Quote
We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
N.H. Kleinbaum, Dead Poets Society.

dark academia guide to study latin
As somone who studyed latin at school for five years, here are my tips for all of you who want to teach themselfes how to speak latin:
Forget everything you know about learning a new language. Latin and Greek are different in structure from any laguage you might know. It doesn´t work like English or French or German. The translating is much more mathematical.
Grab a vocabulary book.
Study every vocab in there (it should be about 2.5k).
Realize that there is no word for yes or no but about ten related to killing and dying
Take a look at the grammar. All of it.
Study it until it´s stuck in your brain. You´ll have to remember every little piece of it. Except for maybe the NcI. I never needed that.
At this point you will probably notice that it is almost impossible to learn how to actually speak Latin. Give up that dream. Not even my Latin teacher was able to do that.
Grab any Text from Ovid or Ceasar.
Never just translate from the start to the end of a sentence. Always look for the predicate first and build your sentence up on that. Expect very, very long sentences.
Now you will realize that even translating is a ton lot more difficult than yout thought and you will probbably fail, even if you know all the vocabs and grammar. Again, learning Latin doesn´t work like lerning French. You have to analyse every letter because one small “e” instead of an “a” could change the whole translation.
Hopefully you have now noticed that teaching Latin to yourself within a few months won´t work and believing so was naive.
You could probably learn it with a proper teacher and lots of time, but then it won´t be fun anymore and you will suffer just like all of us students did learning it at school.
Forget about the idea.
Cry.
