Then you had teachers that allowed you not to learn the grammar. ;-) We had tests and everything and some stuff (like Ovid) is just really hard to translate without the grammar. I remember there once was a sentence from Aesop's fables in a test that nobody got right cause we all got the grammar wrong. The stag bit the dog but actually the dogs should have bitten the stag or something like that...

We did have those tests actually, but we never quite learned how to apply the grammar, which was quite a problem for most people. =/ I'm sad to say that most people never really learned, 'cause our teachers were just that horrible!
But yeah, it does take knowledge of the grammar to understand sentences.. We've done Ovid too, and I think we've discussed the actual piece you've mentioned! Only that was an example sentence in our case. I spent this year translating just Cicero. Which was.. interesting. xD
