I just assumed that Will was planning a trip to Latvia.
Are you still interested in learning Latin? I'd be willing to give you one-on-one tutoring if you'd like. I just got back from studying at the Academia Vivarium Novum in Rome (http://vivariumnovum.net/en) and am now pretty proficient with the language. Send me a message if you're interested. Go Redlegs tonight!
Brett if I were you I'd carpe this offer.

"And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
[QUOTE=marcshoe;2805945]Go to where it is spoken in everyday life and immerse yourself in the language.
Like Latin America!
I don't know what's so hard about learning Latin. There are two major groups who speak Latin: pigs and dead people. I think we're all smarter than both.
It's like a kid in my mythology class said when I asked him why he'd signed up since he hated the subject. "I just figured that this stuff's really old, so it must be easy, because people didn't know as much back then."
Vocabulary building language. And not much more.
Latin is a dead language,
Dead as dead can be.
First it killed the Romans
now it's killing me.
That is the only "latin" I remember
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
