Much like their first and second declension counterparts, third declension endings modify nouns, with which they agree in three ways: case, number, and gender. It's just that these adjectives have third declension endings, and that there are three different types of these adjectives.

The Ides of March, the Kalends of February, the Nones of November. All of these dates are Roman style, and mysterious if you don't know how the Romans reckoned their dates. We owe a lot of our calendar to the Romans. This video covers the strange, traditional methods of the Romans in marking their dates.
Adjectives are always bothersome. We know they describe nouns, but in Latin they take the same case, number, and gender as the noun they modify. This can be easy if the nouns is of the same declension, but a bit more tricky if we cross declensions, where a 1st/2nd declension adjective modifies a 3rd declension noun: magnus leo.

One of the big hurdles for any beginning Latin student is dealing with the case system, which essentially does not exist in English. This video is a basic overview of the six main cases in Latin: the nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, ablative, and vocative.
The present passive may be tough to understand, but its formation if pretty simple. Instead of the active endings (-o/m, -s, -t, -mus, -tis, -nt), we just use the passive ones (-r, -ris, -tur, -mur, -mini, -ntur). It's so easy in fact, I am surprised, you are surprised: We are surprised.

Slightly different from masculine nouns, neuter nouns of the second declension follow specific rules for neuters. Learn these rules, and you won't have to learn an entirely different neuter declension. And then you can apply these same rules when you learn Greek, German, Russian, and many other languages. It's as easy as that.

All Latin nouns have a gender - they are masculine, feminine, or even neuter. Why? Sometimes it's because they refer to males or females, but much more frequently the gender of a noun is just one other fact of the word. Sure, it's different from English (and the neuter is foreign to many Romance languages), but not too difficult to master.
