So I've decided that I'd like to learn Latin. Well I've actually been intrigued by the language for years but recently decided that I'd really like to learn it. Apparently Latin isn't exactly popular where I live as I checked all the local community colleges and none of them offer courses in the subject.I've done searches here and elsewhere and am undecided about Rosetta Stone as it appears to work for some but not others so even though I'm leaning that direction, I'm not sold on it yet. I would like to take classes and will need to do more research as to finding them, but right now the easy answer of college courses doesn't look to be working in my favor. I definitely want to have both text and audio to learn with audio being a requirement. So for those that have gone about learning the language, what do you recommend? P.S. I know I should be learning Spanish based on where I live, but the language never really excited me. My mom's even fluent in Spanish but never taught it to us growing up.But, I would like to learn the language but feel that I would quit soon after out of boredom. With Latin, I have a genuine interest and feel that I would be persistent with it as once I gain an interest in something I stick with it. This explains why I'm here for one. I'm also hoping that by learning Latin and having fun doing so, it would trigger a future excitement in learning Spanish and other languages.
