    Latin - Modern Languages

    Óscar Romerocollege Dendermonde, Belgium

    I studied Latin and Modern Languages in high school. Latin was a fascinating language to learn as it connected me to the great classical writers such as Virgil and Cicero, providing me with an incredible insight into their works and the culture of the ancient world. Learning the language of Latin also helped me to understand the etymology of many words, which I believe has made me a better writer. Additionally, I was able to learn about the grammar of the language, and this has been extremely beneficial for my other language studies. Learning Modern Languages also helped me to develop an appreciation for different cultures, and I was able to learn about the various dialects, literature, and other cultural aspects of different countries. My studies of Latin and Modern Languages have been incredibly beneficial, and I am eternally grateful for them.
