    So-called "traditional Catholics" (whoever they are?) probably already know Latin.

    And what does one's gender, age, hair color and style of glasses have to do with speaking Latin???

    My experiences with nuns has been universally positive. The real ones, I mean, who don't wear pants suites and live in condos.

    I noticed that the voice they're using is an italian one. That doesn't get the stress right. It also doesn't pronounce "ae" and "oe" correctly. espeak has a classical latin tts, but it's about as good as can be expected from an open source free tts.

    That's because that's "dog latin" (not to be confused with pig latin) which is ill formed latin like you see in Harry Potter etc.

    Done?

    On the other hand was born and how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain, I will open a complete account of the moment, which is from Him explorer of the truth, and as a master builder of happy life, were said to you here. For no one is pleasure itself, because it is pleasure rejects, dislikes, or avoids, but because they follow the praising pain was born belongs to those who do not know how to pursue pleasure. Nor again is there anyone who loves pain itself, because it is pain, to obtain it would, but because it is rationally encounter consequences that toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us exercise because it is pain, but that it be some advantage from it consequences? But who has any right to find fault who are in the wish to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure
    I have no idea what that's from so I can't verify the veracity of that but I'm sure the original doesn't have the same language issues.

    cool.
    Learning latin, honestly, easiest language to learn ever. Seriously, like 90% of english words are derived from it, so really easy to remember, and very easy to know.

    Actually, if you if you include both french etymologies and words straight from Latin, it's around 60%. I think its quite a bit less if you ignore the words that came through french.

    Also, the vast majority of words you use every day are of germanic origin (THIS DOES NOT MEAN ENGLISH COMES FROM GERMAN!!!!!!!!) English and German have a common root called proto-germanic which wasn't written.
