Why study Latin?

LATIN BENEFIT 2

Boost your English

Increase your English word power

Over 70% of all English words are derived from Greek and Latin. Knowing Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes will not only help one remember word definitions but will also make it easier to determine the meaning of a new word.

Cara Ruccolo, senior at Andover

Increase your English writing skills

“In some curious way, the study of this intricate language enabled writers to write a beautiful, clear idiomatic English.

John Updike, American novelist

Increase your critical thinking

“Due to an interest in strengthening verbal and critical thinking skills, and the clear correlation between Latin study and improved academic performance, Latin instruction in elementary schools has doubled in the past 10 years.”

Katie Robinson of the National Committee for Latin

Increase your study skills in all subjects

“…even a rudimentary knowledge of Latin cuts down the labor and pains of learning almost any other subject by at least 50%.

Dorothy Sayers, English novelist
