So.... I'm trying to learn Latin as a side project (read: doing my part to decrease worker productivity). My boss occasionally checks my exercises and helps me with the fine points of grammer. Besides the Latin, he knows classical Greek and a couple other languages, so we started talking about the benefits of knowing Latin (*snigger*) vs. other languages. I think we settled on Spanish and Chinese and Japanese as most economically profitable. But in terms of mastering English, what languages are most profitable? He suggested classical Greek, as the difference in grammer helps one better understand English grammer. Any-one here who knows the language, who can confirm or deny? And beyond that, what languages are best to learn?
