Learn Latin today with our online course

22 Sep|Harry Mount

Latin – the universal key to Romance languages. Latin – the language that dominated Europe, from Hadrian’s Wall to north Africa, from the Atlantic coast to the Aegean Sea. Latin – the really easy-to-learn language. OK, it isn’t so easy to compose verse in Latin. But it’s not so hard to learn the construction of a basic Latin sentence, and to begin to understand the lines of even a complex master like Virgil. That’s how you’ll end up after these twelve video lessons, each of around six minutes long. In an hour and a half – or two lunch breaks – you’ll learn the rudiments of Latin: the word order; the cases; the genders; all four conjugations and all five declensions. –
