Here you can discuss all things Latin. Use this board to ask questions about grammar, discuss learning strategies, get help with a difficult passage of Latin, and more.
I eventually want to study Latin, and I may just start sudying it sooner then I thought. I have been studying Greek for about a year, and I am just getting the hang of it now, and I feel comfortable to move on to a 2nd year course. But I have been considering jumping into Latin.
Are there any good couses for learning Latin that has a grammer course set up like Mounce? Such as focusing on the words that are used in the Bible the most?
Also, I was just curious if Latin was very hard to grasp, compared to Greek. Any suggestions? I study on my own so I am not under any academic obligations. I study for pure personal interest and a desire to understand the Scriptures better. So I am just hoping I can get some good suggestions and some "heads up" about Latin.

from my personal experience with Latin I'd have to say that it's a lot easier than Greek (I'm just starting to study Greek). Latin is a lot easier to read because it uses our alphabet, and it looks to me like it has more words that are closer to English than Greek does. Of course, like I said I'm just starting Greek so I don't really know how close Greek is to English.

For an english speaker, latin is by far easier than greek--and even moreso if you have studied Greek prior to latin. I found that the vocab is like english and the grammar is similar to greek, so it was almost in between.
