other courses on this site. And this one is no exception. But the delivery! Man i hope when they get around to update the audio in the next 50 years or so, the voice actress they have mimics this delivery
"You haven't experienced Strindberg until you have heard him in the original Latin."
Yeah, they still have a long way to go. But remember this course is still in beta phase.
I think the problem with the pronunciations is that they're all native English speaker, so the accent is very strong. Maybe they should seek some native Romance language speakers to do it.
