Why we should learn Latin and Greek languages?



  When people start thinking about learning a foreign language, one of the first thoughts that spring to mind is: “I am not going to learn languages because it is too hard.” But it’s not true because we have more easier way. This is learn Latin or Greek language because if you understand the main essence of these languages you can learn everything. I know that you have antipathy for these languages but you have to give me a chance and I can convince you in polite manner that there is no language most useful, more practical, and more valuable than Latin.
     Firstly, half of our English vocabulary is made up of Latin words and roots. By learning where these words came from, you gain a deeper understanding of the language and a greater appreciation  of what impact words actually have.
     Secondly, Latin is the most efficient way to learn grammar and not just English grammar because the structure of sentence is similar.
     Thirdly, Latin trains your mind and memory. Translating a Latin sentence is an exercise in logical thinking and also you will be know scientific and medical terminology.
Learn a dozen languages, but learn Latin first.
