latin (6)

So I graduated from middle school this year (germany). This means that I had to choose if I wanted to learn Latin for another year and get the Latin proficiency certificate that I would most likely fail anyways. I obviously chose not to go for another year and choose Japanese instead which is more fun to learn and actually useful as opposed to latin. Why am I posting this? I simply want to put my infinite harted for latin into words. There is nothing in this world that would make me do those 4 years over again. It was hell. The very moment you decide to not learn for one test or something THAT'S IT! YOU'RE DONE FOR THE NEXT 2 OR 3 YEARS. If you don't have EVERYTHING in your brain there is no chance in hell that you'll pass that next test. My friend chose to learn latin for another year. We all know that it'll be very hard. I wish him strenght. I'm afraid he might not make it. If you live in germany and plan on having kids or have kids that are going to have to chose between latin and french try to make them chose french. It's also fucking hrd but the lesser evil in my opinion. And it's again actually useful.

To all the latin students: Never give up!

Failed Latin in high school. It was the only class I've ever failed in my life.

No regrets.

I, like you, had to study Latin for a while in middle school (I think it corresponds to middle school. Different system). First I liked it, but I started slacking on my homework, and my grades started going down drastically, which in turn caused me to hate the subject/language.

However, in my fourth year of Latin, at the start of the year, I decided to do my homework again. And I loved it. I suddenly saw how beautiful the language looked and sounded, and how flexible the grammar was. I might never find a practical use for it, but if that's the only thing you care about, you're doing this whole life thing wrong.

I wish they taught Latin where I went.
In middle school we could only learn Spanish or French, and while I liked French, I wish there was more variety. At the other middle and high school in the area, they had shit like German and Japanese.

My mother tried to teach me Latin (I was homeschooled) and I just ended up getting shouted at a lot. It's good to hear other people had a hard time with it too.
