was assuming that to pass a Latin midterm, one needed to be "fluent." Au contraire (a phrase I don't know the Latin equivalent for.) One only needs to know how to recognize cognates, a smattering of verb forms, and the plot of the Aeneid to be able to deceive the world's greatest educational institutions into thinking you're a classics scholar.
