Latin Club!

Did you know that….65% of English language words come directly from Latin words.  Latin is the most efficient way to learn ENGLISH grammar. Latin is the language of law, government, logic, theology and science, not to mention the linguistic base for later languages such as FRENCH and SPANISH.  And maybe most importantly: according to the Educational Testing Service Latin students CONSISTENTLY outscore ALL other language students on the ACT and SAT tests year after year.  LATIN CLUB  LATIN CLUB  LATIN CLUB LATIN CLUB!
