Yes, Latin itself is difficult. However, in my particular case, the class is not. Basically a guaranteed A+ and I don't learn anything. Really I sleep half of each class. Spanish was a challenge because it wasn't a bullshit class. True, with proper concentration and studying I could be "doing just fine" in Latin or Spanish despite learning later in life, but it's still much much easier to learn when young, and requires significantly less "studying." It also varies depending on how good your teacher is.

But that's probably not gonna happen in owr generation. English will "rule the world" for some more years

[quote="m shea"]My problem (as an American) is that I didn't start learning Spanish until 8th grade, when my brain was almost fully developed. I should have been taught at age three, and fluent by six. Instead it was impossibly difficult to learn, so I switched to Latin. Don't have to speak that haha.[/quote]

But as an american it must be equaly difficult to you, since latin is..well, a latin language, doesn't it?

Plus, I also started to learn french by the age of 12/13, and I do fine. Of course it's nothing like english. I started to lean english at the age of 10, and I contact with english all the time, unfortunatly french isn't popular, but its a cool language.

You're clever.

at the rate we're going, we'll have to learn chinese soon

The other day i went to a thrift shop and there it was a stretch maroon velvet (LMAO maternity) dress... naturally i got it. i may or may not wear it but i got it to remember...like white belt, messy doo, weird shoes, etc...

English is more cool

Besides if the whole world have to learn english, I don't think is a bad thing for native english speakers to learn a foreign language as well, it's always an awesome thing to be able to do, at least in my perspective. I guess americans hate that, for some reason.
