Thank you very much.
I still find it difficult to rephrase this sentence:
Macbeth says that if he must know his deed, than (?) it would be best to lose all knoweledge of himself.
Does it mean that "he would rather lose knowledge of himself than acknoledge his crime"???
2) Can you help me better word this sentence:
Though German is not taught at our school, we hope to awaken our students' interest for this language.
1. Yes, I think your interpretation is right. And "to lose all knowledge of himself" could be another way of saying he'd rather die than acknowledge what he did.
2. Sounds fine to me.
