  1. Also, why is "began to" used in some of the translations on page 19 in the Teacher's Edition of Latin Alive! book 1 for the imperfect tense of some verbs (ie: habitabamus, vocabant)? On page 17 it gives the options for past progressive, but is that list incomplete (ie: for the verb to love - I was loving, I used to love, I kept on loving)? Should "I began to love" be a translation for the imperfect/past progressive translation of the verb "to love"?
  2. When translating the imperfect, first person, singular verb "to love (amabam)" into English, can you say "I kept loving" or "I did love" instead of "I kept on loving"? Is "on" necessary?
