It's March 15, and on the ancient Roman calendar, today was known as the Ides of March. It's the fateful day on which Julius Caesar was assassinated after being forewarned that such a catastrophe could happen. There's no reason for you to beware the Ides of March or any other date on the calendar if you're taking our Latin 1 course. It's a great way to learn about Roman culture and learn about a language that is far from dead. In fact, Latin is perfect for those interested in becoming doctors or lawyers because so many terms in the medical and legal professions are in Latin. Even if you don't want to become a doctor or lawyer, Latin can help you brush up on your English skills because so many English words are derived from Latin. If Latin isn't your thing, don't worry. We have many other world language courses including ten from Rosetta Stone. Take them as part of your high school diploma program or on an individual basis. If you want to earn a high school diploma at home, we invite you to make it an Ides of March to remember and enroll today!
