Alex, don't you think it looks like a homework?

I don't know, in Italy they never give as a homework to translate into Latin. Always from Latin.

Hm. Really? At Polish high schools it is also quite rare, but it is differently at universities. Some students have to translate into Latin a lot and their homeworks look often like this text above. Also when taking under consideration requester's age it is very possible to be a homework.
Anyway, since the translation has been already done and looks pretty good, I'd keep it this time.

You know, I'm just curious... If you really had never had to translate anything into Latin at your school, how it is possible that you are so excellent translator???

Because of YOU, Aneta!!

You taught me a lot, I have been improving my skills with your help. You may remember that my first translations were not so good... you had to correct them a lot!

Oh, it was nice of you but I wouldn't really say that! Your translations proved your high level from the very beginning, even if sometimes they needed some corrections.
Ergo, care discipule mi, just keep on progressing like this!!

"But it is not difficult, Athenians, to avoid death,
It is much harder to avoid evil, for it comes faster than death".

Could you tell me if it is a meaning of the Spanish sentence, Lilly? Thank you in advance!
