If you have a good comprehensive near you and it teaches Latin and Greek you are indeed blessed .
..... because speaking and writing those languages is so useful?
I enjoyed learning Latin because I was taught by Queenie, wasn't intimidated by her sarcasm, and remember being held spellbound as she read The Aeneid to us. Hmmmm, seem unable to spell it now, and didn't understand a word then, but was captivated by her love of what she was reading and how she presented it.
I also thought that it had made me 'a good speller'. Wrong, unless it's medical or some scientific terms that you would like spelt.
Learning German would have been far more useful: when travelling in Germany and Austria, where the inhabitants, unlike the Spanish and Italian, fail to comprehend my facial expressions and waving arms, and now that I am working with equipment supplied by a german company who label bits in german only. Sometimes I just KNOW that babelfish has got the translation wrong, but I can't even begin to guess what the german word on the label means. Now, if it were in italian or spanish I could at least take a guess. Er, possibly because of my knowledge of Latin?
Anyway, I have never double differentiated anything outside of the school block at Hertford, not even contemplated executing a bound buttonhole since escaping from SWSNBN, or put on a pair of cricket pads. What I have done is struggle with ordering a cup of coffee in Frankfurt, balance my cheque book and understand the rules of Australian Football.
