Excellent, thank you! I will check that one out for sure.
I’d like to learn it for a few reasons. Firstly, I just finished law school. I found that knowing Latin would have come in handy. Unfortunately taking time to learn the language while in school would have been impossible. Even though I am now done my studies, I still think it would come in useful in my career. I am the type of person who wants to know the meaning of everything I hear; so when I use a legal phrase that is Latin I do not just want the modern meaning, I want to know the root.
Beyond that I am a history addict. I would love to one day be able to read classic texts in their original languages. I’d also like to be one of the people helping carry on an important historical language.
I have multiple languages I would like to learn in the coming years. Some have their roots in Latin, so I think it could be a good starting point.
Anyone out there have any advice on learning Latin without a class?
I have intentionally put an ac into my bedroom that is designed to be used on a room triple the size of mine. As a result, I get to enjoy being bundled up in all my winter blankets despite the awful humid/muggy weather outside. Bliss.
