I wanted to leave a comment, and ask if the Latin V is pronounced as a W.

From the Tips page on the web site (that isn't available on mobile app):

Pronunciation

This course uses Classical Pronunciation. A few things worth noting:

  • V sounds like the English W
  • C always sounds like a K
  • G is always hard and never J
  • AE sounds like the English word "eye"
