    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took Spanish in high school and was pretty terrible. I took Latin out of spontaneity because I had to study a language in order to graduate. I had no idea that I would be able to read both Spanish and French (to a limited extent), or that I would be able to understand the meaning of English words I had never seen before just because of my understanding of a "dead language." I have learned more about the English language and grammar in two semesters studying Latin than I ever have in any any English class, and the thought that I could hold out a conversation with Augustus Caesar is kinda cool.

    Course highlights:

    This is actually my most difficult course because it is so unlike anything I have ever done before. It requires a lot of critical thought, but somehow I can tell that it is influencing how I write, interpret, and think about English.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it with a grain of salt. No one is going to be impressed that you know Latin, because Latin just is not sexy. Little do they know that a firm grasp of Latin opens up a completely new way to think about the English language and communication in general.
