I beleive all can use a rule "read as it is written" red."Latin" was always a trial.It was a code language for "Roman" army in the beginning also administrative language of empire after but i suppose people spoke on their native language(even most of 'Romans'").

It's like French....when spoken by a sultry, slutty babe..sexy.

And yet not.

Up until the early 50's latin was taught in High schools here.

As for Welsh, my grandfather was welsh. The only welsh I ever heard him speak was probably not"nice".
As for me learning any of it, forget it.


Like Chinese, which I learned in the RAF, it is much easier than they make out, once you learn the mutation rules, which make it difficult to use a dictionary - it has phonetic spelling, for a start.   My parents used to speak it when they wanted to keep things from me, which is a great incentive, and most of my relatives spoke both, or a weird mixture.   Lstin, on the other hand, lived in books and seldom came out: for O Level I leaned Book 4 of the Aeneid by heart in English, which got me through!   I much preferred Greek, which I've mostly forgotten.
