Don't get a dog that looks like Star. You don't want to feel that the new dog is trying to take Star's place, because that's obviously impossible and (if you're at all like me!) you'll resent the new dog for that.

I personally find Latin easier, but I suspect this may be in part because I've already spent a great deal of time studying French, and the two languages are both Romance languages.

This suggests to me that it could be a lot easier to learn Greek (or Latin) words if they were seen as words in their own right, rather than counterparts to English words. The issue is psychological.
