New course (Latin)
I want to know who agrees for Latin for English. Please Vote
Man, latin is SO important for college people like me! I'm a student of philosophy and want to study theology as well, and you can't understand none of these well (well at least surely not theology) without knowing the language of Saint Augustin, Saint Thomas Aquinas and others.
Yup, but latin is a beginning. I think it's difficult to find anyone that could make a Duolingo course in these languages.
So there are people applying. Hopefully they'll accept you. The site could really use a boost of some user-requested content right now, and people have been asking for Latin since I first started on Duolingo, which was nearly two years ago.
yeah Latin even know it is a dead language has use for science and for other stuff and as well if you want to get an better understanding if the romance languages
It has a lot of speakers. In Italy is a school that teaches spoken Latin and spoken Ancient Greek. No other language is allowed. The classes are completely in the target language.
Could be interesting... it would be difficult to teach it in a conversational sense, but in a poetic sense it could easily be taught.
It's more and more common to learn Latin largely like any other language, including learning to speak it. In my view this is an excellent development and aids immensely in ensuring the language's ongoing vitality.
Just last night I went to a Latin speaking party at my friend's house where the ground rules were no English expect for one word at a time prefaced by "Quomodo dicitur" :)
