    Hello,
    when I took the lesson 1 assessment, one of the questions asked what sound the syllable “OU” made, but “OU” is not a diphthong, and I thought that diphthongs are the only syllables made out of two vowels. If this is just a typo, could it please be fixed, but if it’s only that I don’t understand something, could someone help explain? Thank you in advance for your help!! 🙂

    God bless,

    -Miriam

    I’m not sure if this is a typo… since the lesson says that the diphthongs are the only double vowel combinations that can be in a single syllable, I just took it to mean how would you pronounce OU in adjacent syllables in a word…
    But, I am wondering the answer to this as well. 🙂

    Hi Miriam,

    On the assessment, there is this question: In Classical Latin, the syllable OU is pronounced as:; the correct answer is OU in HOUSE. You had that one correct on the assessment.

    Hello Mrs. Michael,
    I was wondering if you could help me with the assessment. I just got 46 out of 50 questions correct, and I am not sure which ones I have been getting wrong.

    Hi Miriam,

    Here is what you missed:

    The letters are divided into vowels ___ and ____. (You simply misspelled consonants.)
    Which of the following are Latin vowels?
    In ecclesiastical (Christian) Latin, the syllable CE is pronounced as:
    In Classical Latin, the syllable GE is pronounced as:

    God bless!
