The first part will be focused on justification-- Latin is a "dead" language, so why bother learning it? It turns out there are some profound answers to this question that might surprise you.
The rest will be a head-first dive into Latin itself. At one point the lecturer, aestetix, had four years of formal Latin study, but please don't hold that against him. We will engage in a challenging (but fair), interactive, and educational demonstration of how enjoyable learning Latin can be.
