Haha I used to do Latin and Ancient Greek at school Rather interesting too!

If you really want to actually learn it, the Ecce Romani books are really good for it.

Book 1
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ecce-Romani-Meeting-Family-Reading/dp/0050034650
Book 2
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ecce-Romani-Latin-Reading-Course/dp/0050034669/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_y
Book 3
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ecce-Romani-Latin-Reading-Course/dp/0050034669/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_y

We started volume one in Year 7, so aged 11-12 here, and found it easy to follow, so I'm sure you wouldn't have any issues ^_^
The texts in them are a narrative of a Roman family and what they do, and should come with teacher's notes now as well

"Ecce! In pictura est puella nomine Cornelia. Cornelia est puella Romana quae in Italia habitat. Etiam in pictura est villa rustica ubi Cornelia aestate habitat. Cornelia est laeta quod iam in villa habitat. Cornelia iam sub arbore sedet et legit. Etiam in pictura est altera puella nomine Flavia. Flavia est puella Romana quae in villa vicina habitat. Dum Cornelia legit Flavia scribit. Laeta est Flavia quod Cornelia iam in villa habitat."

From googling and memory, the first text is something like that



Wow, thanks for the recommendation, had a look. The book looks great!!! And seems very easy to follow.

Latin is a beautiful language! I will check if my bookstore has this book. (Also helps that English is heavily based on Latin xD)


Another useful book is Wheelock's Latin 7th Edition. It's pretty solid and cheap as well. And it's a large tome as well.

Disce! An Introductory Latin Course is also another option, but is more expensive. It comes in two volumes I believe. I use it more often.

Korean, but I think that stems with my fascination with the alphabet more than the spoken language. It was invented over 500 years ago. It's a beautiful alphabet and very consistent.

Considering if I'll be able to live long enough to encounter an extraterrestrial, I would love to be able to communicate with one.

But I read that Korean and Japanese both take roughly the same amount of hours for an English speaker to learn well. From my own experience and what I heard from others, I think the difficulty level of characters is highly overrated.
