Why are we learning how to say "New York" in Latin, again? Aren't there some more relevant cities to learn about in Latin?

Espescially since the course is called Latin and not Neo-Latin.

This woman has a very bad pronunciation...

"Marcus does not live in Rome but New York" is perfectly valid English. I don't understand why it was marked as in correct for not including 'in' before New York.

I think the "i" in "Novi Eboraci" indicates "in New York," just in the same way as the "e" in "Romae" indicates "in Rome". I hope I am right.

From the way the program works, you are correct. But I don't know why and I wish that I did know.

It sounds as if he is saying Marcus non a Romae... Listen to it, please.

I just couldn't make out what was being said


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sheldon405771

The voice-over sounds as if the speaker is adding a syllable right in front of Romae. This--unless it is correct diction--is confusing and harmful to listening comprehension.

It sounds as if he is saying non a Romae instead of non Romae
