Translation:The teacher and the student learn languages.
The "et" sounds lost to me, I listened four times and kept hearing "Magistrae discipula..."
I hear the "et," but it's blending into the end of "magistra."
So, it sounds more like one word, "magistraet."
Blending of vowels between words, or dropping final consonants or vowels happens in modern languages as well.
I got it wrong because I wrote "The teacher and student..." not "The teacher and THE student..." lol.
I do wish this course had a great deal less of the aural comprehension lessons. Unless one listens to a lot of Finnish radio, I have found listening to Latin to be one of the rarest uses I have made of the language, exceeded only by speaking it, I suppose.
That's a good suggestion, but I'm afraid I have the shortest of attention spans. While it seems a little silly to me to base one's assessment of Latin students mostly on their aural comprehension, I think it's an essential component of the assessment of a Hindi student or a Portuguese student, for instance.
Oh, you can't do "can't listen right now" on tests, unfortunately.
Finnish and Latin are not close at all, but YLE Finnish Radio has had a weekly news show in Latin for decades, Nuntii Latini. It's tonnes of fun, and anyone doing this program should definitely give it a listen, or I guess now a read online. https://areena.yle.fi/1-1931339
Oh, crap, I just read that page and noticed that they closed the show in June. Vae nobis, magnum malum discipulis linguae latinae est.
I'm not sure. If you go to the site, you'll see at least the last few written reports, and if the shows are available, I'm sure there'll be links.
Wow, thank you so much! Right on their homepage, towards the bottom there are espisodes with a play button. You can listen and follow along the text. Fantastic! By the way, while Google Translate has gotten to a pretty good point in Spanish (due to all the submissions for improvement coming in from users) it IS HORRIBLE in Latin. Look at what a job it did on a paragraph from the page Nuntii Latini -- Finis anni scholastici:
