why latin?

Latin may be hard to learn; it may be technically classified as a dead language; but it is still pervasive and important. Why?

Latin is the source of living and modern Romance languagesFrench, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Rumanian, Provençal, Catalan, Rhaeto-Romanic, Sardinian, and Ladino. And beyond that, Latin is the root and origin of an amazing number of English words and words in other non-Romance languages. Knowing a little Latin can help you navigate English and will earn you no few mileage points in these other languages, as well.

Many feel that Latin is interesting in its own right, even for non-scholarsinteresting linguistically as well as culturally. In addition to its "romantic charms," knowing a little Latin can help you in many everyday, practical wayshomework, general reading, literature, poetry, crossword puzzles, medical prescriptions, legal terms, history, the classics, liturgical, and more. And Latin mottos and slogans are still very much with us.
