    What do you mean by Modern Latin? For example I did the Cambridge Latin Course all the way up to GCSE, and found it very useful and not too tedious, but it really depends on what you want to use it for. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    Well you see, I thought of learning Latin because I would like to learn some scientific texts in the language..but then I came to know that Latin had changed over the years and Classic Latin is sort of different to the one used during 1600s.. o.O So, right now I'm totally confused as to where to begin...

    The Cambridge Latin is probably the best place to start... well, it's what school's use to teach the basics, just to get the hang on it... They have a website, so work through from book I to book V... that way you'll learn quite a bit...
