I am new to this forum, and have just started learning latin.
Feel free to remind me why learning latin is a good idea, if you please, as I am getting only negative feedback at the moment: 'latin is a dead language.'
Where are all these British types coming from???

The one claims that ae sounds like ai in aisle, and in the other it is pronounced as e. Which is correct? Also, I've noticed that people are in disagreement about the pronounciation of v. Please explain.
Also, Timothy, have you started versifying yet? It's quite difficult but with the proper links and a good topic the hexameters should be at least a third full.
