Latin For Beginners

Some refer to Latin as the “dead language”, which may leave you wondering if learning Latin is worth the effort. If you believe it’s a useless endeavor, nothing could be further from the truth. Latin has a significant importance and influence in science, religion, philosophy, law, and literature. Latin roots often determine scientific terminology and species naming conventions. Catholic mass is still given in Latin, and if you work in law, you won’t be able to escape the influence of Latin in legal terms such as habeas corpus.

Latin does have limited reach as a spoken language. However, learning Latin can provide access to a wealth of classic literature. The seeds of the Latin language also have roots in Romance languages such as Italian, Portuguese, French, and Spanish.

Rosetta Stone designs language-learning programs that build confidence in understanding Latin. As a beginner, Rosetta Stone can help!
