Why are you learning Latin?

I'm learning it because I was told that you won't be able to understand anything in medicine/law (which I want to study) if you don't know fluent latin. What about you guys?

Intellectual curiosity.

I learned so I could become a Latin teacher. I wanted to share the literature and culture of Ancient Rome with the next generation.

I'm Catholic.

I'm learning it because I'm studying Roman history.

Because a lot of chemical and medical words are derived from Latin.

I'm just interested in Latin.

Because it looked interesting. I started the first time two years ago, but it teetered down. I picked it up again because me and a friend are learning it so we have a secret language amongst us.
