    So at what point did you learn to read and understand unedited Greek and Latin? I'm amazed that you've learned a language at an analytical level in like.... 2 years? Woah.
    I've done Latin language since Year 7, and literature since year 11. I did accelerated Greek Lit and Lang GCSE and started in Year 10. I'm by no means fluent in either aha

    Hertfordshire - and it's soul-destroyingly dull. I'm only about 25 minutes away from London on the train though so it could be worse

    I did Latin and Greek for GCSE. There's a difference between modern and classical languages - imo you learn the modern language in order to speak it, you learn the classical language in order to read literature in that language and understand ancient culture

    Wow. the only languages we got at year seven was french. Then we got to choose german or spanish in year 8. :/ Latin is one of the coolest ancient european languages. I like greek, too, though, because it was spoken all the way into india and persia during the hellenistic era, which is really cool to me, but I'm a nerd, so it's ok.

    That's true, although I took French at AS level and if I'm being honest we were taught more to understand and translate into French than to think spontaneously in French, perhaps that changes at A2 and beyond, but I think I'd rather learn modern languages outside of the classroom
