Latin

Latin in the 21st century may only be the official language of one European state (Vatican City), but studying it improves your understanding of the structure of English; you become a better writer and a more effective speaker. Latin is also an easy way into the study of other languages, particularly Italian, French and Spanish. Finally, a knowledge of Latin greatly enhances understanding of the essential cultural-historical background to Western civilization; it is a “royal road” (via regia) to important moments, ideas, personalities, and movements in Western cultural history.
