  1. Latin used to be required coursework for those who were on an academic track (college bound) when I was in junior high school back in the early 60’s. Not sure what happened.

  2. The older approach was to start w/ Latin and thence to Greek, which is Latin w/funny letters.

    Once one has Latin one has the structure of Latin one also has the structure of Greek.

  4. I wish someone would have been interested in teaching me Latin.

    Latin may be a dead language, but it is still used for some modern literature. I saw a Harry Potter book in Latin at a Barnes and Noble. I could understand enough to read that it said Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and not Sorcerer’s Stone.
