Learning Latin lament

This self generated on my morning walk, although, if I’m honest, it is far from the truth!

Learning Latin helped me tremendously in understanding language generally.

  1. Although I grumbled all the way through my 5 years of Latin at high school, I’m so glad I never gave up on it. It’s such a Meccano of a language, or it was the way we were taught it: put it together, take it apart. That really does help you understand the way languages work – even non-European ones.
