Why Learn Latin

It may not seem like a relevant language to learn since it is a dead language, learning Latin is very useful. Latin is the base language for five major Languages spoken today: Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, English, and French. This means that learning Latin is helpful as all those other languages follow an identical structure and share many words and roots that are identical in all languages.

Another reason to learn Latin instead of another foreign language is that there is no speaking related homework as it is a dead language. The speaking portion of foreign language classes tend to be the most stressful for students, something a student would not need to worry about learning Latin.

Why Tutoring Helps

As with all secondary languages, it is not something one can easily learn on their own. Our tutors are well versed in Classical Latin texts with many methods and exercises to help students grasp the concepts behind Vocabulary, learn the grammatical rules, and become effective translators.

While we employ a variety of methodologies and strategies, we emphasize the Socratic method as it helps students think through the patterns in Latin translations and conjugations to find the answers themselves. This method of teaching has future ramifications as it carries over to future classes and helps develop self-reliance amongst students.

Future Benefits of Learning Latin

Learning Latin has future benefits as it makes you a more effective communicator. Learning the original meanings and uses of words help one use language more precisely and effectively. For many people, they do not truly learn and understand English grammar until they have learned it in a foreign language, and Latin is the easiest one to do so since it follows a logical pattern. This reinforcement of English grammar presents students with a better knowledge of grammar and allows them to communicate more clearly and effectively with their future employers.

Latin is also the language which many of our legal concepts are derived from. Prospective lawyers would benefit greatly by learning Latin. Phrases like “Quid pro quo”, “ex ante”, and “ad hoc” are directly taken from Latin and used in our legal system without translation. Understanding the core meanings and implications of these terms helps one make better
arguments and interpret law correctly.
