2 things you need to know to learn Latin

There are two things that you need to know before you learn Latin as an adult beginner.  They tell you whether your course/book/tutor works for you and they should be your mantra:

  1. Latin is easy.  Easy-peasy.
  2. The people who spoke it, the Romans, really are as nifty as you think they are.

In fact, the two are connected.  Latin is easy because it’s Roman.  The language is like the people: a straightforward people who valued efficiency and clarity.  So, latin is easy because the Romans were nifty.

If you find a book or class that makes Latin seem difficult, or your attention wander, you need a different book or class.

It’s that simple.
