Is Latin good?

I started doing Latin (Like a few skills) and it seemed very easy. I know its still in beta, but is it good?

February 16, 2020



Duolingo's course is a very good course to start with. Definitely keep studying it if you are enjoying it. When you've finished there will be plenty of ways to continue learning Latin if the Duolingo course has not added more lessons.


wow you have a 2578 day streak, i only have a one.


it depends - rather interesting


Hey Joe, I just gave you 164 lingots!


wow, you got a LOT of lingots!! (sadly, there is not alot to use them for :(....) Does anyone want anything else to buy from duolingo?? I kinda want something more to buy.


I gave all the lingots back to the guy. He ended up giving me 203 lingots so I found another post of his and I just gave them all back. I didn't need them. I already have 102


lol, I have 74 right now :)


I earned 40 lingots in an hour, easy!


I know english, and I know a bit of french from duolingo, so I decided to learn english (yes i know its kinda cheating) to get free points. I'm still learning a lot of french from it and its really hard becaue I don't know french


I always wanted to get a bit of an understanding of Latin. Thanks to Duolingo I can do that.


Me too, it is an interesting language


La prononciation est à l'américaine (les voix font assez ecclésiastique) et l'idée de latiniser des termes ou des lieux modernes est franchement bizarre: j'aurais préféré y trouver des éléments de culture latine. Pour le moment c'est encore un survol de quelques bases, mais ça donne une idée de la langue et si beaucoup de monde s'y intéresse, on aura peut-être droit à des développements intéressants :)


Oui, je suis d’accord.


Wow, thanks for the lingots!


gratis est, itaque bonus - the course could however cause your computer to break in shards, but so far only three people have reported that happening.


[EN] You have just more facility than other people. Reason is potentially because your cultured and you know a lot of words in Latin who're in french but who became rare but which are becoming rare because of the Americanization of our beautiful language.

[FR] Tu as seulement plus de facilité que d'autres. La raison est potentiellement car tu es cultivé et que tu connais beaucoup de mots Latin qui sont en Français mais qui deviennent rare à cause de l'américanisation de notre magnifique langue.


What would "bad" look like?

It's good for starting out, but you'll need more resources as well. Try Legonium; the Legonium book is also very good for translation practice.
