I am curious about the best way to translate this sentence into Latin:
"If anyone asks what you are now learning tell them they are unworthy"
Thanks in advance! -Sue

Si quis quid studeas roget, dic eum indignum esse. "If anyone should ask what you study, tell them that they are unworthy."
Si quis quid studeas rogabit, dic eum indignum esse. "If anyone asks what you study, tell them that they are unworthy.
(1) and (2) are different in that 'rogo's mood changes; (1) subjunctive, (2) indicative. The subtlety here is whether you (1) don't expect somebody to ask you, or (2) do expect somebody to ask you.
Note that this translation may not be perfect without being given more context.
