I’ve acquired an interest lately in learning something about the Latin language, since so much in Western civilization has grown out of it. Here are some Internet web sites which I found useful.

Here is an interesting story called The Right To Read which portrays the future of books, if the MPAA and RIAA have their choice in the matter.

Latina Pro Populo, also titled Latin For People, is a good introduction to the Latin language.
It covers basic Latin grammar and vocabulary. While Latin is known (deservedly so) as a complex language, this book does a good job of providing the basics, allowing the reader to actually read and comprehend simple Latin sentences in just a short amount of time.
Anyone who is simply curious about Latin, without the desire to spend years of study just to read a sentence or two, would find this book to be a great starting place.
